green - below amber or red - conflict


recall the indications when deviating from a MCP selected altitude

when deviating by more than 200 feet from a selected alt, a momentary tone sounds and the current alt box turns amber and begins to flash. The amber flashing continues until altitude deviation is less than 200 feet or a new alt is selected.

powered by hydraulic B anti skid and auto available


alternate brake system

powered by hydraulic A if B fails or is low A kicks in and supplies pressure
Anti skid and auto are avail


brake accumulator

pressurized by system B if both A and B are lost, trapped hydraulic pressure can provide several applications - no auto brakes


Autobrake system -

uses hyd B pressure to provide max deceleration for reject TO and normal landing anti skid is functional

Either the pump itself or the fluid used to lubricate the corresponding electric pump has overheated.


Explain the meaning of a hydraulic pump low pressure indication

output pressure of the associated pump is low


explain how fuel is supplied to the engines with all pumps operating

center tank pumps produce higher pressure than main tank pumps. thus both engines are pressure fed from the center tank until the center tank quanity decreases to near zero. thereafter each engine is normally pressured from its respective main wing tank. If pump pressure is low engine can get fuel from a suction feed line that bypasses the pumps.
