But digital FBW, like digital autopilots, has modes and I don't know any planes with analogue FBW that do.
Try the Tu204... If Quadruplex FBW fails, it reverts to a 3 channel analogue FBW.

suspect that given the option to go around in the weather they were in, believing that there was a problem with the braking system they'd likely have diverted to an airport with a longer runway.
And saved the day! *Hindsight self-warning!*

The short answer is: quite a lot. It is a highly-redundant system.
Cheers, Where can I find it in the FCOM? I need to read it to better understand it.

So, if it was a failure, it should have had a warning, would this warning be inhibited on the final stages of the approach? *Just so that it's clear*
