747-F Radar

Fri Jun 17, 2005 9:27 pm

Do the -F versions of 747's have the radar package in the nose, or elsewhere? I'm assuming it's in the nose, but I was just curious and wanted to make sure.

The RADAR antenna is definetly in the nose. I seem to recall the tranceiver is in a different place than the "normal" position but I can't remember if it's in the articulating part of the nose. It's been 15 or so years since I worked on a nose loading B747.
