Fantastic!
I had an FOs confused the other day doing a CAT3 into AMS!
" Is there any adjustment to the fact that AMS is at -11 feet??"
He quickly recovered after ca 3,5 seconds.
I call that a pass!

Not so much!!

Wow guys, it never happened to you that you write something while thinking something else? Of course is not a radio altimeter, because normally the radio altimeter doesn't have the round thing that you can move clockwise or anti-clockwise and doing this you move the hand inside it (or you wanna call it needle, pointer, you choose the correct english word). The altimeter I'm talking about has all those things, so maybe is not a KRA-405B and I have the wrong information

Ok I can confirm that I was given a wrong information, the aircraft in question has a Radar Altimeter King KRA 405B, but also another normal altimeter and the 2 are combined together, so you can change your QNH with a knob on the right side and set the altitude on the Radio Altimeter with a knob on the left side. The setting for the QNH are in digital number but only on INHG, anybody knows if it possible to change this setting in MB? The information I received is that is a King KEA-346 encoding drum altimeter, but if I google it I find a different altimeter
