I’m sitting here at the airport waiting on my flight and I’ve always wondered: how do airline pilots park those big birds (737s and above in size. I can understand smaller regional jets where you’re closer to the ground with better line of sight) right on the line each time? Especially for 747/A380 pilots, where you guys are basically three stories off the ground!
Line of sight below them would be tricky I’d think. Is there a camera below the nose gear or a computer guidance system for ground ops? Or is it literally just practice and skill at driving the plane while taxiing on the ground to get that perfect precision while taxiing to/from the runway and to the gate?
