After 9:15, watch the standby altimeter:

The needle stops moving every few hundred feet. Maybe the vibrator is inoperative?

Thought she was doing a great job of flying the approach, then I hear the autopilot disconnect at 600 feet... 

The other clue she wasn't flying (apart from the PFD annunciations) was when she took her hand off the controls to scratch her nose.

I wonder what was broken... Only >LAND 2<
