I fly this 727-from-hell often from Heathrow-Sofia-Heathrow...
On approach at Sofia I often experience massive thrust changes
sometimes resulting negative-G.... it is scary!!!

Is this because of a lack of autothrottle coupled to the ILS resulting
in manual changes during the approach... these changes only occur
after the a/c is established...
