a skipper and I got quite low once in 5k vis on the way into Basrah, we had lined up on street lights "that must have been" the runway.

It wasnt until I picked up the Head down display showing us 3 miles offset did we realise there was something up...

Always flown FD coupled from then on to the final fix to prevent re-occurence, especially in doggers vis and on goggs. The fact we had flown 125 hours in the previous 30 days may have had a contributory factor...
