I like it a lot, however, I wish you could hear the ATC but that's my only gripe. Procedure and system wise, it's fantastic.Eric

ITVV makes SUPERIOR airplane videos... those "World Air Route" and "Just Planes" videos end up looking like a kids science fair project compared to the professionally done ITVV ones. Highly recommended. :)

The UAL 777-200 DVD shows more of an "inflight action." During the flight, the capt. goes over the cockpit (overhead, main panel, pedestal, ACARS demonstration).The Cathay 777 DVD by ITVV does not show a lot of inflight action. It was shot around the time that the 777's were first introduced into the fleets all over the world. This DVD, however, has a significant component recorded in the simulator. In the simulator part, the capt. goes over all the systems in a very detailed way (much more detailed compared to the UAL 777 DVD), as well as gives a demonstration of various fly-by-wire subsystems (TAC, stall and overspeed protection, bank angle protection).

>does it also go into landing techniques of the 777 ?The UAL 777 DVD shows two actual landings. If you closely follow the pilot's actions, you can always pick up some useful stuff. The other DVD (Cathay) shows one landing and one go-around real life. No landings are demonstrated in the simulator.

I have many many cockpit Dvd's and the justplane United DVD is surely one of the best, if not the best.(i do not have the Itv 777)Only small gripe for me, as was already said, you don't hear ATC.Very good filming, good explanations about the systems and all the procedures from flight preparations to landing and ,as was already said also, if you follow well you can get many informations about flying and also landing techniques. Regards.Guy
