Some of Deano's lot (and others) having a bit of a sporty day The Continental 757 and final Flybe take off are terrifying! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7P9OAng32F0

Sandy Deano and all pilots that can still fly an aircraft (not just fly the 'fly by wire' systems and become totally inept when the 'fly by wire' fails) deserve astounding acclaim.:angel: Cheers - Do raise a glass everyone. Here are a few still pics (severe crosswinds and atmospheric changes are not ingracious purely just to small aircraft as pics depict) https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=korean+A380+in+crosswind&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=nztJU4PaKaee7Abu2YCYDw&ved=0CEoQsAQ&biw=1024&bih=569

We earned our keep somewhat yesterday after a window failure at 36,000 feet over the Atlantic ocean. Lucky it was the outer panel so it doesn't require depressurisation. After turning off the window heat, the pane cracked, but I didn't get a picture. http://i1064.photobucket.com/albums/u375/Raffles-/Mobile%20Uploads/20140415_122118_zps10i8wn6i.jpg

Fair to say, that's the last time aloft for that window!

For that "Bar In The Sky" where all good pilots go when their number is called.:angel: (Or should I re-phrase that using the philosophy of the late comedian Dave Allen) :D
