MCP Lighting

Recommended Posts

At this time of year I am mostly flying at night. So far I have not found a way to illuminate the MCP figures i.e. Altitude ,Course, Speed etc. The only illumination is the general lighting of the MCP. Also is there a way to light up the keys on the CDU ?  In the PMDG 777 all these items are lit.

There are multiple. There are three knobs below the display units in front of the captain (two of them are immediately to the left of the CDU), two in front of the first officer, two on the overhead, and two at the back of the pedestal. Usually there is one for backlighting (the numbers and lettering) and one for flood lighting (except the overhead, which has two for backlighting - one for the overhead itself, and one for the circuit breakers).
