A link to a very cool video. . .

Does anyone know where one could get a copy of the original (Canal 5 France?) video. There is a smaller piece of this same presentation with better resolution and I'd love to get my hands on the original full length version.

. . . got me to thinking that I should put some stuff from the CV580 day's on here. I have some nice footage of Central America and the S Pacific from the flight deck. If anyone else has decent links or some of their own stuff I'd love to see it. Thanks.

I love this classic stuff, makes me melancholy for the day's of flying old beasties into small/rough strips in the middle of nowhere. Now day's most guy's I fly with have the autopilot in above 500 ft all the time, even on a good visual day; but then again many of them have a warbird to go home to.

Never thought that 727's could operate in such an environment!
Thanks for the insight!

Now that's a great plane, one of the greatest airliners... too bad I will never fly it, unless I move to Africa.
