Yep, we were doing a lot of partial panel and approaches. I was flying with an former Navy pilot (F-16s) and we were practicing emergency ILS approaches. This was the training he was taught and later taught while he was in the navy. The scenario was: You've had your head up your butt and you're now low on fuel. There are no VFR conditions for 500 miles and everywhere within forever is below ILS minimums. So, you're going to practice shooting an approach and landing blind. He said he wouldn't let me ruin the airplane. As we get closer to the flare point, if things weren't going as planned, he would tell me i'm "visual" and i can look up and land, or he would take over and land in the flare. We did that and he didn't even have to touch the controls. He thought i was cheating (peeking through the foggles), which i wasn't. So we did it again at BUF (23) and i greased another as he watched me like a hawk! We were rolling out and i asked, "Am i visual?" He laughed the whole way home (9G3). Boy that was fun.
PS i liked the "welcome back" from the IAG controller.
