WOW!!

Recommended Posts

On "airliners.net" under the most popular in the past 24-48 hours section there was a panel photo on the 777-300 series. This A/C had external cameras so u could see the wings and fuselage.What a great idea...I've never seen this before, is it a new thing? I bet this would be really helpful when you suspect structual damage.

On Sout African, two of the IFE channels show you the view from the nose wheel and the tail cameras. I watched the approach into JNB from the tail camera view. That was pretty darn cool!
