Very cool! Sounds like Mexico will be embracing the drone.

Thanks for sharing!
The video is great, but the liveries are soooo boring.
Hope to see EK in the next video!

I hope someone is able to do a video like this at ATL or ORD... I'm sure the FAA would have something negative to say about it though.

WOW! I don't know what catched my eye the most, if the wonderful takes or the warnings and disclaimers at the beginning and the end. As always, I'll remain a 727 fan, and the black Federal Police transport was my favorite, even if it was just a cameo.
My other plane is an A380.

I love the Mexico City Airport. I usually fly in and out a couple times of year. The Federal Police still use the 727 on a regular basis. Planes taking off from the Tijuana International Airport fly over the school where I work. It is not unusual to see these 727s. They are used to ferry prisoners, drug-bust money and Federal Police personal.

It was cool that they also helped in the Cabo humanitarian flights after hurricane Odile. A most excellent video btw.

Won't ever forget working a DC-10 from DFW to MEX back in the 80's. The 10 had a small viewing window in the lower lobe galley directly in back of the nose gear. I would always stay down there as long as I could in order to watch the doors open and the gear come down. MEX was just so incredibly sprawling and always, always had a brown haze over it. I think MEX stands out because this was the only month where I didn't have to be upstairs doing something.

Incredible video, the shots with the American 737 and MD-83 were beautiful!

Ironic how they get permission to do something like this but when I lived there, my dad and I would always get in trouble with the arrogant police officers on the roof of the domestic parking lot..

You can't really expect more (sadly) from these people, low education, low pay, low training but with a gun and a badge...the perfect recipe for a power trip.

I'm sure that for this particular video everyone and their mothers had to sign off on it...but in any case a really cool video, I hope we would get more like this from MEX and other airports; image a similar video from KIX with a low flyby from the sea in to the airport, or from one of those small airports in Nepal and the Alps with the huge drops at the end of the runways.
