That's great! You can see a lot of details and that's why I have a lof of questions: Why left engine has more power? If yes, that's why right fuel indicator has 10 (lbs/l?) more than the left one? If yes, how long have they been flying like this?

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 10, 2005:
The aircraft is very slightly left of centreline, as can be seen on the f/o's EADI (Electric Attitude Direction Indicator).The aircraft is being flown manually, this can be seen by the green 'FD'(flight director) annunciation at the top of the ADI, if the autopilot were engaged, 'CMD' would be there. The go around at Salzburg needs a left turn as can be seen by the pink line beyond the runway on you can see on the map display. Let's face it, you are not going to turn right with that mountain there! The 737 will land with 30 or 40 degrees of flap. In this case flap 40 is in use, the wind speed has no bearing on amount of flap used unless very strong when you probably would use 30 rather than 40. Into an airfield like Salzburg, the aircraft will be in a landing configuration early in the approach, it's not a place to take lightly!
I think the daylight 'photo is superb here as the stunning, very near high ground needs to be seen.
The approach onto the other end is even more spectacular!

Spectacular photo!! Lovin it!! The glideslope comment: It is slightly off center, but only slightly. Autopilot will correct that slowly. By the time it's down to 500 ft, it's dead center. BTW,u can see what I'm talking about on the FO's GS.

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 29, 2005:
Excellent detailed shot. You can see the airplane is at just over 2300 ft MSL (but only 1000+ AGL) at 144 knots heading 156. As to the glide slope discussion - it is clearly dead center on the glide slope as can be seen from both the captain's GS indicator (the purple diamond on the right side of artificial horizon) as well as the red and white lights visible (a bit fuzzy, but still both red and whit can be made out) on the runway's precision approach lighting.

What the heck should be wrong with the glideslope? Btw. Wonderful opportunity to make a great shot.

A visitor from Greece posted Fri October 28, 2005:
Full Flaps are down most probably because of the Minimum Approach Speed that the captain has selected. (140 kias)

A visitor from Estonia posted Fri October 28, 2005:
So nice photo! The cockpit is very sharp and gives a perfect overview of the panel.

A visitor from Ecuador posted Fri October 28, 2005:
Great!!Right heading and right position.Notice the TCAS,more funny!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 28, 2005:
It's a great pic. And the glideslope comment: it looks like they're on the glideslope to me.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 27, 2005:
Awesome shot! As far as the go-around comment is, I am no expert on this but look at the altitude selected in the autopilot, 6000 feet, and the go-around is about a 185-190 degree turn.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 27, 2005:
Great Panel shot- what's the glideslope comment about -it looks spot on to me-am I missing something?

What does interest me is where the hell do you go if you have to go around here -no straight ahead to 3000 Ft option is there?

Undoubtly AUSTRIA

Cool ;)

i have the same pic, same aircraft @ night, but ai.net refuses to upload it :(.. great airport, especially the spotting places @ rw 16 .. greez from austria (salzurg) :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 27, 2005:
I love it but the pic should have been taken in the middle of the night, in the middle of a well estamblished city to give it that little bit more. That would have done it for me

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 27, 2005:
I think its a really good photo, i love Boeing 737's from the outside, and now i love them on the inside aswell

A visitor from Canada posted Thu October 27, 2005:
Just look at all those dials and lights and instruments, I have such an appreciation for what pilots do because I know that I could never do it myself.

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 27, 2005:
Okay, I´d like a ticket for exactly that seat ;-)

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu October 27, 2005:
Wow! Nice picture!
I wonder why they have full flaps with 15kts wind....

A visitor from Germany posted Thu October 27, 2005:
Glideslope, glideslope !!
put it back on the glideslope
