  1. You're description is misleading. This was a visual approach, the raw data ILS gave only secondary reference. Now if it had been IMC, then it would have been a true raw data ILS approach

  2. When the speed is being set on the autopilot system, why does the pilot still control the throttle with his hand? Thanks

  3. Flaps Up, maintain a Heading of Five Zero Niner… check king point king king. (Roger that) I miss my days in the Tower.

  4. Hi Good Day! Your video is so awesome.. I was wondering if I can use your clip from 3:43 to 3:47 just 5 seconds for my mini project (a music video) for a non profit organization.. I can send you more information about it … thanks..

  5. Very nicely flown.
    Great to see the FD's off, that's the best way to keep these hand-flying skills sharp.
