Virgin Atlantic B747-200 Classic Video

Fri Oct 03, 2014 12:57 am

Nice video, you gotta check this out if you haven't yet. Although its from June 1995, this video is about two hours long, and if your patient to watch it, a friendly flight crew pretty much goes through the entire cockpit instrumentation in vast amount of detail in flight. No math book required for this lesson. I sure learned a lot from this exciting video. Was curious to know about what all those instrument dials, buttons, etc. was about mostly on the flight engineers panel.

I've got this on DVD. It's a good feature and very educational. Also amazing nowadays to look back at what IFE and fashion was like 20 years ago!

Brought back memories of my first LGW-BOS flight on VS with this exact product. It was such a novelty having PTVs despite being small. I actually had a sort out recently and found the headphones featured in the above video.

What also is amazing is the changes at LGW ! Caledonian / Air 2000 / Air UK / Emirates A310 and Delta Tri Stars! Good days indeed.
