747 autoland disconnects

Recommended Posts

Help!Question for the 747 autoland.Would appreciate any help to determine why the AP disconnects on final in the 747 around 50 AGL. I beleive I have all set up right on approach. Everything is smooth and GS is locked on. I have a LAND readout with FLARE and ROLLOUT on the primary display. At around 50 AGL IU get a warning claxon announcing AP disconnect at which time I have to dive for the stick to get the girl on the ground.Do I need a LAND 3 for a full autoland and is that only available at some airports? This does not seem right as even at some major internationals I can't autoland. Could it have something to do with tuning for ILS as I do nothing now just select the RWY in the FMC and let the ILS fequency auto tune (eg I don't manually set the Freq for both vor 1 and 2).Any Help would be great.Regards,badgeros
