New Arizona, Il Duce/Warlord
Fly by wire. Having a trim switch on a FBW jet is like having a hand crank on a calculator. Gives you the impression of being needed.Just watched the first vid (the SwissAir one). IMO, doesn't look that fun at all. Seems the airplane was doing all the flying. What was that, Auto-Trim? I guess the pilots got to hold and push TBW throttle levers and pretend they were connected to something other than a computer, but even that imitation of control was ordered by a computer voice. Hmmm. Very, Borg-ish; Very unnerving.
