Turquoise/Aqua colored cockpits?

Tue Aug 08, 2017 8:09 pm

Greetings to all. Does anyone know why Russian Soviet classic jetliners had greenish-blue cockpits? Even the DC-9, why?

I just saw a picture of a super80 cockpit the other day and wondered the same thing.

Google has as many answers as you care to read: https://www.google.com/search?q=why+are ... kpits+blue

They all run in the same direction as the ones above.
Inspiration, move me brightly! Light the song with sense and color.
Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask.
Faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last.
Some rise, some fall, some climb, to get to Terrapin!
