  1. It's amazing any new air craft use wipers. With all the technical advances these days you would think we were way past wipers.

  2. My dad used to be a mechanic for Northwest Airlines(Delta now) and worked on the 747s (the passenger versions).

  3. "John, we have to go. There is a problem and they need us at the control tower.""The control tower….what is it?"It's a tall skinny building with a room on top that directs the planes on the ground but that's not important right now!"    Great video and view that not many of us will ever see.  Thanks for posting.

  4. I salute you guys. The amount of balls and brains that it takes to do your job is grossly underpaid. The amount of responsibility you have is immense. Do not let your love of flying allow the corporate pogues to screw you out of your fair recompense. Screw those tassle-toed bean counters. You deserve double the pay you are getting!

  5. One of the benefits of being a freelance pilot is that you can video tape cockpit actions whether the company allows it or not.

  6. Thank God above we made another good night of sleep. With the way Trump and the N. Korean leader is acting I would like to send them both to their rooms without dinner. These two have got to stop it we have better thing to do with our time one is too make America an honest country that have good family values and look out for those who given there lives and time to serve the one thing we love and thats our country, Mr. Trump we are the ones who sacrificed our lives not you or your family so if I were you I would at least here what your people are saying are the golds we need to reach. You are always signing things everyday. Do you even read halve the things you sign?

  7. Pilot has a little OCD. That's not a bad thing for a pilot.

    TPC really needs to do more like Pilot's Eye with GTC, ATC, descriptions, graphics, etc. It jiust makes for more interesting viewing.
