I’m 6’3 and found it fine too. Not a very comfortable aircraft for more than 1.5-2h legs no matter how tall you are though!

Old ships we encounter includes one with the legacy electrical systems and plenty with the “old” alternate brakes and NWS off the Green HYD.

I think in this case, the root cause was being heroically high and fast and not binning it very early. SA was left behind way back up the approach leading to the lack of awareness of modes and...
