Videographers Henry Tenby and Anthony Hickey from AirlineHobby.com DVDs visited Honeywell's Boeing 720 flight test operation in Phoenix in early February, 2007. In this clip we anchored a Sony HVR-A1U HD cam to the cabin floor looking out the passenger wing during a touch and go at Williams Gateway airport, during crew training on February 6, 2007. Over 16 hours of SD and HD video footage was shot during the visit, which will be released by AirlineHobby.com DVDs during 2007 as a Honeywell 720 Tribute DVD. HD DVDs of this historic aircraft and unique operation will be released in due course. Honeywell's 720 is scheduled for retirement in late 2007.
American Airlines Boeing 757 landing at Tegucigalpa Airport, Hondurus. Not the best video quality but it gives an excellent idea of how precarious an airport this is nestled between the hills of a shallow valley.
THY Turkish Airlines Airbus A340 landing sequence filmed at Istanbul Ataturk Airport in early October, 2005. This video clip is a preview for the Istanbul Airport DVD released by AirlineTV.net sister company AirlineHobby.com DVDs.
This publicity video was released to the media by the Vancouver Airport Authority YVR to document the first North American visit by the Airbus 380 when the huge craft visited Vancouver arriving from Sydney on November 29, 2006.
YVR was the only North American stop for the Airbus A380 as it visited 10 different airports worldwide on four trips. The visit was part of a certification process for the A380, demonstrating its capabilities on a continuous, typical airline schedule.
The aircraft landed on the north runway as scheduled at 0730, much to the delight of hundreds of plane spotters lining Ferguson Road, north of the airport. The A380 spent the day on the West Apron, where it was serviced and fuelled. It departed on time at 1630 for its final leg of the journey to its home base in Toulouse, France.
