Anyone know the music? Shazam is no help.

Heathrow approach has to be an ever so slightly stressful job.

Gusty. Cool vid!

That was pretty neat.

/Thanks subby

He's all over the place, 900 feet, up to 1300 feet . . . what an asshole.
 
2012-11-04 02:03:07 AM  
Kept thinking he was panning left, until I realized the clouds were moving right. Having no fixed point of reference added a new dimension.
 
2012-11-04 04:18:16 AM  
I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you.
 
2012-11-04 05:49:32 AM  
It would have been nicer if he'd cleaned his lens. Just spent 5 minutes cleaning my monitor that wasn't actually dirty

That was four minutes of hot glide slope action.

Thank you Subby.

Pretty cool, but not suprising.  Planes stacked up is the norm.  
 
Used to fly out of the third busiest airport in Florida.a stacked pattern was the norm.

Reminds me of when i was a student pilot and landing a cessna 182 at Chicago O'Hare airport. Flew into the ARSA and came under the control of approach, and pretty much at that point was their biatch. You HAVE to go where they tell you unless you have an emergency. Anyway, i was lined up for landing on one of the main runways when this communication between myself and the tower occurred.


CT: Cessna 5458p, expedite landing, turn left at first exit.

Me: Cessna 58p roger. ( gives it more gas, tries to keep the nose down)

(15 seconds later)

Ct: Cessna 58P, expedite landing, traffic coming up on your six.

Me: Chicago Tower, Cessna 58P, is landing as fast as is safely possible

Ct: Cessna 58p, look behind you...

Me:.....(sees 747 on my ass about 6 city blocks away, going probably 150, where i was trying to land at about 90. which is possible, but hard on the plane)

Me: Cessna 58p roger. (does a quick carrier landing on the runway, slamming it down without stalling it, but managing to make the first exit.

/I parked the plane in the proper area, and sat and shook for about 15 minutes. It was my first cross country solo, and i wish i had not chosen such a large airport for my first leg of the trip. But, if nothing else, it was a education. They generally don't like small civilian aircraft landing at major airports due to your low approach and landing speed. You pretty much almost get run over.

/I know..i know..csb.

1. ARSA - you are old.
2. 91.131 wasn't in effect back then? Pilots with only a SPC can't fly into O'Hare.
3. I was told to maintain max forward speed going into MSP in a Piper Seminole for spacing until I started creeping up on the DC-9 in front of me.

Also, o'hare has never had an ARSA, would have been a TCA, which is class B these days. You sure you flew into O'Hare?

/ ya, I'm 46 so it was a while ago. Interesting landing though, even though kind of nerve wracking for a student pilot.

Cool.

Not dissing it but O'hare's limo lot is about 500 feet south of the main east-west runway and you get a much better feel being that close.

Yes, they are stacked up, however the video was shot with a zoom lens at maximum which will emphasize the distant images as being larger/closer than they actually are.

I can tell that's fake. The skies in In-'n-Out territory are never that color.

I lived in Winthrop, MA for two years when I was going to school in Boston, and I used to love watching the planes come into Logan from Winthrop Beach. During the busy periods there would be 4-5 planes lined up just like in the video, and it was amazing to see them lined up in a perfect line, not even off by one degree.

They usually only land 737's on that runway. Cool shot.

24R? They land just about everything on that runway - it's the primary landing runway on the north side of the field on a westerly flow. In May of this year I shot video of a 777, followed by an A340, followed by a 747.
 
2012-11-04 05:01:27 PM  
...the major airlines just happen to use a lot more CRJ, 737, and A320 than anything else, so probability favors those types. But at almost 9,000 feet long, they land anything and everything on 24R.

Was a student pilot returning from a cross country flying into Manassas. Leesburg handed me off to Manassas when I was 10 miles out. Manassas told me to contact them again when I had the field in sight. I replied that I had the field. They told me to continue on my current heading and to expect landing clearance.

So, I tooled along for another 8 minutes headed straight at the runway.

Manassas got back on the radio and asked if I planned on turning final any time soon.

I replied that no... I was on a straight-in approach and would be starting my descent, though.

"Do you *NOT* see how big that runway is? You're on a straight in approach to Dulles. That runway is big enough for you to land sideways. Look to your right, dude. We're over here."

(looks to the right)

"Oh, hey! Yeah... um, turning final..."

/not really...but it took me awhile to get the nerve back to hop back on the taxiway. Once i got out of the control area i was fine.
