Couple of 777 anomolies,,,

Recommended Posts

Couple of things I noticed on my last flight with the 777 (with the latest patch).The missing green backlighting on some of the text still hasn't been resolved:, there is some bizare behavior with regard to the FIX page and it's markings on the ND while in PLAN mode: the picture above I placed a 40 mile ring around the London VOR. I then went in the plan view and stepped through the legs in the FMC. Whilst the route shifted, the green markings didn't. The green markings on the left of the picture should be centered about 1 mile north of EGLL, indicated by the blue circle near the center. Clearly this is not the case.Another thing is the fuel prediction. I made a flight from Beijing to London. Set the fuel calculator to add some 18T (lbs not kgs) extra reserve fuel. Once I loaded that fuel into the aircraft, the FMC had calculated 30T extra at destination. At TOD some 10 hours later, it was estimating 60T remaining. I have other products that use FMC's and they only differ +/-10T max during flights.Also, I wish to add my voice to the growing number asking about the 757 load editor & fuel calc. It's been sitting in the hangar collecting dust since purchase which I'm non too happy about.
