Many of my regular readers will know that I work in the aviation industry and have done so for many years. As part of that vocation I’ve been fortunate enough to ride ‘up front’ with the engine drivers on many occasions. 9/11 of course changed the way aviation works and that opportunity for the man in the street to visit cockpits and get a flavour for the work, has pretty much vanished. I realise I’m incredibly fortunate in that I still get the opportunity to see life at the sharp end from time to time, and its really difficult to explain what its like to see out of the big windows instead of the port holes in ‘steerage’.
This short video above is one of those rare opportunities to see what its like up front, with superb imagery and editing, this is two and a half minutes of your life that’s worth wasting!
