Schiphol ATC is always good for a laugh.... it needs to be, took me half an hour to taxi to the active Rwy 36L! Pics are from my flight K4204 Amsterdam/New York. If you would like to see the full flight in with sound and motion check here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sy37ah4sFzk
Hi folks, I am just conducting 747F flight Cargolux CLX762 from ELLX/LUX to SBGL/GIG and loaded delicate freight into the forward lower lobe compartment. Due to the freight's nature (don't know what it is? .. mushrooms for Brasil? LOL) - I set the AIR FLOW RATE to LOW-FWD and - I turned the FWD TEMP selector down to 9 o'clock position. Without seeing the connection the EQUIP COOLING message popped up (EICAS) and EQUIP LOW FLOW (STATUS). According to QRH I set EQUIPMENT COOLING SELECTOR - on ground to STBY - in flight to OVRD The latter eliminates the message in flight, however, due to the QRH advice to land at the nearest suitable airport I was in doubt regarding the flight to Rio. Another thread here in the forum Aft Cargo Heat temp question provided the following: Playing on the FWD temperature selector the 'higher' 10°C notch (two show 10°C) and higher temperatures eliminates the CAUTION messages in the NORM selection as well. I checked the 747 FCOM, but found no information that the FWD lower lobe compartment shouldn't be cooled below 10°C. So, if the EQ compartment exhaust is used to heat the forward lower lobe compartment, it might be impossible to cool it below a certain value. Any thoughts? Is the real behaviour? (I think so...)
