  • The now-retired Captain Joe Moser in his earlier days with the old airline LTU. PF is First Officer Stefan Kater. Surely one of the most gorgeous approaches on Earth.

      OMG Steve, you can eliminate ads if they bother you so much just by using the Brave browser without even having to install an add-on. Firefox and many others also offer ad blocking through the use of add-ons. To make a complaint in a comment like this when you could solve the problem yourself is pretty lame.

      @elcaifo I have been on premium since last summer and it's awesome, I got the family plan for $17.99 a month and 6 of us get to use it, it truly has enhanced our TVclip experience.

      @AviationHub I subscribe to you tube premium, I am not a bot and can prove it..... ASS, LOL but you tube premium takes out all ads as well and also gives you download options to watch offline plus a bunch more of stuff, I got it for me and 6 family members for $17.99 a month, it really is a good deal if you use you tube a lot

    Had to laugh, runway 18 is the only runway, & not much of it either.

    This captain sounds like an idiot. I truly hope he didn't land without the engines spooled up 'you don't need any throttle' Did this airline have no stable criteria?

    • AviationHub
      AviationHub  14 days ago

      I would retract the statement about him being an 'idiot'. I can't be bothered to argue, you are wrong though. Also take the subtitles with a grain of salt, I very much doubt he was commanding a complete idling of the engines, but as he stated, they were trying to bleed off speed on the approach. They did seem too far into the approach to be doing that, but this video is quite old, the accepted standards of 1000ft stabilised may not have been so commonplace - indeed it is a relatively modern standard.
      Also the cockpit is very much not-sterile

    “I told you we would make it” would have been a great line in “Airplane!”, if the two pilots accidentally left open the internal comms with the passengers cabin.

    One of the reasons I won't get on an Airbus... A tray table where the yoke should be and the crew looks like they can't see over the dashboard.

    Captain Joe what a professional I would feel very safe in his hands wonderful pilot now the first officer had to be guided a bit his height on approach was out and his speed and Captain Joe had to repeat himself and tell him to let it bleed off but hey I suppose great pilots are created after many flights & many years of experience.

    Well that captain has been constantly saying LTU730 and not Lima-Tango-Uniform 730, I’m annoyed unless there is a valid reason for it in Male then sure.

    • Avantime
      Avantime 2 months ago +6

      It's misting because hot, humid outside air is entering the aircraft for air conditioning, and the air conditioning packs couldn't remove all the moisture while it's being chilled to a comfortable temperature, so that excess moisture condenses into a small "cloud" around the vent.
