    Another amazing sequence where the Boeing triple seven comes in for a landing... crabbing into the wind it straightens and slams on the brakes... all that energy dissipates as the airliner comes to a halt.... reassuring for all those who get to fly this wonderful plane. I often see them above our house when I am sat in the garden but have yet to enjoy (?) a flight in one...

    Very nice videos. The rolling Vulcan was interesting. It always thrills me to see large multi-engined aircraft manoeuvre like that. I once saw a B-1 go through it's paces at an air show, and it was like watching a big fighter. It was pretty cool.

    764? never heard of it....

    I miss the Vulcan's wingovers etc. I saw the B1 a couple of times - most impreessive beast. Have not seen the B2 but vids make it look boring.
