that is correct. It was a 757, still 5 miles tho.
at a min
i dont like to run them that close
we get cessnas following B767/H's....i try to get at least 8 between them on final....dont want any squeeeze plays of 6.5 or anything!
When I first became an ATC'er 10 miles was required behind a Jumbo to any non heavy. A Jumbo was a 747, L-1011, DC10 or C5.
In IMC conditions I had a Flying Tigers 747 at 10 mile final and a ANG F-4 at 30 mile final. It didn't work.
