Is this the happiest MD-80 in the world?

Imagine being caressed by the hands of the first officer in this video (easy gentlemen, I mean if you were an aeroplane.) I’m really, truly not being sexist here. If you’re a QFI trying to explain to your early-hours students how to handle an aeroplane, just drop the patter and show them this movie. There is a moment at just about 2:52 when the hairs stood up on the back of my neck watching that left hand.

    It’s a pitty, that it’s impossible to share good shots, videos and experiences because of stupid, jealous people like kieran daly. I deleted the video and i am sure, i’ll never bring things like this online again. Sorry for all who liked it.

    Give me a break, there was nothing offensive said in the blog title. I have young girls and I took it as , look dad, look what else you can push your young girls to become. I personally thought it was a very good video. Unfortunatly I can’t show it to anybody else now.

    Hi Ochzga,

    I’m very sorry if you are offended by this blog post, but I can’t understand why you feel like that. What I am saying in the blog post is that the aircraft is being flown exceptionally well and instructors should tell their students to fly in the same way.

    I can only assume that I have written this in a way that you don’t understand. So I guess I didn’t do a very good job, and I will think about that.

    But I would be very grateful if you would republish the video. And I think everyone else would think the same. It’s a great movie and it shows some really nice flying.
