Hey Timf, thanks for the cool pictures!

I have never seen that much ice on an airframe. Are they just going to let them sit and thaw out or are they going to pour a thousand gallons of de-ice on them?

QantasA332:

Are the -300 cockpits gauges and not screens? I thought the -300s were glass cockpits with a flight crew of two? I guess if I didn't assume, I might have spent time going through pictures! Thanks for the answer QantasA332 and UTA_flyinghigh.

There is a thread in the civil forum asking about the -300 and -400s. I have a different question. Other than winglets, what is the difference between the two series?
