B737 flight deck

I'm a trainee on the 737 fleet for a national airline in the subcontinent. A few days ago a Captain asked me to find three places in the cockpit with the Boeing logo. I have been looking everywhere but to no avail. (No, the logo on the FCOM's don't count)

The logo I'm not sure, but apparently the only place it is written is on the DV Window open/close lever. I guess that part isn't made by Boeing and the company that makes it just stamps it with Boeing and the serial.

perhaps on the control column? not sure will have a little root around when flying tommorrow.

If you feel up to it you can ask him to find the letter J anywhere in the flight deck not counting the CDU!!

There are only 2 and they're a bugger to find. a hint have a close look at the handle to move the rudder peddles.

Don't help him and just watch him stare at all the bulbs with the light test on.

And yes i did it too.

With that sort of question/training, I'm not surprised young lads can't fly straight & level (on autopilot?) when the skipper goes for a leak

May be better training that one would think: It is one way to encourage someone to actually look at evertyhing in the cocpit rather than focus on just the interesting bits.

One the other hand there is a long tradition when it comes to trainees, the mechanic/tradesmen equivalent is the sending the eager newcomer to the store in search of the mythical "left handed monkey wrench". At least in the good old days each store owner was well aware of the practice and would senf the victim on to the next store.

You are surely jesting? And if you want to get your own back on the smart-arse captain you could always ask him to show you where to find information on the standby power source for the flight attendant call button on the flight deck.

As I can recall it is printed near the bottom on the Captains window, on the plastic also inside the spare bulb thing
