I've never flown a 744, but it seems to me that it's best to never fight against the automation. Instead, program the automation to deliver the flight path you want, ideally in a mode with as many protections as possible.
Situation is you have captured the G/S.

You are at a particular flap setting and wanting to increase the flaps. You change the SPEED in the MCP to match the flap setting speed indicated on the speed tape.

However, if the airplane is slow in slowing down (speed vector not seen yet) to the new speed and you dont want to use SPOILERS/SPEED BRAKES, is it a safe/good practice to pull down on the thrust levers while the A/T is still engaged? So that, you can let the A/T takeover once you are confident that the flap speed would be achievable.

This is a flight simmer's question. I was trying to understand if the pilots are advised either to use or not to operate the thrust levers when A/T is still engaged.

Very nice analysis, Hardy!

Much better than "Why is it doing that?" !

Yep, we have 5 boxes.  ❐❐❐❐.❐Z

Is there a space after the "Z"?

I assume, when a time is entered in the boxes without an A or B suffix, the time indication will be followed by a "Z" and a space. So when you later add an A or B, the time digits will stay at the their positions instead of jumping one column to the left. The A or B will just go into the space.

Altitude constraints too have a space in the last column which is filled with an A or B (or S) when required. So the altitude digits will stay at their positions instead of jumping sideways when a suffix changes.

I thought each .situ has a comment section. Is that long enough?

I figured there was a way, I just didn't see it,

Thanks Hardy...

G-VXLG was the 747 in the VIR19 video.  I was fortunate to be in my garden in Stockport as she made her final approach to Manchester EGCC.  She gathered with Virgin's other 747's before expected final flights for disposal.

It has been a joy over the years to catch sight of them all either on approach to 23R or on a Monty 1S departure.  Many thanks to all the crew who have so often given me a pleasurable reason to pause in my gardening and look skywards.  I'd like to add my applause.

Hi Al,

yes, this is linked with the option "RA inside attitude indicator". So when the RA indicator is at the bottom, the RADIO is at the bottom too.

Greetings, this is for any of you experienced PSX users, of which there are many:

Is there anyway to switch the positions of the BARO/RADIO on the PFD, so that BARO is on the top and RADIO is on the bottom of the Attitude Display.

I did not see an option for that in Model - Programming on the Instructor Station.

I am more used to seeing it displayed this way...
thank you for the update Avi.
