Curious--any 747 pilots out there--if an asymmetrical reverser condition on landing, what is the standard recovery procedure? Is it to mirror the asymmetry by throttling only two engines, or by asymettrical throttling? A pilot friend reminds me that asymmetrical thrust on takeoff and landing is absolutely deadly. I didn't know the lost AF747 was possibly a result of thrust asymmetry; it sounds a lot more serious than earlier descriptions on the net as a mere overrun.
