Interlude: #Cockpit View #A320 Low Vis. Takeoff!

#blog #avgeek #aviation #airline

Folks, I'm excited to share with you a video of an extremely low-visibility, 1,000 RVR (1/8th mile in Freezing Fog) takeoff, filmed from the cockpit jumpseat!

I added some subtitles and tidbits to help you enjoy the ride.

HAPPY TAKEOFFS!

    What I Want Under the Christmas Tree

    What I want under the Christmas Tree, hmm . . .


    cap'n aux, capnaux, captain aux, aux, novel, blog, blogging in formation, flight for control



       You mean, besides Karlene Petitt's new thriller,


       Flight For Safety? 


       (see karlenepetitt.blogspot.com


       it's due out very, very soon!)

    I have to be honest: it took me a long time to come up with this post. "What I want under the tree" is, frankly, a tough question for "the guy who has everything." I have a home, a loved one, a loving family. I love my kids. I love my job. I love my hobbies. I am secure (or as secure as a pilot could be, anyway!).

    And my Cap'n Aux friends keep me entertained to no end! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and  Happy Holidays to Miss TWA, Swayne, Karim, Junior, Alex, Justin, Mark, Jason, Daniel, Hamza, Jordan, Alvin, Bill, Patrick, Rory, Leslie, Giulia, UK Dave, and all my other wonderful cyber-friends!

    So, what is the one thing the Cap'n who has everything not have?
