Lufthansa Boeing 747-400 parking at Toronto Pearson’s E75 gate
#didyouknowthat The Advanced Visual Docking Guidance Systems (A-VDGS) gives information to a pilot attempting to park at an airport stand. An infrared, high definition camera is scanning the entire area for possible objects, affecting the safety of the aircraft. The usual distance is between 10 to 50 meters. The A-VGDS is equipped with a low visibility function allowing aircraft to park in extremely poor visibility conditions. This allows them to remain clear of obstructions and ensures that jetways can reach the aircraft. - 8 days ago
