  • Watching the angle enroute VHHH-RJAA

    Welcome on board B744 from Hong Kong Intl to Tokyo-Narita.
    These pictures belong to a "landing angle"-topic some days ago. We wanted to know "how far do you pull during t/o and during final approach".
    This is a simulator-answer (pics are sorted backwards, with special attention to the touchdown):

    ground speed = 0.

    touchdown. as far as i can remember, the angle was 8.

    coming in nice and slow.

    welcome to Tokyo.

    a different angle..

    Hong Kong departure, I gained v/s by only pulling 8-10 at the adequate speed, then the a/p took over.

    The German long haul is alive, 65 years and still kicking.
    The Gold Member in the 747 club, 50 years since the first LH 747.
    And constantly advanced, 744 and 748 /w upper and lower EICAS.
    This is Lohausen International airport speaking, echo delta delta lima.
