Well, who knows what is behind all this,that "SIM" looks expensive,maybe his son has some sort of limitation which prevents him from getting into the real deal.whatever the case may be it is quite an impressive piece of work. JJ
Used to go there a lot ,Shorts 330 ,no big deal with that Aircraft,, but for a heavy Jet, a turn to the right, because of those hills at the end (if I remember correctly) and full use of the runway, was always the norm.That girl got hit bad against the barrier,sometimes or many times I have noticed it takes a tragedy for Authorities to do something,like extending the runway at St Thomas after a 727 ran off in 1976,killing 97 people.
After reading all these comments and noticing the "nothing dangerous" responses,all of us who fly for a living know there is a certain unnecessary risk taking here, specially after what Mr Candee mentioned,, wonder if that Russian Captain was acting under pressure, or maybe not,maybe he was under the "macho" syndrome.Those control surfaces deflections are far from normal.Anyway, it is a great video.
Been a Law Enforcement Pilot for many years,we have experienced several accidents,
both Fixed wing and Rotorcraft.Lost co-workers,friends some as a result of the accidents,one shot from the ground.We have learned to not comment,speculate, or try to figure out what happened talking to others,we have kept it private.
