Nope.
For the B747-300 I think there was a "half flow" option on the pack controllers for use in crz. SOP's mandated what pack selection was used and 1 pack was not one of them. Personally I, FEO,...

How come then many airlines SOP is idle reverse and use the brakes to stop?

Centaurus,

The concept of testing reverse thrust prior to...

I use bifocals and in the few aircraft where I need sunglasses I use clip ons. Yeah, I know daggy to the max but very effective - just flip up the lens and voila, no impediment to IFR.

The short answer to your question wrench1 is yes. But, and a big BUT, the aircraft would have stalled anyway.

Toruk Macto no, that's not how it went. All ranks, Cpt, F/O, S/O and FEO did it together.

When I did the initial CRM as a 2 day live in course it was run by Cpt Graham Beaumont.
