(Video) 737-200 Combi / Gravel Strip

Submitted
An interesting video about a 737-200Combi with Gravel protection that flyies from Montreal to a Gold Mine in the Arctic. With all the talk of Automation.. it is an interesting watch as ONLY automation they use is nav and ALT hold - no A/T, level change... all manual flying. Looks like a blast. (m.youtube.com) More...

Its interesting that they can stuff 58 pax (11,600 lbs ?) all the way in the rear of an otherwise empty a/c and not worry about the cofg.

There was a big concrete block at about 3:40. I suspect used for balance

Yup. Down to the end they explain it as well. Helps to prevent tipping over and keeps the center of gravity in check.

They will have to shift cargo to starboard to balance the cockpit weight.
