I'm only going to say this one more time. They do (at leats on the 717). The only issue is the Maddog series doesn't have any indicator to show it. The 717 does, and part of the taxi control check is...

Red Herring. If in FLCH and HOLD, it looks to me like it will never automatically activate.

At 200ft, the IAS was ~118, with a Vref of 132.

I think some posters do not realise how much power these types have at low level. Even if the pilots reduced to 75% N1 (737 Unreliable Airspeed thrust setting? Mine's 80% N1) once the gear is up,...

The 717 has a display of the elevator position, and has had so from build. I'm surprised that the NTSB didn't mention that. The control check procedures were tweaked after this accident, but even...
