For the life of me, I can't locate the switch for this function. Also, in the nose gear not supposed to turn left or right?

If you're referring to the 747-400, the cockpit lighting is located on the overhead panel at the lower left. There are 3 or 4 switches for the cockpit lighting. I usually don't fly with the night scenery so I haven't used them that much. Can you elaborate on what you mean about the nose gear not turning left or right? If you just want to know that if the nose wheel is supposed to turn, the answer is yes. But you have to add a little power and taxi the plane straight and then you turn the nosewheel in the direction you want. In the real aircraft, the pilot uses a tiller to steer the nosewheel. I believe it's up to 20 or 25 knots. If you try to turn the nosewheel and it's straight, it won't turn if the plane is not moving. If this doesn't answer your question, just let us know.Ken.

Thanks Ken,I am using the 747-400F Cargo. Sorry for the confussion for I was being interupted by several phone calls. In my haste I forgot too mention which bird. I'll look for those switches this afternoon. I'll also taxi around and check the nose wheel. Back to the lighting switches for a moment. If it wasn't for the exceptional calarity of the PSS panels I would have a much more difficult time with the PMDG panel because it is just plain unreadable. Familiarity with the PSS has been a big help.Thanks again,Bob
