    JUST PLANES CORSAIR 747-400 Reviewed by: Marlon Carter + Cockpit filming using up to 6 cameras + Fantastic views on takeoff & landing! + Detailed Preflight Preparations + Crew Briefings + Checklists + Departure & Arrival Airport Charts + Detailed Cockpit Presentation + Pilot Presentation + Great scenery HIGHLIGHTS Corsair is an airline that has always opened its doors to aviation enthusiast over the years and Just Planes has once again had the privilege of filming the operations of one of their most iconic aircraft. With Corsair International being the very last French 747-400 operator, this program offers viewers the opportunity to view the beautiful city of Paris from the cockpit of this aircraft, as it makes an 11 hour round trip to the beautiful Mauritius Island. To begin our journey, we are introduced to our pilots as they prepare the aircraft for a night time departure. During their preparation, viewers will be able to see all of the crucial procedures that are carried out by the pilots prior to departure. These procedures include FMS setup, performance calculations and engine start to list a few. Once completed, we taxi to the runway where our heavily loaded 747 effortlessly makes its way into the dark skies above. After departing the Orly airport, our flight to Mauritius Island mostly follows the routine procedures associated with long haul international flights. After a beautiful sunrise over the ocean, our pilots can be seen carrying out their arrival briefing which is followed by a scenic approach and smooth landing at Mauritius. As an added bonus, Just Planes has also included a replay segment of our approach and landing which allows viewers to experience this flight from various perspectives. The second segment of this documentary features our return flight to the Orly airport. During our return flight, there many presentations from the captain which included essential bits of information pertaining to our flight and a presentation on the company’s operations. For viewers who are unfamiliar with the operations of Corsair, this segment may provide some insight into the history of Corsair, their fleet and the future of their fleet of 747s. As our 11 hour journey progresses, the First Officer also engages the viewers with an explanation of the CPDLC feature of the FMS and a detailed presentation of each panel of the 747 cockpit. For anyone who is an avid fan of the 747, these segments are perhaps the most enlightening throughout this video. As this documentary comes to an end, the final highlight of our journey centers mostly on the scenic aspect of this video. While on approach to the Orly airport, the scenic views of Paris just prior to sunset was an amazing sight to behold and it truly inspires appreciation for the gift of flight. Overall, this documentary aptly captures the thrill of flying onboard the Boeing 747 and it also showcases the professionalism of Corsair pilots. If you are an avid enthusiast or a fan of the 747, this video documentary is highly recommended. Video Preview

    AIR ICELAND DASH 8–Q200/Q400 JUST PLANES Reviewed by: Marlon Carter Reviewed by: Marlon Carter + Cockpit filming using up to 5 cameras for great views on takeoff & landing! + Pilot Presentations + Flight Preparations + Cockpit Set-up + Pilot Briefings + Checklists + Departure & Arrival Airport Charts + Cockpit Presentation + Aircraft Walkaround + Fantastic routes to Greenland and within Iceland + Amazing Scenery HIGHLIGHTS Air Iceland may seem like a newcomer to the line-up of Just Planes videos, but back in 2004, Just Planes first visited Air Iceland to film their fleet of Fokker 50s and Metroliners. This time around, we will be getting a behind the scenes look at the operations of Air Iceland and their modern fleet of Dash 8 Q200s and Dash 8 Q400s. Departing from Reykjavik, this documentary takes us to intriguing destinations such as Kuluksuk, Isafjordur, Egilsstadir, Akureyri and Ilulisaat. While the names of these destination may be a bit of a tongue twister, I can guarantee that after viewing this video, the striking beauty of these destination will leave a lasting impression on your mind. On our first flight to Kuluksuk, in addition to seeing the professionalism of our pilots in action, you will also see just how outstanding the Dash 8 Q400 truly is as it flies in and out of gravel runways with ease. As a fan of the Dash 8, I truly appreciated many of the informative segments about the aircraft which included a presentation on the cockpit and a walkaround inspection of the aircraft. The Dash 8 Q200 also shines throughout this program with Air Iceland sporting an upgraded cockpit that closely resembles the displays seen in the Q400. One of the most outstanding moments in this program features the Q200 landing at the famous Isafjordur airport which is well known to be one of the most challenging to any pilot. The fact that the pilots of Air Iceland make flying these difficult approaches seem so easy is a testimony to the outstanding quality of training received by these pilots. If you are keen on knowing more about the pilots, you may also enjoy a few segments where the pilots share a little about how they got into aviation. To an aspiring pilot, hearing these stories can be very inspirational. On a final note, while this video is a Dash 8 lover’s paradise, it also showcases just how much of a paradise Greenland and Iceland can be. Even if you cannot imagine a cold territory to be anything like a paradise, the amazing scenery seen throughout this program is guaranteed to leave you awe-inspired. With Just Planes featuring clips from 5 cameras, there is no shortage of perspective. If you are an aviation enthusiast or you are interested in the Dash 8, then this video is by far one of the best you will find. I certainly hope that Air Iceland continues to open its doors to the world and to inspire generations to come through the love of aviation. Video Preview
