What Planes Have HUDs?

Sun Jan 21, 2001 4:22 pm

Is it just the 737-800s that have the Head Up Displays? I got a chance to see one of those recently - THEY ARE BRIGHT!!!

The Alaska Airlines 737-400s are equipped with HUDs and I have flown on an ex Austrian Airlines MD-82 that was later with South African carrier Sun Air that was also equipped with a HUD.

I would imagine that all the aircraft in Alaskas fleet are equipped with HUDs, because this airline pioneered the civilian use of the Head-Up Guidance System on Boeing 727s in the mid-1980s.

Behind every "no" is a "yes"
