Hi

In a German TV magazine there was a story that all airliners have to
get a video system in the cockpit, so the pilots can check whats going on in
the cabin and (!) to give them a view outside to the engines etc.

I can't belive that this is true.

They even told that this type of system has to be installed onboard every
airline-aircraft going to the US from about 2002.

Anybody heard something about this too and can tell me the true story?
