..it is visible that the primary flight instruments are digital. I never knew this was an option for a 747-200, anyone has any more details on this? Thanks!

FDX is going to that flight deck upgrade for their 757's they are aquiring.
|Quoting Tb727 (Reply 6):|
NW changed all or most of their 742Fs over to EFIS engine instruments
|Quoting Flynavy (Reply 8):|
Any idea if FX will retrofit their 757s FMS from PIP to Pegasus FMCs as well?
|Quoting Ex52tech (Reply 9):|
It is called EIDS, and they put it on all of the DC10-30s, DC10 -40s, and the 742 fleet also. It has the capability to take snap shots, and has an exceedence page. Very good system, works very well.
|Quoting Tb727 (Reply 6):|
NW changed all or most of their 742Fs over to EFIS engine instruments and Kalitta Air has also including some ADI and HSI upgrades much like the Martinair 742. They are more reliable than the original and look good too.
|Quoting Jetlagged (Reply 11):|
The LCDs are quite small and not especially readable however.
|Quoting Ex52tech (Reply 12):|
They weren't any smaller or harder to read than the original tapes. They also have a lock on any exceedence that pilots don't like to have documented.

The old tapes do record exceedances, but not as comprehensively (or tamper free) as the EIDS. However compared to round dial presentation the EIDS is not as readable and I know crews who thought the conversion of round dials to EIDS was a backward step (then again some crews liked it)

I don't see the upgrades in that pic. I've actually yet to see any of Kalitta's upgrade pics, other then what my dad has shown me from work.
