Default CAT IIIc Landing

Here is what it looks like landing with zero visibility. Flight crew and aircraft must be certified to conduct Catagory 3 approaches. Autoland required.

Nuttin' new for me

Though our 320 callouts only have 2500, 1000, and 50-10 in 10 foot increments. But our E190 fleet has HUDs...now THOSE are nice to have in conditions like that.

I bet those HUD'* are great to have on the flight deck. Would like to see them in action myself.
