The circling approach should be flown with landing gear down, flaps 15 and at the flaps 15 maneuvering speed. Maintain MCP altitude or MDA(H) using ALT HOLD mode and use HDG SEL for the maneuvering portion of the circling approach. If circling from an ILS approach, fly the ILS in VOR/LOC and VNAV or V/S modes. Use of the APP mode for descent to a circlng approach is not recommended for several reasons:

- The AFDS does not level off at MCP altitude

- Exiting the APP mode requires initiating go-around or disconnecting the autopilot and turning off the flight directors

If a missed approach is requied at any time while circling, make a climbing turn in the shortest direction towards the landing runway. This may result in a turn greater than 180 degrees to intercept the missed approach course. Continue the turn untill established on an intercept heading to the missed approach course corresponding to the instrument approach procedure just flown. Maintain the missed approach flap setting until close-in maneuvering is completed.
