Hi there,

Just last week I returned from a month long vacation in the country i originate from - Pakistan. Living in Denmark we took a flight from Copenhagen to Islamabad. Wanting to do something extra for my wife and son, I ordered Business Class seats and boy what a treat it became to be. 2 wonderful flights both on the outward and homeward trip. Im not much of an author and writing skills in English are just soso. But I would happily like to share with you the videos of both trips. And I hope (moving)pictures say more than a thousand words.

Video one is of CPH-ISB (Copenhagen-Islamabad). Video taken from Cockpit of descent, approach and landing

Video two is of departure lounge in ISB, apron movements, takeoff shot from Business+ paxcabin and then cockpit approach to Oslo, Gardermoen and later business+ paxcabin of approach to Copenhagen, Kastrup.

Videos have already been featured on GlobalPia - the unofficial fansite of PIA.
The videos have been compressed to 20 and 30 megabytes to keep the original filesizes of 150+ megabytes down to minimum.

The videos can be found on this page:
http://www.globalpia.net/inflight_A310videos.htm


Thanks to the wonderful cabin- and cockpitcrews of Pakistan Int'l Airlines for making such videos possible. Mind you, this is the FIRST time, that COCKPIT videos of PIA have been put ONLINE.

Absolutely fantastic videos - a massive well done to you!

Nice to see a report on a PK A310 too - we don't see those here in MAN.

Never tell your girlfriend about all the 'action' you're getting at the airport - only photogs understand that.

Wow. I really enjoyed that!
Brought back some memories of the many times I have flown into CPH and OSL. Was cool to see images of action at Pakistani airports.
And I think the music was brilliantly chosen for this!
Thank you for sharing this.

Really brilliantly done.... two questions for you:

1. How did you get the cockpit access?
2. Your video highlights a fault indicator lit for engine 1 - did you ask what that meant?

Thanks for posting this, it was very enjoyable. Also, I liked the music too - fit the pictures perfectly.

Cheers.

1. How did you get the cockpit access?
2. Your video highlights a fault indicator lit for engine 1 - did you ask what that meant?

1) I got the access because I knew the crew beforehand. Otherwise its impossible to get access (almost impossible)

2) I didnt ask, because at that time the pilots were busy flying and I didnt want to interfere. But I wasnt nervous, nor did the pilot seem to react to the overhead annunciation. So I dont think it was anything dangerous.


You are most welcome. I really love to share all aviation stuff. But special pleasing is it to share something unique like this - inflight cockpit video of a PIA aircraft, never before seen online.

Im very happy to receive all the positive response.

The videos are currently unavailable, because of overwhelming popularity with u guys. My hosting company has suspended my webserver for the time being due to massive bandwidth usage - sucks!

Hope the server is up again soon.

Thanks again

Kamran,

I would love to see the vids, as I am curious on your experience with PIA (do you plan a detailed report, too?).. do you think you can compess a little so the size is smaller?
I recommend the STOIK Video converter (Freeware): see as example my vids:

AI: DEL-FRA V.V. 74D: The Story Of A Combi (Pics/Vids) (by Mrniji Feb 19 2005 in Trip Reports)


That brings me to a totally different question (sory, I could not refrain): What happened to Pakistani Cricket today in Visakhapatnam?  bigthumbsup  Nice, he?

Best wishes! MrNiji

Hi MrNiji,

I was actually planning a regular tripreports, which I will accompany with photos of the cabin and catering.

Let me just have a look at that STOIK thing - Ill probably give a serious go, so U also can be able to view the videos. As far as my experience with PIA, in short, I was treated like a king - no less. Very impressed by PIAs inflight service. On ground in Pakistan, its a completely different story. You know what I mean, probably the same all over south-asia.

Cricket, yeah - quick demise of Inzie changed the whole thing. Saw it live here in Denmark on Sony channel.

Hi Jaysit,

I found a link to a trailer of the movie, this song in the background is from. Here is the trailer with the song featured.

Movie name is: Tumsa Nahin Dekha

Hey Kamran,

The vids are simply awesome, the A 310 jumpseat video just made me feel like I was riding on the jumpseat in the last 10 minutes, great, I enjoyed every second of it! Thanks for sharing!

See my latest jumpseat trip report here: DUS-CDG-MAN In Eco And On The Jumpseat (Pics/Vids). I also made some videos but unfortunately they are way too short.

Flying on the jumpseat is great fun, isn't is? Big grin

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for telling me about your trip report and videos. I enjoyed reading it and watching the videos. Yes, I really do agree, riding the jumpseat is the second best thing, obviously the best would be the front seats  Smile

For those of U who find the background music distracting, the videos are now also to be found on www.flightlevel350.com site.
