I don't think you'll find a single real-world MD-11 equipped with this. Especially because CAT3 brings your decision height pretty low anyways.Although it would be sweet to see it implemented in FS, i'm not sure how you would though.Patrick

Actually, FedEx has begun installation of a Heads Up Guidance System that also uses infrared technology (similar to FLIR in the military) in the MD-10 and MD-11s to enhance safety and situational awareness.

If you watch the entire video she says at the end that they are certified and been installed on the FedX MD-11. Nice to have more situational awareness for pilots in low visibility conditions even with CAT111 landings mistakes can happen which might be prevented by been able to see terrain on approach.Paul
