Boeing 767 Autolands in Low Vis

Actual ILS Category 3B autoland at Milan (MXP) and low visibility taxi - B767. Jump into it at the 35 second mark and stop at about the 2:33 second mark. A Boeing 767 demonstrates the highest level of automated instrument landing ("Category III Instrument Landing System--ILS") in a ground fog so dense, it seems hard to see more than about 50 feet beyond the end of the airplane's nose. The cloud/fog seems all enveloping; if you do watch most of the entire thing, a 747 suddenly looms out of the fog once they are taxing and the fog is so dense, you can't see the entire airplane at the same time...
