Yes, of course. I had the oportunity to read the introduction guide while returning from L.A. this week on-board the real 763 and I came across that bit of information; which I thought was a creative way foward for PMDG. I still wanted my old key-mapping so that I don't look for those same shortcuts when back in the Queen, LOL...

BTW, while passing through Atlanta yesterday, I noticed what I thought was a MD-11 taxing parallel to us, but on the other side of the runways. This brings up a question I wanted to ask. How can one tell, from a distance, the obvious difference between a DC-10 and MD-11? Don't they basically look the same?

Ah, then based on the winglets, like the PMDG model, I would have to say it was a MD-11 that I saw. The winglets certainly don't seem as pronounced as a 738 or 752. From a long distance (maybe a 100 yards or more) and a side-profile view, I guess the winglets would be the only difference I could recognize between the two. Interesting, thanks for the reply Markus.
