4,800’ descending from 5,900’ to 1,100’, on a constant heading (092-093) which was what the automation would be tracking. And then at 1,100’ they turn left 16-17 degrees and we’re supposed to believe they’re following the FMC provided lateral and vertical guidance? Of course professional pilots don’t believe that.

Minimums are 620’. That’s if they’re on course. Calling “stable” while deviating from the autoflight guidance is a worthless call.

Or, if the guidance/FMC caused the airplane to turn 15 degrees of course, the aircraft and/or approach should have been written up. But since they made it in the second time, with no tracking problems, perhaps it wasn’t an equipment issue?
