Boeing 737 clockwork cockpit by NinjaPickle Boeing 737 clockwork cockpit by NinjaPickle
I haven't done much airliner photography. Mostly because I haven't been flying lately! :iconangryplz: Grrr...... So I found one I took a few years back at museum of Flight Seattle of an old 737-200 flight deck complete with old-school "clock" gauges. A "steam" cockpit as many pilots call it. :)

Old-school maybe, but I find them easier to read, and more reliable when you lose power...

I'm only a veteran pilot of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 though, so I'm not reallyone to talk. :P

I LOVE the look of old school cockpits :love: And your right on that about losing power. Alot of your gyro driven instruments will continue to operate for a few minutes after power or vacuum loss, because of the flywheel effect of the gyroscope inside :D

Hmm, didn't know that bit of detail. Interesting. I mostly just love the older style cockpits for the planes they tend to be in. I'll take a prop over a jet engine any day of the week! :)

:XD: same here. I loved alot of the big props too. The DC-6/7 The Stratocruiser, and the lovely Miss Connie ;) I have some photos of a Constellation and a photo of its Flight Engineers panel in my gallery if you love those analogue instruments :D

Most of my favourites are the WWII-era props: the B-17 Superfortess, C-47 Skytrain, Ju 87 Stuka, Me 109E, A6M Zero-sen, Aichi D3A, and naturally a whole bunch of others I won't list here for the sake of not boring you. :D

Now if only I could actually FLY all those planes... That'd be SWEET.

All very good planes. I also like the B-36 Peacemaker which arrived just after the war. It's a whopper!!!! :o

I think it dwarfed EVERYTHING. I honestly think that it's wingspan is STILL longer than even the A380's :o

I flew on a 737-200 about nine years ago. I wish I was smart enough to ask to see the flight deck! :doh: Oh, well, poop happens! :)

If I look closely :

We are flying banking at 90° (aouch) with the right engine running strong while the other one almost does ;We are descending very slowely (arround 200 ft/min at 900 ft at arround 80 Knots ...


I know it's a museum but they could have done it more realistic :lol:

NinjaPickle Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2009
XDDDDDD! I never really payed any attention to that! What a rough flight that would be. Banking at 90 degrees!!!!! Well that certainly explains why it's only a fuselage on display. It ripped its wings off!!!! :omg:
