ok, after many attempts, I can’t figure out why I fail to capture the glide slope.
I am in APP mode, can see the pink localizers indications and the small g/s confirmation I am under the gs All 3 Auto Pilot command buttons are illuminated. When meeting the GS, the nose starts to dip, LOC mode comes on, then GS dissapears and the nose comes back up after about half a second to fly level with only LOC illuminated.
Please… what am I missing that kicks me out of the glides slope lock??? Been at this a few days now and air traffic in Sydney and Melbourne are growing to dislike the KLM airliner when the see it lol
Flight Dirctor (both) - on
ALT - HOLD on
SPEED - HOLD on
APP - ON <— this then switches off and the LOC mode activates
Auto Thrust - ON
FMC ILS approach selected
frustrated I finally turned to this, which makes it seem I am set up properly (I think) for the 747-400 https://www.aerofly.com/dokuwiki/doku.php/aircraft:boeing_747-400
