RE: Delta Plugging 737NG Windows?

Plugging the eyebrow windows on the 737 is a great idea. Saves weight, does not require inspection or replacement, cuts down on spare parts, and reduces glare in the cockpit. Quite often crews would simply stuff a few sheets of newspaper over the window to block out the sun, making the windows effec...
