Infographic Airplane!  from Kulula Airlines

Infographic Airplane! from Kulula Airlines

This is a great new infographic paint job on a Kulula Airlines (a South Africa airline) Boeing 737, informative and humorous.  With labels detailing many of the plane’s features, this looks like a a training plane.  See the high-res photos on Flickr.


“The Big Cheese” identifies the pilot seat, and Co-Captain is on the other side for the co-pilot.  “Jump Seat” is for “the wannabe pilots”.


Even the location of the Black Box is identified with the useful information “(which it’s actually orange).”  Who knew the loo was also the “mile-high club initiation chamber”?!?


From the Flightstory Aviation Blog

In addition, the following descriptions of plane parts can be found:

galley (cuppa anyone?)avionics (fancy navigation stuff)windows (best view in the world)wing #1 and #2engine #1 and #2 (26 000 pounds of thrust)emergency exit = throne zone (more leg room baby!)seats (better than taxi seats)some windows = kulula fans (the coolest peeps in the world)black box (which is actually orange)landing gear (comes standard with supa-fly mags)back door (no bribery/corruption here)tail (featuring an awesome logo)loo (or mile-high club initiation chamber)rudder (the steering thingy)stabiliser (the other steering thingy)a.p.u. (extra power when you need it most)galley (food, food, food, food…)boot spaceZS-ZWP (OK-PIK) = secret agent code (aka plane’s registration)overhead cabins (VIP seating for your hand luggage)fuel tanks (the go-go juice)cargo dooraircon ducts (not that kulula needs it… they’re already cool)front door (our door is always open … unless we’re at 41 000 feet)cockpit window = sun roofnose cone (radar, antenna, and a really big dish inside)


Photos were posted on Flickr by member shanairpic.  I found them through Nathan’s post on FlowingData and thanks to Jesse for sending in a link.
