Alaska 737

Wed Feb 23, 2000 6:59 am

I was looking at pictures on this site and noticed the 737-200 (N741AS) have gravel kits. I know the pupose of it, but how can you tell? are the engines placed differently? I see the -200s at SEA sometimes and want to see it. Thank you!

One of the most significant things to notice about gravel kits is the piece of metal attached to the aft of the nose gear. Somethin like it has detectors in it. Hope somebody knows more about this.
