The 777 shots are spectacular.

The music is rather good as well............



Check out the 757 landing at Toncontin in the Honduras:

Wow, that second one, there's almost no flare at all! They have to dive the plane into the runway!

The airport at Toncontin looks like it was built for DC-3's. I was looking for arresting wires as the 757 touched down

No wonder I love watching aircraft and flying! Commercial is so mundane...

I looked at some of the other videos and it looks like they took out the hill at the end of the runway that made things "interesting..." The approach looks pretty tame now.

I wonder if it's on FS - I'll have to give it a try.

Very cool! Some changes of pants were probably needed when they landed.
