Mmmmmmmm, just something to help enlighten me here, was that kinda written in jest or might you possibly be confusing Herb and Capt. Eddie Rickedtyback at Eastern?

Not in jest. :)

I played a lot of golf with one of the early hires and he told me they hand flew everything, no A/P and no A/T.

I believe he also told me the original CP was from AAL.

Southwest can't fly Cat II on autopilot (they're not authorized to fly Cat III). They hand fly them on the HUD.

Cap'n Randy, Sir:

<<<<<< just something to help enlighten me here, was that kinda written in jest or might you possibly be confusing Herb and Capt. Eddie Rickityback at Eastern? >>>>>>

It is definite that Rickityback was a pax aboard a company aircraft that crashed near ATL and also that the pilots had been on autopilot, which Rickityback did not like. He was hurt in the crash.

OTOH--I read that story in a book that Rickityback wrote!

We do the opposite on our 737s. No HUD. Anything below CAT I is an autoland. Good down to fail-passive CAT III with a 50' DH and 600/600/300 RVRs.

Herb would not approve. He didn't even update the FMSs until about 2008 or so.
