I was sitting in front of a 764 when it was pulling into the gate at ATL this morning and noticed that there were 2 lights, a green and an orange, that came on when it seemed like the PIC put the parking brakes on. Is this some sort of indication to the tug driver that the brakes are set and its OK to do his thing?
