Remarks: Flight Deck of Qantas B737-476 VH-TJX Cn 28150 (Named: Stawell), taken with Power On, while docked at the Brisbane Airport Domestic Qantas Satellite Terminal on 29Aug2012. Note the Hybrid Analog/Glass Instrument Panel. The remaining Qantas B737-476s will soon be replaced by B737-838s, with current Glass Cockpits. Photo taken after a 1.4 hour flight from Canberra as QF952. Thanks to the Aircraft Captain for the photo opportunity. Footnote: VH-TJX Ferried from Melbourne to Avalon as QF 6111 on 15Oct2012, and she was still at YMAV in early December. (Ref: Australian Aviation Magazine Jan/Feb2013).
Remarks: Is that an un-missable Cockpit Fire Warning? No! It is an unusual close cropped view of the Flight Deck of Qantas B737-838 VH-VZE Cn 34199 (Named: Bunbury), taken while docked at Gate 20 at the Brisbane Airport Domestic Terminal. Instead of the details usually seen on the six Liquid Crystal Displays (LQDs), the First Officer selected this bright red ‘shutters’ mode, which blocks all info on the displays. (Blue ‘shutters’ and a black/white diagonal zebra pattern were also demonstrated.) Thanks to the Aircraft Captain for the photo opportunity. Photo taken after a 1.3 hour early morning flight from Canberra on 19Dec2012.
Remarks:Antonov Bureau 2332 sitting at the old ITB with no action around her after arriving from Singapore a couple of nights ago. Can definitely say the drive up to Brisbane was worth it for this exotic Soviet-era beast! My first sighting of an AN-124 and I was definitely impressed. [1600px]
