MD11 speed tape question

Recommended Posts

I would like to learn more about some of the information that is displayed on the speed tape. Some of the letters are in green, others are in amber color. What does the color indicate? I see letters, such as "GE" or "SE". I have tried to find information in the manuals, but have not been successful. Is this type of detail covered in the manuals? If so, can you please point me to it?THANKS,Jim

Amber color means you are not supposed to extend yet, green means extension of this flap is OK.Michael J.http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/9320/apollo17vf7.jpg
