This is passing the 1.9DME fix. While crossing over the ridge line there as a "100" call and the RA got as low as "80". This picture is showing the ground going away again.

Maybe someone with more knowledge can explain why there was not a "Terrain" or "Pull Up" call from the FMC or would one have been expected on a real-world aircraft?

This is just a toy simulation, but very interesting.

It is FSX with the PMDG B737-800. I have rebuilt the default FSX scenery using ADE with a Google Map overlay. It took me about six hours to get the airport repositioned, the LOC positioned correctly, and the trees in place. With Google maps it is fairly easy to get generic objects in the correct position. The scenery is about a 1/3 finished, it just takes time. :)

This picture is about .3 miles from IMTOY at the MDA which is why the PAPI is one dot low. Still using LNAV/VNAV.
