Can any pilots/ground engineers explain the autopilot system on say a B747.?
I am refering to the mid-air incident London to Nairobi BA flight when that disturbed person tried to kill all on board. What I would like to know is if you grab the control column will it respond? i.e does it disengage the auto pilot and respond???
Just a little confusing as to what happend up there in that flight deck?
I was also wondering if Bryan Ferry was going to bring out a new version of I'm all shook up! (He was on that flight)......sorry could not resist?
