Engineering / Throttle lever buttons
« on: February 15, 2017, 09:45:27 PM »
I sat in the pilot seat of the Avro Vulcan (cockpit experience) at the Avro Heritage Museum, Woodford last weekend (home of XM603). As a current commercial pilot I was fascinated and a little awed. However, it was only when looking at the photograph I took at the time (attached) that I became intrigued as to what the 'pinch' buttons on each side of throttles 1 and 4 actually did (as also the function of the buttons on the end of each throttle lever)?
I asked so many questions to the volunteer showing us the entire flight deck that I missed asking.....
Can anyone enlighten me please??
