Just to clarify?? (Autobrakes??)

Recommended Posts

Am I correct in assuming that the autobrake system in the 747-400 only applies wheel brakes, and raises the spoilers? It does not infact apply reverse thrust? I found out the hard way after a 15 hours realtime haul from KLAX to YSSY - landing runway 6L I was waiting for the reversers to kick in and nothing was happening so finally I manually activated the Rev Thrust.

Reverse Thrust is manually applied as in the real aeroplane :)

I don`t think any real aircraft has reversers that automatically deploy with autobrakes,its just a microsoft as real as it gets thing.I`d be interested if anyone knows different. Jon

How about military aircraft? I think I read that the tornado has a reverse bucket system which can be armed to auto deploy on touch down, but I'm guessing it is still up to the pilot to apply thrust?
