mm43, no worries, I couldn't figure out the point of the post either! States the obvious.

I thought I would put out a revised GE version using now-available data.

What I can't quite understand yet is why they maintained 2500ft after the localizer intercept - they were cleared the approach "upon interception" well before BASKN, so he could have descended to the FAF Xing altitude but didn't. It was not a big deal as 200ft high isn't a problem but I wonder what led then to the persistent selection of "1500" on the VS?

I'm sure the final report will have some interesting observations.
