Read the account in Flt Inter. I know its not wise to believe everything you read in that mag, so can someone answer a question? Nah Im not airbus rated. Strictley Boeing.

The ADI crossbar I understand is a visual indication of flight control movement - inputs from the gamestick and/or ELAC/SEC(?) inputs. This crossbar is suposed to disapear upon lift-off.

Why would anyone want to match elevater deflection with initial target pitch atitude on T.O.? Am I missin something? :confused:

Slasher, you are missing nothing as regards the controls and that is the whole point! The Maltese cross shows only stick commands - not control service movement.

I believe it was an A340-(300?).

Yeh your right. A340. Sorrey.

If elevater deflection indication was matched to initial target pitch then logicaley the actual aircraft pitch atitude would decrease as the aircraft acelerated on the T.O. roll, as per the Flt Inter article.

So what the hell were the gamestick players thinking at the time? :bored:
