Tue Apr 25, 2006 3:27 am

Hey, does anybody know from what line number the 747-400 started to recieve the Newer All in One Stand By Gauge? I would like to know how many of those 744`s are out there.

It's an operator selectable feature so there isn't one tail number where they switched the entire fleet to the all-in-one.
Some aircraft were delivered with the separate indicators after some were delivered with the composite.
It's all about money, eh?

Thanks, but I found different info. I found out that no other 744 before the Ln 1308 had the ISFD, So the first aicraft with it was The first 747-400ER for Qantas, and no 744 after that had the old gauge.

Do you work for Boeing or were did you get the info.

I thought only the B-747-400ER and ERF have the ISFD, and the B-747-400/F have the two gauges. In other words, the new UPS B-747-400F will get the duel, is that not correct?

Well, I guess I was wrong. Thanks for showing a great pic of the cockpit of one of your B-747-400s.

From one layman to another...

The older standby instruments were 3 mechanical displays just to the left of the centre CRT, above the left CDU...

In the same place in Kaddyuk's photo you see a single, integrated LCD display.
