But does the degree of autobrake and reverse thrust vary, or are the same values always used?

And if the landing performance required satisfied the despatcher, was he assuming the same values for...

No significant aquaplaning?

If there was any aquaplaning, it must have been minimal and not to all tyres simultaneously. If there had been significant aquaplaning, the strong crosswind would have caused major problems with...

Why only idle reverse? Is the F100 incapable of more than idle?

Inappropriate use of reverse thrust was a factor in the QF1 overrun at Bangkok in 1999.

Tyres don’t have infinite grip. We’re used to having all the grip available to retard the aircraft, but when a strong crosswind prevails during the rollout, a good amount of the grip is being used...

Thanks, rcoight.

It seems that Western Section have not done a single gravel landing with their PC24s, whilst Central has done just the one. Why the apparent avoidance of gravel?

A little birdy told me that, after Central Section did that filming of FMP on the dirt strip, it was out of action for about 10 days for repairs caused by gravel damage.

Anybody can confirm?

They always seem to veer left, irrespective of whether the cause was rudder trim or "power lever migration". The 3 in the USA, the one in the UK and Essendon. All went left.

How do you know that accident was caused by the trim, Lead Balloon?

It may have been one of the other King Air vices (e.g "power lever migration").

Boeing did include exactly that warning in the flight manuals, but deleted it - no doubt, due product liability concerns.

Actually, with the thrust line higher than previous versions, and the jet outlet further forward, the pitch-up on thrust increase will be less.

But, the MCAS is not there for the pitch-up. It is...

Agreed, gums.

Something that would give the pitch-down moment at high alpha, but would not add drag in the cruise. I haven't come up with anything yet. The closest I have come is the idea of...

Discorde, nice try, but it looks fishy. It looks "Flight Simulator-ish". Please stop posting that.
