Come watch the AS MD-84 pilots over downtown Seattle. A number of "Top Gun" fans in those ranks, me thinks.  Smile

That is a pretty awsome plane. It would be a blast to fly
As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

Not really. It's part of an expansion into door to door air service. By using such a small aircraft, they can land in front of your house.  Smile

Unfortunately, the #2 engine is a fake  frown , would have been a sweet RC airplane with 3 real engines!

By the way, some FedEx (Mountain Air) pilots in real life are pretty crazy, I've seen them show off when landing at CLE in their Cessna 208s.
