Quoting Paneuropean (Thread starter):
I do know sometimes they exchange them with the 777 noses because they are similar
I would think that they would have to be exactly the same to swap noses. Are you sure about that?
|Quoting 474218 (Reply 8):|
The radome (that is the proper name for the "nose") is interchangeable from one 777 to another. They are built that way so is a radome is damaged it can be replaced quickly.
|Quoting FSPilot747 (Reply 10):|
Yes, but you can't take a 777 radome and put it on a 767, as the original poster implied. (or at least that's what I thought he implied).
|Quoting JBo (Reply 12):|
Actually I believe the nose section of a 777 (from the cockpit windows forward) is identical to the 767. I forget the technical name for the actual section number of the aircraft, however.
|Quoting FSPilot747 (Reply 13):|
In that case, I stand corrected. What threw me off is that they interchange them because they are "similar".. They'd have to be the same thing.
