  1. 16:30 Yes the flapperons are always down on takeoff, that's why they're called flapperons. Not impressed mate. Especially after you made that stupd comment about the B787 being better than the A 380. No credibility see?

  2. Awesome flight and train report! You went to DMZ, wish you could have filmed more in the DMZ and close-up of the North Korean soldiers. Stunning Incheon Airport. Sydney still have not got a brand new airport yet so far! Compare to most major Asian airports in the region, Sydney Airport is a joke!

  3. Did you join a tour to get to the JSA? It's so funny how I came back to your channel. I'm actually subscriber, just now I looked for ways to visit the JSA and my friends are travelling to Seoul on BA and I wanted to see the BA 787 and came across your video so I wanted to ask =)

  4. I like 787, but would choose A380 for a long haul flight. Three is always some turbulence when crossing those mountains in China.

  5. You missed where the parked THAI B777 was going..except from that very informative video..and enjoyable..like I would travel myself..

  6. Great video and informative..those modern Asian airports are so wast that one have to make a world tour just to reach those far-away gates..like in Jakarta,Hong Kong or KLIA…..its like the airports are more designed to park aircrafts and tax free shops than for the poor bloke that has to navigate them..

  7. The south Koreans do like the Japanese..they connect airport to teh rail system..among the first to do that was the swiss national railway, SBB back in 1983 with a rail link from Zurich passing Zurich airport B and on to all Switzerland..

  8. Great video! Not just the flight details but also sceneries of both Seoul and London (two cities I know very well) as well as various landmarks on the way. Proof that air travel really brings very different parts of the world together.

  9. This video has been very informative. I loved every aspect of it. I enjoyed it from the beginning till the end. Thanks for sharing , I enjoy watching your videos.

  10. Another excellent and very informative video of your trips. Loveall your videos.You deserve a better (sharper) camera !.

  11. I think I got jet lag just watching this "movie". Outstanding job…one of the best ever YouTube videos I've seen. You did a great job with your explanations. Professionally done! Enjoyed!!! Thank you!

  12. waah the DMZ, KTX, Hangang, teheranno, HOngdae….Oh the memories !!! I have done that expressway from Seoul to Incheon more then a few times I can assure you. Incheon Airport is one of the most pristine airports huh. It is very modern and very awesome. YOu have done great service to advertise this fine airport.

  13. The low speed aileron moving close to lading has to do with maintaining the wings level due to some slight cross winds Windshear is a sudden change from a head wind to a tail wing or vice versa which would require a change in throttle . Great video!!!!

  14. As for the Flaperon behavior, here is the reason: Takeoff is one most stressful loads on the flaperon actuators. In order to reduce wear-and-tear and mean time between servicings, the following mechanisms are built into the aircraft's fly-by-wire controls. 1) The flaperon enters a "BYPASS" mode when takeoff thrust is first applied. This causes the flaperon to appear to droop and then gradually "float" upwards as thrust is applied. 2) At a certain speed [80 knots, maybe?], the flaperon's hydraulics are pressurized and the flaperon is then deflected full UP to get it out of the way of the engine blast. 3) Once the aircraft approaches V1, the flaperon then is released to normal function as a flight control surface. You will see similar behavior on the 777, but not on the 767 or 747 because neither of those aircraft has fly-by-wire systems.

    Airbus does not use the flaperon. Airbus builds aircraft with stiffer wings and uses envelope protection to ensure that the wing does not twist and cause a dangerous (and often fatal) "roll reversal" in the effect of the outboard ailerons. This allows them to have an unbroken line of flaps from the fuselage to the aileron, increasinging start Lift-to-Drag to get more payload off the ground. Boeing builds a lighter, but more flexible wing and so their widebodies need inboard ailerons, which saves weight at the cost of mechanical complexity. Both approaches have benefits and drawbacks and both companies build excellent aircraft. The drooping ailerons on the 767 were Boeing's first attempt at solving this problem, but the flaperons of the 777 and 787 have provided a more competitive solution, respectively. You will notice that the 777's flaperon does not extend, but the 787's does.

  15. If you were travelling , Economy Class how were you able to get access to those business class lounges? was just wondering

  16. Video rất hay. Nhưng mà bạn quay làm sao mà nghe được có 1 bên tai. Rất là nhức đầu !
