Before disembarking QF416 from Melbourne after my flight to Canberra was cancelled and I'll have to be rerouted. Many thanks to the kindly crew member for this precious chance, safe flight! :) [EOS 400D/Efs 18-55mm]

This picture could have been taken the day this aircraft rolled off the Boeing production line, it was on April 23, 2000. The panel looks as new and the picture quality is fantastic, very clean and still a fantastic airliner. Long live the 76 and the crews at Qantas that operate them - DH FO 747 WITH QF

This is a great shot that balanced the view between the outside glare and the dimmer light inside. But I couldn't help notice that the pilots have thrown the log book and the pilot operating handbook up on the glare shield.....against the windshield. That's a big no-no. You might think that the winshield is very tough to be able to withstand 600 miles per hour....and it is, believe me. But that only goes for the outer pane of transparency. The outer pane is sacrificial. The inner pane is sensitive to scratches. If you can hook a fingernail on an inner surface scratch, about .004 deep, it's a windshield change. Look at the metal rings in the book that the Captain is holding. Now, to be fair, if one of those books has scratched the windshield, technically you could get out the optical micrometer and focus on the bottom of the scratch to see if it is indeed .004 or deeper. If anyone can figure out how to look through the optical micrometer between that glare shield and the wind screen, let me know because I know of no way to do it. What then? Change the windshield. So basically ANY scratch will result in a windshield change.
