I am not a pilot, nor a Flight attendant, nor a mechanic or any sort of that. I am just fascinated by planes, commercial aircraft that is. I liked the Discovery Wings Channel, The Airport series on BBC America. What i would like is if someone can point to a website where I can purchase DVDs at reasonable prices about specific planes. E.g a friend of mine had a DVD by national geographic about the workings of Air Force One. I just owuld like to build a library about all kinds of planes both Boeing and Airbus.

Anyone have any recommendations for specific DVD's from JustPlanes.

I had the United 777, which was very good but had to return it due to bad audio, and as it turned out, the whole batch the store received was bad,so I opted for the AF A330.

I have the AF A330, which is good, but the presentation of the video could be better, as there is no cockpit presentation in the first 30 minutes...and last but not least the BWIA A340...haven't watched it just yet but have read it is good.

My personal favorites are

KLM Cityhopper: Fokker 50/70/100
lots of takeoffs and landings

AirAlps: Do328
lots of scenery

I'd like to buy the Air Greenland, I heard that was really good.

I so far have three DVD's from JustPlanes in my collection:

- Aurigny
- Icelandair/Flugfelag Islands
- Norwegian.no

All excellent DVD's and all chosen by me because I've flown on each of the airlines featured. I have to say though that my personal favourite of the three has to be Icelandair/Flugfelag Islands, especially the Flugfelag flights - they fly into some very interesting airports - excellent viewing!

I have a fairly large collection now and have been a very satisfied customer of Just Planes for quite awhile now. I have most of the ITTV collection in VCR form.
The bottom line here is if you are looking for detailed cockpit and pilot explaination then go with ITTV. As for me I like the multiple flights and brief pilot presentation that is on the Just Planes productions.

An update...

I finally got to watch the BWIA A340 DVD. It is quite good, but sometimes it is a little hard to understand the FO because of his Barbadian accent. Fortunately in this video , there is a second pilot who does most of the cockpit layout, and his accent is negligible.

I had read that the Swiss MD11 & A340 DVD were quite good....thanks Bongo and George for reaffirming this.

I'll rate some of the World Air Routes DVD's that I have purchased.


  • Kenya Airways 4/5 - Nice well put together program, interesting aircraft types and rare African destinations featured.

  • Nationwide Airlines 4/5 - Another excellent program, interesting and rare aircraft types, even features 2 flights on the BAC 1-11! Nice flightdeck crew and destinations.

  • flydba.com 3/5 - Good DVD, nice crew, boring destinations.

  • HLX 2/5 - Very disappointed with this one, too much "out of the window" filming.

  • Flyjet 5/5 - Excellent DVD, great crew, nice holiday destinations and a very interesting cockpit presentation.

  • Dutchbird 5/5 - Another excellent DVD, great flightdeck crew, nice destinations, well filmed.

  • Styrian Airways 3/5 - Good DVD, a nice look at the operation of a CRJ.

  • Jetmagic 5/5 - Fantastic DVD, the crew on this DVD are some of the best crew I have ever seen filmed on a DVD/Video so far. This program features the ERJ-135/145 which is an aircraft that is seldom seen on aviation programs. I highly recommend purchasing this DVD!


I wouldn't recommend you purchasing any of the ITVV videos unless you looking for very detailed cockpit presentations.

Hope you found that helpful.  Smile

That is a very good point. I have the Concorde DVD, and it starts with an overview of all the technical operations of the plane, then the cockpit etc. It is very good, but very, very detailed.

That is nice to have for a plane you always liked (so you could see what systems realy do and compare/learn things for FS)..

For me pretty expensive because I almost like very wide body around Big grin

I will have a look for some of their stuff, thanks for the info.

They have a great Hong Kong Kai Tak series from 1994 to the last day.

I would personally recommend V6 Goodbye and V1 Final Days which have received excellent reviews.

Seen so far of the justplanes.com DVDs,
Gabon Express,
a little bit of an dissappointment, no subtitles, conversation in English and
French. Nice presentation of the HS748, but the presentation of the Caravelle
(main attraction) was poor, nice flight scenes of both aircrafts in an exotic environment.
