Awww.. now you're getting down-right silly!! they're simply to grab
onto when climbing out of the pilot (and copilot) seats.. and when
climbing into the seats as well. Those are some tight quarters.

Likely true, but wouldn't you think they'd retract into the ceiling a bit
when not in use? I would hate to have them hanging in my face during a long
trip.

You know, it is funny but I did not notice these things during any of my
flights.

me neither.. here's my left-seat handle..
http://home.comcast.net/~flightsim/Boeing_handle.jpg (98k)

so ya want to see the whole `beast panel'.. on final into LAX..
http://home.comcast.net/~flightsim/whole_panel.jpg (190k)


That handle is rather large.. but not in the way really. Is it ever
enjoyable to fly the ol' Boeing in FlightSim. Only wish the young guys
had a chance to catch a ride on her for real. Those were the days..!!
It was `technology from our space program.' { in that newsreel voice }

-G

p.s. yep the panel cap isnt shaped right but chopped for better view..

No, definitely not. Could you imagine to stow, release, stow again, release
again etc. thoughout the day? :-))))
And think about weight penalty. But I must also add that on other A/C the
handles are in a somewhat more decent place as e.g. in the Airbuses, where
it is buried in the ceiling.

HA HA HA! ...How quaint, Dallas! The perfect touch (and maybe much
needed )

I can tell we probably relate to those dice. I had some in a '57 Chevy few
decades ago :)

Hell, you did good! I just had a Rochester two barrel in the old Chevy.
The automatic transimission was a TWO SPEED Power Glide, I believe. It
shifted one time at 15 mph and it easily ran past 100 in the second gear.
But how would I know :) 

Nice sound too. In fact, darned nice with the 283 V8 and straight exhaust
pipes.

Did you own it in 1957 as a new car? Or was this one of those "American
Graffiti" 1960's things?

Nope, did not own it as a new car. I picked one up about 15 years ago. It
was a 4 door hardtop and red body. Nice looking car. Drove great and had
the engine re-built. Ran great and had that classic deep throaty sound.
That 283 was a very smooth running engine. It looked good on the street and
turned a lot of heads as it went by. That's the fun part. Had to sell it
about 10 years ago. I put 50,000 miles on the thing!

Did you have one?
