'Chathams niner six' holding short, while a SIA B777 is touching down on runway 23. It was a unique experience to see the pilots doing their job by flying this workhorse built in the early 1950's. The pilots had a pretty high workload throughout the whole flight, so no way to compare the good old Convair with modern airliners, where computers support the cockpit crew in many ways.
