I flew on a CX 777 a few years ago that had a channel on the PTV that you could view a camera mounted under the plane. What other airlines have this feature ?

As wt Delta717 said, at least some of the 744 and 772ER of JL have it on the nose and belly.
I have flight between HKG-NRT once a year, and the personal TV usually show the take off and landing pictures in both airports even it's about 22:00 landing at HKG.



Looking forward to being in CX 747ADV and A388.....

Air France A332 have front and belly cameras (maybe B777 also, I am not sure).


Avoid 777 with 3-4-3 config in Y ! They are real sardine cans. (AF/KL for example)

Why do some airlines have this feature, is it because they have extra money or is it because they just can? Even an a320 has a camera on some european flights. Why don't U.S airlines have them?

Aircraft cams are really cool. I could only wish that american carriers got them. Of course I am only dreaming because with the way things are, cameras are the last thing on their mind. It must be a really cool experience to see take-offs and landings from these cams, I think I will be booking a flight with one of these airlines with them!

SAS has them on all mainline aircraft (I believe).

I flew over on a A340 ORD to CPN and the camera's were turned off in the USA and on once over international waters. I also flew from CPN to ARN (A321) and they were one the whole time. On my return from CPN to ORD, they were on until we reached the US and the they were turned off. The FA told me they were not allowed by US law to use the cameras over US airspace.

It is a very cool feature. Our departure from CPN to ARN, there was fog so thick you barely could see the aircraft on the stand from the terminal windows. The camera view was so neat, because all you could see was the lines on the taxi and runway, but it looked as if you were taxing of into no where. As we took off you couldn't see a thing, breaking through the fog into the sun was such a cool experience to see. (Obviously not as cool as being on the deck for it.) I wish US carriers would add them, or be allowed to.

JL definitely has them on some a/c; the 763 I flew PVG-NRT last week was fitted with a camera. Rather annoyingly though they turned off the feed to the PTVs as we pushed and you could only just see it on the overhead monitors. They didn't re-start the feed to the PTVs until we were nearly at top of climb.

I've mentioned in another thread that maybe the U.S. FAA doesn't allow them (security or something similar)? That's really the only reason (well...besides cost) I can think of that not a single U.S. carrier has opted for the cameras...

That's strange. Last time I flew ARN-EWR on SK A330 last November the cameras where on all the time, even when we landed in Newark. What is the risk by having the cameras turned on over the U.S anyway? What possible can you see from an airplane that you can't see from downloadable satellite images from the Internet?

Mischa.

Condor on their A-320, B-753 and B-763. But it's only switched on during take-off and landing.

I flew last December ZRH-DXB-MNL and back with EK.
They had the cams on all the time. It was in channel 17 and 18 as I remember.
So cool arriving in Dubai at night, with the full lighted up runways.
Really nice!
Even the arrival back in ZRH was very nice, since it was foggy and the runway
appeared really late, maybe 30 seconds before touch down. I guess that was an ILS CATIII approach.



Aviation! That rocks...

I flew AF's 772 (BRU/ZYR-CDG-BEY) a couple years back and there's no sign of a camera. Can't tell you about the 773s though. Just flew the AF 332 to BRU/ZYR-CDG-DXB and back and it has the camera. It's really lovely! Although it looks more like it is one single camera aiming at the horizon for take-off and landing and aiming straight down during flight than actually two cameras. Any details?

PS: CDG was a horrible experience, as most of the time.

AA used to have cameras under the nose on DC-10's that showed take offs/landings on the IFE screens. They were generally phased out in the 1980's and not put on any aircraft purchsed in the 1980's and later due to the ORD crash where the engine came off. Now there might be security restrictions in the USA, but still it was kinda cool to see that view.

25 Nsfguy : PHILIPPINE airlines A320 from MNL-CGY-MNL has cams.
26 AirPacific747 : I think you mean CPH and not CPN... but I dont understand why that happened.. when did you fly ORD to CPH? I flew CPH-IAD and IAD-CPH last summer and
27 MATURRO727 : Eva Air A330 Air France A330 and 777-300ER Iberia A340-600 Argentinas A340-200 and one 747-200 Varig 777-200 LAN A340-300 Qantas A330-300 and 747-400E
28 AirPacific747 : you forgot SAS A330-300 and A340-300
29 Lrgt : B6 has a camera that shows the flight crew the entire cabin.
30 SilentObserver : Sorry about that, Yes CPH. I guess now it was a while ago, Dec 2003. In hindsight my information is probably not as current as other peoples. Sorry.
31 Post contains images AirPacific747 : thats okay! no need to be sorry Maybe the US was more strict about cameras at that time because it was only two years after September 11th
32 Post contains links and images Andz : SAA have 3 cameras on the 346, top of tail, belly looking forward and one looking down. Any of you buffs identify the airport and the gate above?
33 Musapapaya : Does CX has these camera on their airbuses as well?
34 TimRees : GF has them on their A330's Recently flew LHR-MCT-LHR - unfortunately outbound flight at night and return cloudy/hazy then dark. It was great turning
