FlySSC, a go around is usually followed by a normal landing...  Big grin .

That can't be true ... I have downloaded 166 MB(!) and can't watch the video, though I use the newst version of Microschrotts Media Player (10).

Neither does QuickTime 6 play the video, nor Real Player 10.
What do you guys use?  Confused

The video is encoded in XviD, an open source MPEG-4 codec. I use gentoo, so I can't give you any detailed help, but try getting ffdshow.

The sound stream is in MP3. I'm not sure why you can't hear it, sorry.

It's unfortunate, since I'd say the sound is really more important. We've all seen a cockpit before...

Ok, I just got informed that the video has been viewed for 12000 times already!

The video is 166Mb, and that times 12000 means a whooping 1992GB of transfer. That means the server has transferred nearly TWO TERABYTES of data in one day...

I DO NOT wanna see the banwith bill :P

Special thx for hosting goes to nebula.fi!

I'll do my part if I get your bank account info. AY is a kind of co-op, and so should we be.

The link should still work, but it'll return a message directing people to a mirror.

"The recent release of Finnair MD11 cockpit-video has generated WAY more traffic than we could expect and has caused some problems with this server(seems to be HD failure). The video is now removed from this server but will be back online sometime in the near future"

This kind of message only when trying to download the video! So - can anyone help?

I have now been told that the server will be repaired by 1800 UTC if there aren't any unforeseen problems. The video will also still be available, so let's hope their hardware can take it better this time Big grin .

Anyway, I would like to thank Mr. Hares too. Very interesting video.

Definitley an excellent video. Great.

I especially apreciated the pre-departure check-list/chat between both pilots in finnish... This language is one of the most intriguiging I ever heard !!!

The video sure looks good, but am I the only one which sees a lot of shocks during the entire film? Those shocks are sometimes very bad which makes the film very difficult to see. Especially when the aircraft is landing, everything is shaking, so I can't see anything at all, because of the aircraft shaking too on landing.

Can anyone tell me how I can get rid of these shocks? The film looks very good, but those shocks makes it very irritating to watch.

Great video! Thanks! Seems like the entire flight was filmed. Anyone know why? Was this a Finnair official film or was it taken by a jumseating member of crew?

cheers

Hi Martin21,

I've already downloaded the whole video, that's why I asked how to fix it.

As far as I know, it's not anything official. Just filmed from the jumpseat for fun. They were lucky to catch a go around, though.

This will have been because of the camera is hand-held, and the mass of the photographer's body moves the light camera around during the 3-D acceleration/deceleration during the landing. Most modern handheld cameras have a special buffer memory circuitry to eliminate _small_ transits.
Real professionals would have used a fixed camera -- but it is relieving to know there's space for some amateur shooting in the cockpit still in the current world.

Seems high frame-rated clips such as this one require a hardware set with at least 2000 MHz of CPU speed and at least 512 MB of RAM. Players seem to drop frames just when the scene changes the most (hence the irritating drops) and the system is temporarily unable to cope with the decoding. The 3D or gaming performance of the system is irrelevant here.

The current release of Microsoft Media Player 10 plays this clip "off the shelf" without any additional codecs being needed. Mr Gates' enterprise provides
the MP10 free at the company website, no obligations or spyware attached. (There are some freebie players that come with a little bit of unwanted extras)

I tried to listen carefully to the soundtrack, but you'd have to be multilingual with very fast spoken Finnish (pilots discussing the user interface of the avionics computer, for instance), Aviation Finglish (used by the crew and the Finnish Controllers), and of course US Aviation English, and have a very keen ear. It is no wonder the actual cockpit recordings use hot miking.
