  1. The Airbus Beluga might be the weirdest plane in the world. There are just six Belugas worldwide and all of them operate for the Airbus company and transport parts of new planes between the airbus factories in France, the UK, spain and germany. Soon they will be replaced by the new Airbus A330 Beluga XL. After that Airbus has plans to sell the A300 Belugas to special cargo operators like Volga Dnepr. We might see these special Airbus planes everywhere in the world in the near future. All of these clips were filmed during my 7 hour visit at Hamburg Finkenwerder and I found a great position behind the runway. The Airbus Beluga looks even more stunning when you are able to film it in a head - on perspective. #Airbus #Beluga #Landing Thanks for watching, new videos every tuesday and friday.SOURCE
  2. The Boeing 777 (Triple Seven) is a long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliner developed and manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It is the world's largest twinjet and has a typical seating capacity of 314 to 396 passengers, with a range of 5,240 to 8,555 nautical miles (9,704 to 15,844 km). Commonly referred to as the "Triple Seven", its distinguishing features include the large–diameter turbofan engines, long raked wings, six wheels on each main landing gear, fully circular fuselage cross-section, and a blade-shaped tail cone. Developed in consultation with eight major airlines, the 777 was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and bridge the capacity difference between Boeing's 767 and 747. As Boeing's first fly-by-wire airliner, it has computer-mediated controls. It was also the first commercial aircraft to be designed entirely with computer-aided design. The 777 is produced in two fuselage lengths as of 2018. The original 777-200 variant entered commercial service in 1995, followed by the extended-range 777-200ER in 1997. The stretched 777-300, which is 33.25 ft (10.1 m) longer, followed in 1998. The initial 777-200, extended-range -200ER, and -300 versions are equipped with General Electric GE90, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, or Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines. They have since been collectively referred to as 777 Classics. The extended-range 777-300ER and ultra long-range 777-200LR variants entered service in 2004 and 2006 respectively, while the 777F, a freighter version, debuted in February 2009; these second-generation variants all feature high-output GE90 engines and extended raked wingtips. The 777-200LR is one of the world's longest-range airliners, able to fly more than halfway around the globe and holds the record for the longest distance flown non-stop by a commercial aircraft. In November 2013, Boeing announced the development of the third-generation of the 777, the 777X, consisting of the 777-8 and 777-9 variants. The 777X features composite folding wings and GE9X engines plus further technologies developed for the Boeing 787, and is scheduled to enter service by 2020. Air New Zealand Limited is the flag carrier airline of New Zealand. Based in Auckland, the airline operates scheduled passenger flights to 20 domestic and 31 international destinations in 19 countries around the Pacific Rim and the United Kingdom.[6] The airline has been a member of the Star Alliance since 1999. Air New Zealand originated in 1940 as Tasman Empire Airways Limited (TEAL), a company operating trans-Tasman flights between New Zealand and Australia. TEAL became wholly owned by the New Zealand government in 1965, whereupon it was renamed Air New Zealand. The airline served international routes until 1978, when the government merged it and the domestic New Zealand National Airways Corporation (NAC) into a single airline under the Air New Zealand name. Air New Zealand was privatised in 1989, but returned to majority government ownership in 2001 after near bankruptcy due to a failed tie up with Australian carrier Ansett Australia. In the 2017 financial year to June, Air New Zealand carried 15.95 million passengers. Air New Zealand's route network focuses on Australasia and the South Pacific, with long-haul services to eastern Asia, the Americas and the United Kingdom. It was the last airline to circumnavigate the world with flights to Heathrow via both Los Angeles and via Hong Kong. The latter ended in March 2013 when Air New Zealand stopped Hong Kong – London flights, in favour of a codeshare agreement with Cathay Pacific. The airline's main hub is Auckland Airport, located near Mangere in the southern part of the Auckland urban area. Air New Zealand is headquartered in a building called "The Hub", located 20 km (12 mi) from Auckland Airport, in Auckland's Wynyard Quarter. Air New Zealand currently operates a fleet of Airbus A320, Airbus A320neo family, Boeing 777 and Boeing 787 aircraft. Air New Zealand's regional subsidiaries, Air Nelson and Mount Cook Airline, operate additional domestic services using turboprop aircraft. Air New Zealand was awarded Airline of the Year in 2010 and 2012 by the Air Transport World Global Airline Awards. In 2014, Air New Zealand was ranked the safest airline in the world by JACDEC.SOURCE
  3. My journey started several years ago when I pushed myself to get back into flight simulation. I have always loved flying online and in real life, but never got that serious with it. I set out to get into military sims and bought the A10 Thrustmaster controllers and DCS. This was fun and still is, but its not realistic as far as what I could or can accomplish at my age. I have always wanted to be able to fly GA and commercial aircraft. I happened to just get lucky one day while watching a streamer on twitch switch from a FPS game to going flying. Flying, really? You can do this on twitch? I had no idea. I had no idea about what I was about to get into. Belnyz was the guy. He flew out of Sedona which I had visited just about 6 months prior. I was amazed at what I saw. Flight simulation has really come a long way. I started watching more and more on twitch and stumbled on Edson from theSkyLounge one late night for me. I was instantly hooked on his stream and his service. I loved the visuals and the music combined with the simulator. Sure I watch guys like Chewy and Chilly now as well for the hardcore simulation flights or long hauls, but sometimes I love to just get immersed with the sights and sounds of a good OMGEdson stream. It brings out the beauty of flying and to me, that’s what its all about. It’s about lining up that runway at approach altitude with the right music going with a nice sunset. Nothing is more beautiful. After years of investing in hardware, software, and blowing every dollar I could on simulation for both P3D and Xplane 11, I decided I wanted to take it to the next level and work towards a possible career change into the airline industry. At my age, that may not make much sense, and of course I am in no rush to do that. I would like it as a backup as the industries I am in continually shift jobs outside of the US which is where I live. I need a backup plan for something I really love. It is now January 2019. I make 2 resolutions this year. The first is to work hard at getting back into shape. I used to be in pretty good shape. I raced motorcycles and exercised daily. I always ran a 5k a day back then. I missed that. So the work starts… My other resolution was to actually get my PPL before I turn 50. Yes 50. Ugh! It’s coming this year and I am working hard to make that a reality. I decided to go do my training at a Class D airport near Austin in Georgetown. I have friends who fly out of Georgetown as well as some who have done their training there. It just made sense to go to a towered airport, but not a busy one like KAUS. Sure I will fly into KAUS soon, but I did not want my time in the plane eaten up by traffic and ATC. I want real hours in the plane and I can get the class C airspace down while doing this. Tuesday, January 8th, I started my flight school at Pilot Choice Aviation, the same place that some friends of mine did their training. Beth, the owner has created a great service and business for those of us that love aviation. I completed the 6 weeks of flight school all while getting up into the air whenever possible. The weather has cancelled many of my flights this winter, but I have still been able to squeeze out 10 flights with a total of 12.5 hours of flight time. Flight 1 [Jan 6th] : My discovery flight was with Jarrett. He had me takeoff and land the plane with his help. I think he felt comfortable with my sim skills I had picked up in the simulator. I was instantly hooked and signed up for flight school that night. 0.5 hours flown : Total 0.5 hours Flight 2 [Jan 13th] : My flight school instructor, Austin, took me up for my first training. We spent some time on the ground going over pre-flight checks as Jarrett did with me on the 6th. We worked on fundamentals and did a few steep turns. 0.8 hours : Total 1.3 hours Flight 3 [Jan 20th] : I am back with Jarrett from here on out. Austin was busy with many students and it only made sense to stick with one CFI. Jarrett was my initial contact and I was happy to fly with him. We worked on slow flight, power on and power off stalls. 1.3 hours flown : Total 2.6 hours Flight 4 [Jan 24th] : We worked on steep turns, power on and power off stalls. The first time Jarrett demonstrated a steep turn from left to right, I thought I was going to be sick. I was not expecting it. However I put it out of my mind and was able to replicate what he did 3 times in the plane. I was pretty excited but a little nervous that I might get sick which has never happened to me in the air. I can say now, that was just a worry. I have not felt that since and I am very excited to fly every time I head to KGTU. 1.3 hours flown : Total 3.9 hours Flight 5 [Feb 4th – 1.4 hours] : On this flight we worked on ground references and emergency procedures. As Jarrett demonstrated landing on a farm, I almost thought we were going to. We got about 500 feet above it before he aborted. I was shocked with did not get shot at. The farmers out that way are used to it and I would hope that they would prefer a life saved than a little farm damage that money can fix… 1.4 hours flown: Total 5.3 hours Flight 6 [Feb 15th] : It’s been almost 2 weeks since the last flight due to bad weather. We decided to review ground references, emergency procedures, and traffic patterns around some fields. Ground references included turns around a point, S-Turns, and rectangular course work. 1.4 hours flown : Total 6.7 hours Flight 7 [Feb 18th] : We reviewed some of the traffic patterns with my stepped up GoPro system. I am now up to 3 of them in the plane. We did some emergency procedures and then headed back to KGTU to start some real pattern traffic work. I was able to get 4 takeoff and landings done. 1.5 hours flown : Total 8.2 hours Flight 8 [Feb 25th] : This flight was all about the traffic pattern at a towered airport, KGTU. We had a slight crosswind as well. We ended up doing about 10 touch and gos during the flight. 1.3 hours flown : Total 9.5 hours Flight 9 [Feb 27th] : I showed up ready to go, but my archer wasn’t. This was the first time in a new plane. We went from the 181 horse power archer to the 160 horse Warrior. Not a bad plane, but we were close to max weight with filling both wings up before departing. This was not a great flight for me. I felt a little stressed with the instruments different, different plane, and now we were going to a non-towered, shorter runway airport to do touch and gos. My CFI and I decided to end this flight sooner than later due to the takeoff characteristics that were kind of messing with me. I plan on getting back into that plane soon though to beat it. I won’t let it beat me. 1.3 hours flown : Total 10.8 hours Flight 10 [Mar 4th] : We have our archer back and headed back to Taylor, T74 for some uncontrolled pattern work. We had a couple of planes in the pattern with us at different times. This was pretty fun. I was on a high being back in my plane that was performing like a rocket ship at -1C that day. I felt great but made some simple bad calls on the radio as I got tongue tied a few times as well as making the cockpit not sterile at times during critical stages of flight. I think my overconfidence that day led me to that, and I know from my studies nothing should be discussed on takeoff and landings except important information as it pertains to the flight. I am glad I made that mistake though because it needed to be made. It’s something I will always think about on approach as it put our lives in danger. If something was to happen when my hand was not on the throttle discussing something that made no sense to talk about, our lives would be at stake. Yes, I am hard on myself. I expect the best out of myself and want to produce nothing but the best when I fly. 1.7 hours flown: Total 12.5 hours So my times are always on a 2 hour schedule. It takes time to preflight, setup the GoPros, taxi, fuel sometimes, and get off the ground due to traffic. The Hobbs meter in the plane is running from engine start until stop. This is what tracks your flight hours. Typically I am up pretty fast, but I have sat once on the run way for 30 minutes waiting. Its rare but would be more of a problem like that had I flown out of KAUS. This is why a class D towered makes the most sense to me as a student. More time in the skies and less on the ground. You are paying for it no matter where you are, so best to be up in the air. Some things we do before maneuvers: 1. Clearing turns. We look for traffic with a full 180 degree turn or two 90 degree turns in opposite directions. 2. GUMPS check. Gas on fullest tank, Under carriage is down, Mixture is on full rich, Fuel Pump is on, and Seatbelts are attached and harnessed. To get to solo, you need all the training that I have done and then maybe a little more. I am close. However, you need your medical as well as a student certificate. I passed my class 3 medical a little over a week ago and applied for my certificate with the FAA right after. On Tuesday I got notification that my certificate was approved. So now, the countdown is on to Solo. I am nervous about flying without Jarrett, however I know we both will know I am ready when he steps out of the plane. I plan on wearing one of the two flight sim expo shirts on my next several flights. They cut your shirt off after you land and put it on the wall in the airplane hangar. I want to represent our community that helped me get to where I am. I hope you guys follow my progress on YouTube and enjoy the videos. I have tried to make them as entertaining and raw as I can by adding cameras and getting as much conversation into them as we can. A couple of my flights, we had gear malfunctions. One went into a screen shot mode, so I threw that footage out and the other had a bad cable or disconnected cable from my headset to one of the cameras. Without our conversations in the plane and ATC, it was not worth posting. Every other video has been worth the effort to get online. I want to thank the theSkyLounge for their help and support. CanuckShaw for his work on my liveries to match what I fly in real life on a service called PilotEdge. Without those planes, some of the communication would not be as easy. Practice, practice, practice. PilotEdge is a great service for that. And lastly my family and job that both make this dream possible. Enjoy and I will be updating this post with future flights and pictures Until next time, Caderly [caderly_one] caderly@iflyga.net SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiUMyqmkXD6WbhPAAv7dhnA

  7. This Boeing 737 lost some fuel during its departure at Düsseldorf this week. Every airplane has fuel overflow vents but I have only filmed three planes losing fuel through the overflow vents within the past 15 years. It` s kinda rare to see this happen. These vents are quite important to make sure the pressure inside the fuel tanks doesn` t get too high. Especialy when the wings bend during takeoff it might happen that the fuel doesn` t have enaugh space anymore inside the wings. Too avoid high pressure inside the wings the fuel has a possibitly to leave the wings via the fuel overflow vents which is clearly visible in this video. I don` t know the destination of this Boeing 737 and I can` t tell you why the fuel tanks were filled near its limit. As far as I know the longest Boeing 737 flight of Tuijet from Düsseldorf is Sal (Cabo Verde) Thanks for watching, new videos every tuesday and friday.SOURCE
  8. Two cockpit flights in this first episode: 1) Bell 407 flight in and around Kiev 2) An-12 ferry from Valencia, Spain to Deauville, Normandie, France An AirClips.com team was granted exclusive access to witness a horse cargo flight in three episodes. This is the first of our resulting ULTIMATE COCKPIT MOVIES showing the Airline Headquarters in Kiev, a Bell 407 Heli ride with the airline owner to the An-12 Maintenance Base of Ukraine Air Alliance, and a full ferry flight from Spain to France with exclusive outboard- and cockpit cams. A later movie will show the racing horse transportation from Deauville, France to Lapperanta, Finland. The Antonov An-12 (NATO reporting name: Cub) is a four-engined turboprop transport aircraft designed in the Soviet Union. It is the military version of the Antonov An-10 and was made in many variants. The first prototype flew in December 1957. Over 900 had been built, in both military and civilian versions, before production finally ended in 1973. The An-12BP entered Soviet military service in 1959. In terms of configuration, size and capability, the aircraft is similar to the United States-built Lockheed C-130 Hercules. Military Soviet and former-Soviet examples have a defensive tail gun turret. In the 1960s China purchased several An-12 aircraft from the Soviet Union, along with a license to assemble the aircraft locally. However, due to the Sino-Soviet split, the Soviet Union withdrew its technical assistance. It was not until 1974 that the first Chinese-assembled An-12 had its maiden flight. The Xi'an Aircraft Company and Xi'an Aircraft Design Institute worked to reverse-engineer the An-12 for local production. In 1981, the Chinese copy version of the An-12, designated Y-8, entered production. Since then the Y-8 has become one of China's most popular military and civilian transport/cargo aircraft, with many variants produced and exported. A Tu-16/H-6 bomber navigator cockpit design was chosen for Y-8 instead of the original An-12 shorter navigator cockpit design, as the H-6 bomber had been in serial production for some time. Although the An-12 is no longer made in Russia or Ukraine, the Y-8 continues to be upgraded and produced in China. The latest Y8-F600 is a joint venture between Shaanxi Aircraft Company, Antonov Aeronautical Scientific-Technical Complex (ASTC), and Pratt & Whitney Canada. The Y8-F600 has a redesigned fuselage, western avionics, PW150B turboprop engines with an R-408 propeller system, and a two-crew glass cockpit. It is unknown whether the Shaanxi Y-8 remains in production, yet many believe it will remain in production for the foreseeable future. The here seen An-12BK has an increased 30-tonne (66,140 lb) payload, improved avionics suite, TG-16M APU and the widened cargo door of the An-12BP characterized the An-12BK, which was built exclusively for the VTA (Komandovaniye voyenno-transportnoy aviatsii), a major component of the Soviet Air Force. Ukraine Air Alliance is an airline based in Kiev, Ukraine. It operates cargo and passenger charters as well as services to Asia, Africa and Europe. Its main bases are Boryspil International Airport (KBP) and Zhulyany International Airport (IEV). The airline was established on 28 February 1992 and started operations in 1993. It registered with the Ukrainian authorities as a joint stock company and was one of the first private air enterprises in Ukraine to obtain international status through registration at ICAO. The airline has taken part in UN relief flights. The Ukraine Air Alliance fleet includes the following aircraft (at January 2015): 6 x AN-12 - Registration UR-CGV, UR-CGW, UR-CAJ, UR-CAK, UR-CZZ, UR-CAHSOURCE

  14. Dear All, Today, we’ve released the F-14 into early access after years of intensive development. We truly hope you’re enjoying it! We’re monitoring all of the forums, hoggit and e-mails and are moving quickly and assertively to correct any critical issues and mistakes. This module represents the culmination of exhaustive research and intensive development, where we attempted to push the boundaries of what was possible with a desktop flight simulation. The challenge and passion associated with this project ushed us to deliver the very best that our broad backgrounds and formal training allowed us. We pushed those boundaries, both because of Heatblur’s commitment to providing the highest quality product possible, and because the F-14A/B represented a passion project for many members of the team. We were and still are driven to get this project right! And today, we have the pleasure of announcing something even bigger, which will allow us to unlock our true potential, and to raise the bar even higher. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been working on taking the next big step forward for our company and team. We’ve progressed discussions with a group that will be our new partners for the continued development of Heatblur. We’ve found our interests to be very much aligned and thus, Heatblur Simulations is becoming a part of MetaSimulations, which is a part of the Meta Aerospace group. Together with Meta, we will be able to combine the resources and expertise of a real world aerospace operator with our passion, experience and drive in the field of simulation. We’re incredibly excited about the potential and capability Meta brings to the field of simulation. This amazing opportunity to become a part of Meta will help us redefine what the cutting edge of simulation is, through the amplification of every great quality found in Heatblur. With Heatblur and Meta working together, there are absolutely no limits to what we can achieve. Beyond this, it assures and guarantees that the Viggen, Tomcat and other future Heatblur products will remain on the absolute cutting edge in terms of quality and execution. This transition will allow us to continue building our team and help ensure that we have the resources to fully support our modules in the future. Thank you for your support, we’re so excited for our future together and what that means for you as consumers, and we hope you are too!

  18. This was definitly the craziest landing I filmed since the Emirates Airbus A380 at DUS a year ago. At first the Antonov An-124 of Volga Dnepr which arrived empty from Moskau appeared like a normal landing but immediatly after the front gear touched the ground the main gear went up again and due to the crosswind it floated slowly to the right. Although many pilots probably would have initiated a go around the AN-124 crew just didn` t care and placed the main gear on the ground. I filmed this today at Cologne. Watching an Antnonv AN-124 in action is always a pleasure but seeing such an interesting maneuver makes it even more amazing. The Antonov AN-124 is one of the biggest cargo planes in the world and its often used for cargo charter flights. Currently there are just three civl Antonov An-124 operators worldwide, Antonov Design Bureau, Maximus Air and Volga Dnepr Airlines. Thanks for watching. contact: cargospotter@gmail.comSOURCE
  19. Procedural Compliance This NTSB video on procedural compliance for flight crews, which is targeted at pilots, airline operations departments and aviation regulators, uses findings from seven commercial airplane accidents to show how deviations from standard operating procedures can initiate a chain of events that can lead to devastating consequences.

  21. The first strong storm of 2019 caused lots of damage in western germany and some pilots were force to show their skills while wind gusts up to 60 knots interrupted the approach. I filmed for approximately three hours behind the runway and recorded more go arounds than normal landings. 30 go arounds within three hours is a quite remarkable number. Most pilots had to initiate a go around cause of a wind shear warning. Can anyone tell me what happened when the second plane vacated the runway (01:15)? For a second I thought the landing gear broke. The Boeing 787 of All Nippon Airways which is also visible in this video aborted the landing attempt and diverted to London Heathrow which is about 600km away from DUS: LHR was the only airport nearby with a replacement crew and that` s why they weren` t able to divert to a closer airport.

Come with us and enjoy the massively impressive friendliness of the Air Austral crew, stunning cockpit views from 20 different perspectives as well as the world-class Business Class product of this traditional French airline. Air Austral is a French airline with its headquarters at Roland Garros Airport in Sainte-Marie, Réunion, France. The airline's main base of flight operations is Roland Garros Airport. It operates scheduled services from Réunion to metropolitan France, South Africa, Thailand, India and a number of destinations in the Indian Ocean. The company has 900 employees. Air Austral was created in December 1974 by local businessman Gérard Ethève. It was Réunion's first commercial airline, known as Réunion Air Services (RAS). By August 1977 RAS had started regional services from Sainte-Marie to Mayotte[6] with a 32-seat Hawker Siddeley HS 748 turboprop. RAS became Air Réunion in December, 1986. In October 1990 Sematra, a company 46% owned by the local councils of Réunion with the remaining shares owned by banks and other private partners, purchased Air Réunion. A month later, Air Réunion became Air Austral. Two months later, Air Austral bought its first Boeing 737-500. Another 737-300 was acquired in 1994, and in 1997 the airline purchased a 737-300QC, which enabled both passenger and cargo only traffic. In 2000 the airline took delivery of an ATR 72-500, a short-haul turboprop. By then, Air Austral operated from both Roland Garros Airport in Sainte-Marie and Pierrefonds Airport in Saint Pierre with scheduled services to Mayotte, Johannesburg, South Africa, Comoros, Mauritius, the Seychelles, and three destinations in Madagascar (Antananarivo, Tamatave, Nosy Be, Majunga). In 2003, Air Austral launched its first long-haul service between Réunion and Paris, with two Boeing 777-200ERs. The two Boeing 777s were joined by a third Boeing 777-200ER in 2005. A second long-haul route from Réunion to Marseille and Lyon was established. In 2007, a third long-haul service to Toulouse via Marseille started. In 2008, the airline introduced new uniforms for staff and crew members, designed by Balenciaga. The second ATR 72-500 was added to the fleet, followed by a third a few months later. In April 2009, Air Austral started a new service to Sydney and New Caledonia, thus opening up a new route between Paris and Sydney via Réunion. The airline also acquired two Boeing 777-300ERs. In November, it placed a firm order for two all-economy class 840-seat Airbus A380s, for delivery in 2014. These are intended for Air Austral's Réunion-Paris flights. In June 2010, it was announced that Air Austral would start scheduled flights from Réunion to Bordeaux and Nantes from February 2011. In August 2011, Air Austral received its first Boeing 777-200LR. In April 2012, founder and chief executive Gérard Ethève was replaced by Marie-Joseph Malé following financial difficulties caused by risky business decisions made worse by high fuel prices. Non-profitable lines to Nouméa, Sydney, Marseille, Bordeaux, Nantes, Toulouse and Lyon were closed. The company has since returned to profit. Also in April 2012, Air Austral was unable to pay for a new 777-200LR awaiting delivery. The company is looking to sell on the plane instead of taking delivery. Following this development, Air Austral announced in May 2012 that it would defer or cancel its order for 2 Airbus A380s, with a decision to be made by the end of June 2012. In October 2015, the company announced the sale of its single Boeing 777-200LR to Florida-based broker Atlas Aviation in November 2015. Air Austral simultaneously announced the lease, from November 2015 to May 2016 of a Boeing 737-300QC (QC for quick change) from ASL Airlines France (formerly Europe Airpost). The plane involved was F-ODZZ, a convertible version of the 737-300 (the cabin configuration can be changed from passengers to freight) that had actually already been in Air Austral service between 1997 and 2005. It was used until the first of the two Boeing 787-8s ordered by the company was delivered in May 2015.SOURCE
  23. Storm Eberhardt caused lots of trouble and damage in germany today. Especially western germany was affected by the first strong storm of 2019. I filmed at Düsseldorf Airport for three hours today and recorded 30 (!!) aborted landings. I saw more go arounds than normal landings. Some planes like the Boeing 787 of All Nippon Airways or an Airbus A320 of Vueling performed a go around and after noticing the strong crosswinds with wind gusts up to 60 knots they didn` t return for a second attempt and immediatly diverted to other airports. The B787 was already on approach, made a go around and diverted to London Heathrow (600km away). Some planes even had to go around twice and the pilots had repeat the entire approach process for a third time.. This video definitly shows the amazing skills of the pilots. Even during impossible weather conditions with agressive wind gusts up to 60 knots all pilots were able to handle the situation perfectly. I am just a little worried about the passengars cause I am quite sure some vomit bags had to be renewed after those landings. Thanks for watching, new videoes every tuesday and friday. contact: cargospotter@gmail.comSOURCE
