That's exactly what i was thinking!English said:Tell Cessna that.
FoxBravo said:I've always wondered if they are thrust levers......why do we have an auto throttle system? Can't Boeing make up their mind either?
HA! I found the same "decal" placard on the 727 throttle quadrant today "<---- INCREASE THRUST". I hadn't noticed it before.TonyC said:On a related note... I recall being slightly amused when I first noticed the decal placard on the Throttle quadrant (see there, another throttle) of the KC/EC/RC-135s. There alongside the other pertinent markings was an arrow pointing toward the nose of the airplane labeled "Increase Thrust." (In fact, there may have been two, one on each side.) I often wondered who could have become confused, and how they might have become confused about which way to push the levers, whatever they called 'em, to increase thrust.
Boeing calls 'em Throttles, at least they did when I was flying last night.
