Identify this Boeing cockpit

Thu Feb 08, 2018 1:23 pm

Hi there, I've been trying to figure out which plane is in this image but simply can't figure it out. I'm pretty sure it's either a B757 or B767 but their cockpit commonality is really throwing me off. Any of you know specific details that separate the two? Thanks.

I'm no expert on cockpit layout for either aircraft, but if you blow the picture up, you can see the fleet number placard that says 66?4 (above the Capt's altimeter). The third number is kind of blocked out, but the only aircraft that comes close in United's fleet is N664UA, a 767-300 with a fleet number of 6664.

The placard above the FO speed indicator says N664UA, which makes it a 767-300ER.
On the very left of the Captains Main Panel is a placard with "763W", maybe for 767-300 Winglets?

But apart from that I don't know how to tell 757 and 767 apart from that perspective.
Happy Landings

Actually the FO's placard also displays the fleet number (6664) which would make it the 767-300.

Captain looks pretty calm too, considering all the EICAS messages he's got going on there

And the fact that he is above the clouds with both engines shutoff! :D

:cloudnine: And, airspeed is zero, altitude is 100' and gear is down...And United's art department has to justify their salaries by using their photoshop skills.

Given the lens flare, this is obviously a JJ Abrams movie and not the real thing.

Even in 2018 they don't want a black man piloting their planes.



Joking obviously.

Typically the lower part of the 757 and 767 are very similar and indiscernible. (Typically - I am sure someone will point out an obscure fact about a certain carrier or something).
On the overhead - it would be quicker to tell the difference on the left had side where the hydraulic pump switches are.
The 757's have push button only - the 767 have push button and rotary switches.

No engines, no hydraulics, no IRS'es, front door open... but it's ok he stayed at a holiday inn express last night.

Another way to tell that this is a 767 is the "Reserve Brakes & Steering" switch. It is "Reserve Brakes" only on the 757. Also, if hydraulics were on you would be able to see the inboard ailerons on the lower EICAS screen (767 only).
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.
