I was on a domestic Air China flight, from PVG-PEK, on the 25th on one of their A330-200s, and as we were getting close to the departure end of the runway, the captain (who sounded Australian) comes over and informs us that the nosewheel camera will be on into the cabin, and on our AVOD screens and on the screen in the front of the cabin (I was in biz), and lo and behold, there is the view from the nosewheel from lineup until a few minutes after liftoff.
On arrival, the same thing from about 3-4 minutes out, the nose camera comes over and we can watch the crew fighting a little crosswind on final approach and the flare.
I loved it, since as I commented to my wife, that was the next best thing to riding flight deck jumpseat.
Does Air China do that fleet wide, or is it strictly a captain's discretion item? I think didnt AA do it a long time ago? Like I said, I loved it, but I can see how a nervous flier could get even more nervous watching the crew fight a crosswind on short final...
