A glimpse into the future 2. (part 1)

I was pretty pissed when i checked my drafts and found nothing. Yeah i typed wat looked like an essay and even took the effort to put pictures in it. And its all gone….. man o man. i spent the entire night writing it. and i was hoping to post it. o well guess theres no choice then. Ill have just have to re-edit and rewrite it. _______________________________________________________________________________________________
Goodbye seat bay! yay! haha goodbye to all those godforsaken seats and goodbye to gluing, the velcro, the cushion, covers, heavy metal tracks, and goodbye to walking.
So guess where was i stationed? I was stationed at the Hangar maintenance line 07. Each line has an aircraft. And mine happened to have a MAS aircraft. BOEING 747-400. which would look like this.
The rough view of how big it is. Its given in metres so u guys/gals can guess how big it is. 2nd largest commercial aircraft u know. don play play.
so thats the interior layout.
owh yeah before that i must tell u that most of the pictures are well taken from the web. I couldnt take pictures of the aircraft due to 2 things. My hp’s camera is f**ked and this.
On our first day there, the aircraft was stuck outside. undergoing a defuelling procedure and we were jus walking up and down the aircraft. When we asked if we could go inside the aircraft, the guy said yeah y not. So up we went. we went through the nose landing gear. (there werent any aero-bridge or one of those trucks which has stairs on its back.
i guess it shouldve been “we emerged from there” if it was the old post, it wouldve made perfect sense. By the way thats at the first class seat area. When we got in there it was messy. Imagine rubbish all over the place. Seats taken out. Wires and cables dangling all over the place and what makes it worse was that there weren’t any air cond. It was 12-1, and we were in a metal bird with no aircond, and it wasnt raining. As soon as we got on, we were like “damn”
we head on to the upper deck and just looked around. There were lots of instruction manuals all over the place. They were manuals on how to use the business class seat. (there are lots of nifty functions, like massaging, recline, and adjustments to the head, back and legs) Then we headed on to the cockpit.
Okay it looks like this. Honestly thats it. Its actually very small. Most to most can fit 3 fellas comfortably. Then there is a place where the pilot or co-pilot sleep (the bunk) right behind the left seat.
Other than that we head on to the cabin crew bunk. thats where the stewards and stewardess sleep, rest, chat, f**k, and screw around.
The cabin crew bunk is located at the back of the aircraft. (if u look at the interior layout of the aircraft u can see that the arrow is showing where it is) 10 people can fit in here. 8 beds and 2 chairs. unless the bed has 2 fellas den well i guess can fit more people.
Inside the fuselage i kept thinking of all the boeing 747 movies out there like this one.
Weird isnt it. I kept thinking of how harrison ford escaped from the terrorists and fought them. And i was pretty amazed since in the movie the 747 seemed a lot bigger. Bear in mind that the aircraft i went in was almost completely empty and yet i keep wondering how come in that movie the aircraft interior was like super huge.
