MD-11 (FS9) - No ILS line in PFD?

Recommended Posts

According to the MD-11 ITV video with Martinair...during the ILS approach the PFD shows a magenta line when lined up according to the ILS.However..I'm not seeing that line.What'am I missing / doing wrong? The correct ILS freq is entered in the FMC and the plane is on autoland (appr only)24mvu4j.jpg

In addition to Harry's point also press the APR button to display the approach screen on the ND if you desire.

The problem is that you didn't enter the ILS front course. I'm surprised that the plane would even capture the beam without having that very critical info.Paul

This is a display item.When you enter that "very critical info" in the wrong way, the aircraft will not intercept the fake Loc Course.Harry

That's why I was surprised that the plane even intercepted the LOC.Paul
