RE: FSX ILS Approach - Coming Down Too Early

Hi Genius12, The APP mode in autopilot locks only the heading, tracking the runway centerline. It does not manage glideslope info.

The 767's nose section looks different from the Airbuses - it's a little stubby and short, whereas the Airbuses have a sleeker nose section. That and of course the tailcone and the forward-tilting main gear would give the 767 away. You can also identify the 757 by looking at the nose section alone, ...
