The first thing that caught my eye when I came close to this B737-200, delivered April 1972, were the noticeable rivets on the fuselage. I recall reading somewhere that Boeing changed the way of building the 737’s fuselage in 1973. That’s the reason, I think, you won’t find such a observable rivets on later B737-200s.

The classic 737 (or "la chancha" as we call it) is all an institution here in Argentina! thanks for sharing this picture.

The rivets are improvements on vulnerable parts of the forward and aft fuselage arpund the passenger windows. After the Hawaii incident Boeing directed B732 owners with a specific cycle run to apply these modificaitons.

Great detail on this photo robert. however i'm not to crazy about the several repair jobs that have been done right above the windows, yikes!

Those are repair rivets - added with the skin doublers you can see above the windows for added strength later in the aircraft's life (Remember Aloha Air?). This 737 didn't come from Boeing this way! - Brett
