RE: Old Airport Diagrams Online!

I find it quite irritating that you cannot download the images - the dude (jwhshd) merely scanned and uploaded old Jeppesen charts. You can find these in good engineering libraries.

Even with the video (thanks btw), it is hard to make any kind of a judgement. With the zoomed in video, you do not know how high the plane was flying, what its angle of attack was, how fast it was flying, etc.
