Re: [Sluggo_Monster] Cooper Coda

In reply to:
a very erratic flight-path on into Northern California. That is, if we can believe the plotted track.

.

That erratic path is odd. I am not a licensed pilot but when I worked for an avionics company I actually got a fair amount of cockpit jump seat time in large jet airliners (L1011s, 747s and DC 10s). It seemed to me that they were on autopilot almost all the time other than takeoff and landing. Turns were cranked into a heading selector. The erratic flight path just seems odd. Any pilots care to comment?
