    Nice.

    That has to have been from back when the Hong Kong landings were on the old site, requiring an approach over the town.

    The left screen images were a bit assorted and I think could have been left out. Still an interesting clip tho.

    It was interesting. Sometimes it looked like the left and right sides were not quite in sync during some of the approach turns.

    It was cool, but what you don't see is the computer landing that big mother of an airplane.

    Do you know what the differance between God and a pilot is?

    Or

    How many pilots does it take to screw in a light bulb?

    As an old Carrier Sailor I was really glad to see the clips of carrier operations, especially on the Soviet's Kuznetzoff.

    If you ever flt into San Deigo its kind of like that, with out the turn. The plane gets so low it almost feel like you are going to clip some of the buildings during landing.
