How Large Are 767 Windows?

Fri Nov 28, 2008 12:14 am

I know a 777 windows are 15 inches high and 10 inch wide and 787 are 18 inches high 10 inches wide, so I wonder how large are 767 200 and 300 windows? I reed some where 767 200/300 has smaller norrowbodies windows, this was something fix on the 767 400, by fitting T-7 windows on it. So what is the size of a 767 200/300 windows?

I believe that the windows on the 767 are the same of the Boeing narrowbodies, and these date back to the days of the 707.

707 windows are:

228.6 mm x 317.5 mm
or 9" x 12.5"

I recently read that they were fitting 777 windows on the new build 767 tankers.

Very interesting question from a pax point of view!  bigthumbsup 

So what we have so far:

707-767: 9" x 12.5"
777: 10" x 15"
787: 10" x 18"

Correct?

I'm trying to find out what the window sizes of other aircraft are and came up with this:

DC-8: 17 1/8" x 20 5/8" from this thread:
http://www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/tech_ops/read.main/196818/
Is that right? I don't remember the DC-8 windows being so huge!

DC-10/MD-11: 9.8" x 15.7"

Can anybody add to this list. For example airbus wide- and narrowbodies?

I have seen references to DC-8 windows being 16" x 18", and DC-10/MD-11 windows being 11" x 16". The latter is mentioned in a Douglas sales brochure for the DC-10.

Quoted dimensions in various sources may possibly vary as some may be referring to the actual outside dimensions, part of which would be covered by the window frames etc., while others may only refer to the actual transparent part of the window you can see through. Your DC-8 dimensions sound too big to me, although they were certainly far bigger than 707 windows.

Unfortunately, due to their approximate 40" spacing (equivalent to typical first class seat pitch then) while economy class seat pitch was usually 34 inches in those days, many Y class seats on DC-8s didn't line up with a window, and a few rows had no window at all, or just a sliver of the window in front or behind. With the DC-9, Douglas introduced the same type of small, closely-spaced windows as Boeing, which ensured that every row had at least one window.

The DC-8's big windows (assuming you had one) were one of the best things about flying on the DC-8. Same applies to the DC-10 and MD-11 compared to other current widebodies.

For big windows, it was hard to compete with the Vickers Viscount, 19" x 26" if memory correct.

Wow, those are huge!

That's what I thought as well. What's also important of course, is the location of the windows. If I compare for example the 737NG windows with a32X windows. The windows in the 737 are certainly bigger, but sit annoyingly low. The a32X windows are in a much better position, but smaller.

With those Vickers windows, it doesn't matter though!!

My favorite window on any plane was the right side window in the cockpit of the DC-10, adjacent to the jumpseat. I got to ride on the jumpseat many times when HA had the -10's, and it's like sitting next to a picture window in flight:

The window itself is about three feet high, and two and a half feet wide with no posts or rails to interfere with the view. While sitting in the jumpseat the window ran from hip level to well above your head, and from behind your ear to nearly out of arms reach in front. It really was as close to not having any obstruction to the view as possible in an airliner.
