Red Cockpit Window Frames On 737

Thu May 17, 2007 2:25 am

why do some 737's have red metal window frames on the windshields? does this appear on other boeing models?

Yes. It is to denote which window is the emergency egress "hatch" on airplanes. You will also see it on many DC-8's 9's and Maddogs and 727's. It is marked on some planes and others it is not.
