Any upcoming updates for the 737NG?

Recommended Posts

Well, I had a look at the upcoming 747 400F, and it will have an optional more "modern" panel. Since the 737 NG also modernised the panel in the same way in real life like in this shot-> http://www.airliners.net/open.file/754532/L/and removed the eyebrows-> http://www.airliners.net/open.file/830046/L/Is there even a remote possibility of modeling the newer panel and no eyebrows as a sort of "update"??

Which would you rather have, a unit with moving parts and an MTBF in the thousands of hours, or one with no moving parts and an MTBF in the tens of thousands of hours?

I dunno, I'm just so used to computers failing that I'm lery when I see them start creeping into cockpits. I may be young, but I fear technology like an old fogey. :-hah I did like that gag photo of the flight displays all showing the Windows blue-screen-of-death.----------------------------------------------------------------John MorganReal World: KGEG, UND Aerospace Spokane Satillite, Private ASEL 141.2 hrs, 314 landings, 46 inst. apprs.Virtual: MSFS 2004"There is a feeling about an airport that no other piece of ground can have.

For example, let's look at the Solaris operating system - very robust and reliable when running on Sun hardware. But I get "alpha" hardware from Sun for testing, and the OS will crash _hourly_. By the time the hardware is in production, the exact same OS will run for years without a problem. In fact, if it weren't for the twice a year electrical maintenance in our data center to inspect and test ups and generator equipment, we wouldn't reboot our Sun hardware at all. Of course the sun hardware costs at least 4x as much as Dell hardware of similar horsepower.The level of quality in the avionics hardware is even better than that, particularly in the units used in transport aircraft.
