Question reg. Wind Indicaton on PROG page/ND

Recommended Posts

Hallo Captains,I have a little question which bothers me for some time now, so I will ask you for an answer.Look at this picture for reference if you like:wind.jpgAs you can see the wind direction indication on the PROG page differs from the one on the ND. My question is: why ?My best guess was that it has to do with magnetic vs. true heading.I would appreciate it, if someone took the time to answer this little question. :-)Have a nice day

I can't speak for the MD11 FMS but in the Smith's FMS (NG) The FMS displays True and the ND displays Magnetic. You were correct.
