How to Land a Boeing 747-400

Main Checklist

  • Get on the radio, and tell whoever's listening that you are landing a 747.
  • Engage a single channel of the autopilot — light one of the buttons labeled "CMD." Point the heading indicator in the direction indicated to keep the plane straight and level.
  • Find the checklists in the side pocket of the pilot's and copilot's seat. If the plane is a 747-400, engage the Automatic Landing System (ALS). If it is not a 747-400, see below under "Landing Without ALS."


  • If you can't find the checklists, use these:

    1. Before Descent

      1. EO's system check completed.
      2. Pressurization set.
      3. All a/c packs on. Set the airfield altitude so the plane is depressurized on landing.
      4. Humidifier off.
      5. HSIs: Radio. Switch horizontal situation indicators to radio navigation mode.
      6. Auto brakes: set.

    2. Approach Checklist

      1. P.A. cabin call: "Cabin crew 15 minutes to landing."
      2. Cabin signs and exit lights: on.
      3. Ignition: on. This sets the engine igniters for landing.
      4. Fuel system: set for landing.
      5. Fuel heat: check/off
      6. QNH: Set. So the altimeters read the airfield altitude on touchdown.

    3. Landing Checklist

      1. Gear check: handle down, handle in, light green.
      2. Speedbrake: armed.
      3. Hydraulics: checked.
      4. Landing flap: set at 25 degrees.
      5. SCCM's report: received. The cabins are secure for landing.
      6. Find the Jeppeson charts. Locate the radio frequency.
      7. Find the flight management system's buttons on the glareshield marked LNAV and VNAV.
      8. Put the Jeppeson map on a 100 mile scale using the EFIS control panel on the front panel. You'll get a yellow FMC message on the middle screen when it's time to land.
      9. On the control display unit between the pilots' seats, twist the knob until the little numbers go down to 100 ft. above field elevation in the Jeppeson notebook.
      10. Get the aircraft set to land: press the LOC and G/S buttons on the glareshield. All three CMD lights will go on, and the system will automatically tune to the right ILS frequency.
      11. 1Turn on the autobrakes when the plane starts descending.

      12. Landing Without ALS

      13. Retard the throttle: four levers for four engines.
      14. Keep the nose up and descend to 20,000 feet. At 20,000 feet, bring the throttles back up.
      15. You have to drop below 250 knots when you descend to 9,000 feet. Keep the nose up and throttle down.
      16. When the tower brings you down to 5,000 feet. You need those flaps out so you can fly slow.
      17. Drop airspeed by setting flaps to 5, then 15, when you're down to 4,000 feet.
      18. As you start descending to the runway, you want flaps 20, then 30. Keep them there.
      19. When you reach 50 feet or so, the radar altimeter will start talking.
      20. When it says, "30," bring the throttle back to idle.
      21. At 10 feet, raise the nose to slow down.
      22. Lower the nose, reverse throttles, and apply the brakes.

    How to Make a Full Auto Book Scanner

    After the invention of hyperpaper, I began to scan my books. Soon I found out that what I expected was true -- It was awesomely BOREING! If this drudgery were to be automated!

    Scanning a book involves picking up the book from the scanner carefully so that you won't change the current pages, and turning pages precisely. These activities are as easy as breakfast for human beings. However, our sophisticated biomachienery owe a lot to the Evolution. Without its support, the activities are far too difficult fora robot.

    California Bans Texting While Driving

    I know some people might be upset over the ban on texting while driving law but, for the most part, it is a good idea to keep drivers attention on the road. Do you think it is a good law? Makes you wonder why only 7 states have banned texting while driving, doesn’t it?


    California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a law making it illegal to read or send text messages while driving in California. The bill imposes a 20 dollar fine for a first offence and 50 dollars for repeat offenders using any electronic devices to read or send messages, starting next year.

    Original Apple Macintosh User Manual

    It’s been an intriguing read. It’s a remarkably handsome manual, beautifully typeset, which, considering par for the course at the time was probably Courier with few illustrations, is saying something.

    Also, even back in 1984, there was no definite article. You get phrases like “With Macintosh, you’re in charge.” No “the”s or “a”s.

    Rich Russian Tries to buy U.S. Bomber at Air Show

    A wealthy Russian tried to buy a U.S. B-52 bomber from a group of shocked American pilots at an air show near Moscow, a Russian newspaper reported on Friday.

    The unidentified Russian, wearing sunglasses and surrounded by bodyguards, approached the U.S. delegation and asked to buy the bomber, the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper said.

    An astounded member of the U.S. delegation said the bomber was not for sale but that it would cost at least $500 million (249.5 million pounds) if it were to be sold on the spot.

    The 100 Top Brands Worldwide 2008

    Although the list of Top 100 Brands is chock full of big name retail brands like Coca-Cola (#1) and Kentucky Fried Chicken (#64), the tech sector didn't do too bad either. Companies such as Microsoft (#3), Intel (#7), Google (#10), HP (#12) and Cisco Systems (#17) literally dominated the top 20 spots.

    When ranking the value of the Best Global Brands, Interbrand evaluates brand value in the same way any other corporate asset is valued -- on the basis of how much it is likely to earn for the company in the future. Interbrand uses a combination of analysts’ projections, company financial documents, and its own qualitative and quantitative analysis to arrive at a net present value of those earnings. The brand values are based on data collected during the 12 months prior to June 30, 2008.

    I think the 20 year old kid that hacked into the e-mail account (if you can even call it a hack) of one of the presidential candidates is regretting what he did, especially considering that he is the son of a politician. Authorities are questioning the kid now.

    According to reports in Knoxville's Tennessean, Democrat State Representative Mike Kernell admitted that his son, David Kernell is being questioned by authorities in connection with the crime. The Secret Service and the FBI launched an official investigation on September 17. Kernell, 20, is a student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Rep. Kernell refused to disclose any further information about his son, including his whereabouts.

    Bill Gates Invests in Algae Fuel

    I’m not sure which is more newsworthy, the fact that Bill Gates has invested in algae fuel technology or the fact that you can actually get 91 octane fuel from algae in the first place! I wonder what the exhaust from algae fuel smells like. Ewww.

    The lowly algae is the renewable fuel industry's great green hope. Because algae is rich in oil and can grow in a wide range of conditions, many companies are betting that it can create fuels or other chemicals cheaper than existing feedstocks.

    The Army's Totally Serious Mind-Control Project

    Soldiers barking orders at each other is so 20th Century. That's why the U.S. Army has just awarded a $4 million contract to begin developing "thought helmets" that would harness silent brain waves for secure communication among troops. Ultimately, the Army hopes the project will "lead to direct mental control of military systems by thought alone."

    Nintendo Makes $1.6 Million Per Employee

    Here is an interesting little factoid, Nintendo makes $1.6 million per employee. Wow. Kinda makes you wonder if employees actually know that….time to put in for a raise.

    According to calculations by the Financial Times, the average employee at Japanese video games maker Nintendo is on track to earn more for their company this year than the average Goldman Sachs employee did in 2007, the investment bank’s best ever year. Nintendo also makes more per employee than internet group Google.

    Large Hadron Collider Hacked

    Can someone please explain to me why ANY computer connected to the Hadron Collider project (or anything else of this magnitude) was accessible via the internet in the first place? Seriously.

    The hackers were stopped before they could access the Collider's central computer system, but were described by the Telegraph as being "one step away" from full control of the CMS. They deleted one as-yet publicly unidentified file -- the hacker equivalent, perhaps, of counting coup.

    Bad night at the Museum

    This is funny and painful to watch at the same time, but it’s a lot funnier than it is painful. This South-African thief decided that the best place for him to rob would be a museum, and without any careful planning picked its lock and went in. That’s when things started going terribly wrong, the alarm went off, he panicked and decided to make a run for it.

    He climbed a tree in the museum yard and tried to jump over the spiked fence. But as always, karma comes back and bites you in the arse…or impales you, in this case. His jump wasn’t as good as he hoped and a metal spiked penetrated his…well, you know.

    Aurora Australis: Southern lights

    Auroras are natural colored light displays in the sky, usually observed at night, particularly in the polar zone. They typically occur in the ionosphere. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis, named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas.

    It often appears as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the sun was rising from an unusual direction. The aurora borealis is also called the northern polar lights, as it is only visible in the North sky from the Northern Hemisphere. The aurora borealis most often occurs from September to October and from March to April. The Cree call this phenomenon the Dance of the Spirits.

    Mona Lisa Drawn with Paintball Guns

    In a demonstration at Nvidia's NVISION show, the Mythbusters used paintball guns to illustrate the difference between current CPUs and future GPUs. The CPU's stand in was a single paintball gun that repositioned itself after every shot in order create a picture. But the GPU was represented by an 1,100 barrel gun, which paints the entire Mona Lisa in a single blast.

    You can watch the first one if you want, but I'd just skip to about 1:30, when they unveil the real nasty mother. And don't miss the last 10 seconds of the clip, because they replay the shot in slow motion, and it's crazy.

    Dan Tague Money Prints

    The appeal and power of money are the issues at the core of this series. In a capitalist society cash rules everything. Society teaches us that you can buy love, happiness, and status through possessions.

    You can even right wrongs by taking away a bit of someone’s happiness through fines and lawsuits. Politicians buy votes through claims of lowering taxes, in other words letting us hold on to a little more of status… upper, lower, upper-lower class. Income tax, sales tax, and property tax all fund the war on terror, war on drugs, war on poverty, war on morality, etcetera. In fact our consumer pursuit of happiness is the cause and solution for all of these wars

    It is astonishing how many parts are in a vehicle. In my view, it represents an ideal example of what the human mind can accomplish. We take it for granted that each and every component, from a gasket to a piston must be, and is, made by human hands, but more importantly, are manufactured to standards that are sometimes difficult to comprehend.

    As if this was not impressive enough, every single one of these pieces must fit together with very sensitive standards, and stay together in ways we simply lose sight of.

    In order to facilitate the commercialization process, Professor Sankai and others formed Cyberdyne Inc. in 2004. In October 2008, the company plans to move into a factory currently under construction that will allow them to manufacture up to 500 suits a year.

    The Relative Price Of Things

    People have been saying that the new industrial grade swimsuits like the LZR Racer are worth their weight in gold. As you can see, this is clearly inaccurate. But such a suit is worth its weight in marijuana or industrial diamonds.

    At the high end of this graph is gold (the only thing worth exactly its own weight in gold!), right next to the cost of launching a pound of stuff to low earth orbit on the ISS. Putting that into perspective here: You might as well build your whole spaceship out of $20 bills-- it still would cost less than putting it up there. It could almost be made of solid gold for that price.

    "As is the case with all of my game adaptations, I'd rather not make the movie than make a poor adaptation," Faye told Kotaku. He added, "I'm working at establishing a Duke film scenario that will compel a studio to finance a feature version. Certainly, there's a large audience that knows and loves this character."

Made by iRobot, a company founded by roboticists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and renowned for their tactical robots used in U.S. military reconnaissance missions, the robot is controlled by a 100'-range handheld remote.

    After it is placed in a gutter, the robot begins to clean at the touch of a button, rotating its powerful auger at 500 rpm while the durable rubber and plastic blades dislodge and remove stubborn detritus; polypropylene brushes finish the process by wiping the gutter clean.

    Google Brings Old Newspapers Online

    Google is expanding efforts to put old newspapers online and make them searchable. The project launched with “millions of articles” and will share AdSense revenue with publishers. And you laughed when we said Google will eventually be able to search everything from the internet to your sock drawer.

    The effort uses scanning technology leveraged in Google Book Search, which enables Web viewers to read books online as if they were still in their original paper form. The initiative is intended to "bring old newspapers online and make them searchable and make them discoverable," said Marissa Mayer, Google vice president of products and search, at the TechCrunch50 2008 conference in San Francisco.

    Apple has finally admitted that a British man who left school at 15 is the inventor behind the iPod. Kane Kramer, 52, came up with the technology that drives the digital music player nearly 30 years ago but has still not seen a penny from his invention.

    Sept. 8, 1966: Liftoff for the Starship Enterprise

    Given the cultural impact and enormous franchise spawned by the original Star Trek series, it's hard to believe that the show lasted just three seasons -- 80 episodes -- and was canceled by NBC in 1969 because of low ratings.

    Hog Motor | Fully Working Desktop Stirling Engine

    This desktop Stirling engine is powered by the expansion and compression of air when heated and cooled, and uses the same simple yet elegant dynamics as the stirling engines from the Industrial Revolution.

    Invented in 1816 by the Reverend Dr. Stirling to create a safer, more efficient alternative to steam engine boilers, the Stirling engine is still taught in mechanical engineering courses at leading universities to demonstrate the high efficiency, quiet operation, and heat utilization of closed cycle regenerative heat engines.

    Click for more information...

    Handmade in Germany, the unit has a solid brass body and a glass cylinder and piston that are precisley designed to minimize friction, eliminating the need for lubrication.

    The alcohol burner heats the glass tube, ca using the air inside to expand and push the horizontal piston towards the chamber. This movement displaces some of the warm air into the metal chamber where it continues to expand, forcing the vertical piston upward.

    The pistons are connected to the flywheel with a system of levers and pulleys, causing the flywheel to spin up to 5,000 RPM and enabling the sequence to repeat until the flame is put out.

    Sony Shares Hit 3yr Low After Vaio Laptop Recall

    Blurred Out: 51 Things You Can't See on Google Maps

    Depending on which feature you use, Google Maps offers a satellite view or a street-level view of tons of locations around the world. You can look up landmarks like the Pyramids of Egypt or the Great Wall of China, as well as more personal places, like your ex’s house.

    But for all of the places that Google Maps allows you to see, there are plenty of places that are off-limits. Whether it’s due to government restrictions, personal-privacy lawsuits or mistakes, Google Maps has slapped a "Prohibited" sign on the following 51 places.

    The White House: Google Maps' images of the White House show a digitally erased version of the roof in order to obscure the air-defense and security assets that are in place.

    The U.S. Capitol: The U.S. Capitol has been fuzzy ever since Google Maps launched. Current versions of Google Maps and Google Earth show these sites uncensored, though with old pictures.

    Dick Cheney's House: The Vice President's digs at Number One Observatory Circle are obscured through pixelation in Google Earth and Google Maps at the behest of the U.S. government. However, high-resolution photos and aerial surveys of the property are readily available on other Web sites.

    Soesterberg Air Base, in the Netherlands: This Dutch air-force base and former F-15 base for the U.S. Air Force during the Cold War can't be seen via Google Maps.

    Artist Hangs Herself from Hooks in Protest

    Alice Newstead took the drastic action in protest at the practice of finning – where sharks are impaled on hooks, before their fins are sliced off to harvest meat for shark fin soup. The sharks are then thrown back into the ocean still alive.

    A crowd gathered outside the Lush cosmetics shop in London's Regent's Street to see the 26-year-old impaled by hooks in her back and gasped as blood trickled down her back.

    Dell Selling Factories To Cut Costs

    The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Dell is selling factories around the world in an effort to cut costs. According to “sources” Dell plans to sell most, if not all, its plants over the next 18 months and contract out the labor on its PCs.

    The plan is the latest sign of changes in the global PC business, and the increasing pressure on Dell to improve its profitability. The Round Rock, Texas, company last week reported disappointing quarterly profit that helped send shares down more than 18%, and has been trying to reduce expenses since early last year. Dell, which led the industry in lean manufacturing approaches and build-to-order PC manufacturing, now finds itself lagging rivals in wringing the most savings by outsourcing operations to production partners.

    Mercedes-Benz World Record Artificial Tornado

    The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany is now home to more than just automobiles. The museum has been recognized by the Guinness Book of Records for creating the "strongest artificially generated tornado in the world."

    The 34.4 meter high (that is 37.2 yards to those metrically challenged) vortex was not designed as an attraction, but to channel smoke out of the building in the event of a fire. The architecture wonderment that is the museum did not make use of any fire doors in the design (surely they would get in the way of the architect's vision).

    In order to meet regulations, the building engineers had to determine a way to keep smoke from spreading beyond the fire level, the tornado is the resulting solution.

    Home of the World's Most Expensive Wallpaper

    Started in 1931 in Big Pine Key, FL as a general store, bait and tackle shop. In 1936 the store added a room and started serving food and beer. In the 40's the store added a Brothel but it soon closed because "the fisherman were better looking than the girls". In the 70's and 80's the Keys hit their prime because of Jimmy Buffet popularity.

    With that came people and their money (lots of funny money flowing through the keys back then) and that money started being put on the walls, dollar bill by dollar bill. Thirty years have gone by and the results are the pictures you see below. They estimate there is over $750,000 in singles hanging on the walls and from the ceiling.

    How to build your own Sputnik Satellite

    In 1957 the Sputnik 1 satellite was seen as a technological marvel, the result of many years work by some of the Soviet Union's most talented engineers and scientists. But by today's standards, was it really such a big deal? In 2007, how hard would it be to build a fully working Sputnik in the comfort of your own living room?

    In simple terms, the Sputnik satellite was a metal sphere almost 2ft (61cm) in diameter, containing a radio transmitter. It also had a battery; equipment to measure temperature; barometric and temperature activated switches; and a fan to stop it getting too hot.

    Richland County Sheriff Lott's New Toy

    The Richland County, South Carolina Sheriff's Department (that's them below) just obtained an armored personnel carrier, complete with a belt-fed, .50-cal turreted machine gun. Sheriff Leon Lott has charmingly named the vehicle "The Peacemaker," and insists that using a caliber of ammunition that even the U.S. military is reluctant to use against human targets (it's generally reserved for use against armored vehicles) will "save lives."

    Can we call this overkill, yet? Is there any weapon people like Sheriff Lott would consider inappropriate for use against American citizens?

    Don LaFontaine Voiceover Guy dies at 68

    Don LaFontaine, the voiceover king whose “In a world …” phrase on movie trailers was much copied — and much parodied — has died, according to media reports. He was 68.

    LaFontaine died Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, according to ETOnline, “Entertainment Tonight’s” Web site. He died from complications from pneumothorax, a collapsed lung that causes air to build in the pleural cavity, his agent, Vanessa Gilbert, told “ET.”

    LaFontaine, who was born in Duluth, Minnesota, began as a voice actor in the mid-1960s while working as a recording engineer, according to his Web site. His strong, slightly gravelly voice was featured on trailers for thousands of films, including “The Godfather,” “Fatal Attraction” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.” For a time in the late ’70s, LaFontaine was the official voice of Paramount Pictures.

    Download | New Google Chrome Web Browser

    Since we spend so much time online, we began seriously thinking about what kind of browser could exist if you started from scratch and built on the best elements out there. We realized that the web had evolved from mainly simple text pages to rich, interactive applications and that we needed to completely rethink the browser. What we really needed was not just a browser, but also a modern platform for web pages and applications, and that's what we set out to build.

    So today we're releasing the beta version of a new open source browser: Google Chrome.

    On the surface, we designed a browser window that is streamlined and simple. To most people, it isn't the browser that matters. It's only a tool to run the important stuff - the pages, sites and applications that make up the web. Like the classic Google homepage, Google Chrome is clean and fast. It gets out of your way and gets you where you want to go.

    MySpace CoFounder was 80’s Hacker

    Tom Anderson, cofounder of MySpace and everyone’s first friend when a MySpace account is initially created, was a hacker in the 80’s and broke into Chase Manhattan Bank’s system. His group’s activity eventually prompted one of CA’s largest FBI raids ever. Funny stuff.

    In 1985, when he was fourteen and in high school in Escondido, California, Anderson was subject to one of the largest FBI raids in California history after hacking into a Chase Manhattan Bank computer system and subsequently showing his friends how to do it. He was never arrested because he was a minor, but the FBI confiscated all of his computer equipment. Anderson used the hacker name “Lord Flathead.”
