Just Pl. No.57 (NRT)

Great video, I'm only 1/2 way through, haven't had time to watch it all. GREAT t/o and landing shots, the flare manoeuvre is shown to full effect on most wide-body landings, and the t/o's are exhilirating to watch.

Plenty of rarities ie. IB742 (are they still flying out to NRT?; I would have thought they used the A340 for impt. routes such as MAD-NRT? Anyway, a TK A340, UL Tri-Star, (probably replaced by an A330 now) IN 747SP, and a CP 762.

There's a great shot from within the Biz. Cabin of a JAL 744, as it makes its easterly approach over Tokyo Bay (probably inbound from the US then isn't it?), right up until touch-down, complete with JAL's therapeutic in-flight music.

Bought it straight from BuchAir here in the UK, I thereby saved on postage from the US; and why do JP videos charge extra for PAL? Avion Video supply NTSC/PAL for no extra charge!

So, if you were thinking of buying it, I do reccommend it thoroughly, I may be flying to Japan myself in August, courtesy of Austrian, but we'll see.

I'm off to RUH tomorrow, ex-LHR on BA's 777 service, should be quite nice, hope the UK ATC problems will have been ironed out by then; I'll file a "trip report" on Tuesday, since we get into King Khaled @ 22:30 local, I won't be in the mood to face a PC screen at that stage!
