Y'all Gotta Know How to Fly

Couldn't agree with you more for those who have commented on basic flying skills required to land the MD.

For those who haven't flown it, well, there are those who have, and there are those who...

The correct Q code for runway heading is QFU. Period! (ICAO Doc. 8400 or, ACP 131E)

ILS QDM? How about LOC's QDM, to be correct.

So, it should read: a check of the LOC's QDM against the...

FMC fuel entry - MD11 with MEL 28-41-xx

If the FQIS is giving an erroneous indication, it is a simple matter, after starting one engine, to go to the FMC INIT page - FUEL, and deselect FQ (fuel quantity).
By doing this, the FOB is...

Okay, I'll ask the obvious question:

Did QF74 use de-rated thrust for TKOF, and what was CLTHR (CLTHR1 or CLTHR2)?

On occasion, de-rated TKOF and CLTHR can be the same.

0100LT 28MAY in ANC

None - a few points of order/clarification are needed.

ANC has mountains to the north east - these would not effect either the departure off 25R or the GA off 14 (either published or assigned...

Careful with the T-bone

Careful about using the T-bone headset (P/N 258260).

Whilst it conforms to TSO-C139, the amount of regenerative feedback during transmission makes the transmission sound like coming from the...

Smile A380 - almost a pleasure to pax on

Had to do a quick positioning flight last Monday - BNE/SYD/LAX/ORD. The best part was on the A380 - quiet, and plenty of leg room. Great IFES with a multitude of movies to choose.
And yes, I was...

Vref - here are some numbers

With a MLW of 213.8T, the MD11 VREF is 163KIAS. VAPP is nominally VREF +5 = 168KIAS. With a gust factor of 20kt or additives to VREF of up to 20kt, VAPP can get as high as 183KIAS.

To the Defence (spelt with a "c") of 411A

I reckon it would be odds-on that 411A is a "dyed in the wool" Yank. So his method of spelling "practice" (the noun) would be with an "s"; same would apply for "licence" (the noun).
I know - England...

Griffo - er, No

Sir Denis James "Jim" Killen AC, KCMG was the member for Moreton (Qld); he was never a senator.

Glueball - Obvious Problem

Your problems are obvious:
The MD11 has THROTTLES (not thrust levers) and only THREE (not four).

9 Shackles - very convenient

Being a not so ancient mariner, it is nice to know that some things don't change - 100 fathoms (200m by today's measuring stick) per shackle. I only run 50m per "shackle" but then again, I am the one...

Md11 Ats

The recommendation from MDC (now Boeing) is that if the ATS is available, it SHOULD be used. This is different from the BAC philosophy - if AP is disconnected, ATS should also be disconnected.

FMA changes


Also, at 80kt, the FMA T/O THRUST changes to CLAMP (and the "green box" or any items in the essential takeoff items checklist disappear; the FD pitch bar biases into view).
At 100kt,...
