Where are the brakes actually?

Mark023 Guest

Hello, I have the PMDG 747 and often I watch all the controls moving in the cockpit, like rudder peddals, nose wheel steering, yoke and so on. But when I slam the brake I don't see anything moving.
So what do jet pilot push or pull to engage brakes? I don't mean reverser, I know where they are.

The brakes are applied by pushing on the tops of the rudder pedal, they work independently and are located only on the main landing gear wheels. There is also a hand operated parking brake.

Thanks for your reply, so if I understand correctly kicking in the pedal in it's upright position steers the rudder and tipping it over applies brakes?

Ah I see, so when using the rudder you only push the rod the pedal is connected too.
