In this documentary-style programme we join Captain Guy Stephenson, Virgin Atlantic's B747-200 fleet manager, Chief Flight Engineer Alan Bonnick and First Officer Adrian Thurley on flight number VS005/6 from London Gatwick to Miami, Florida and the return journey to Gatwick. En-route Guy, Alan and Adrian will guide you around the various systems that make this a truly "Classic" Jumbo aircraft.
In addition to seeing and hearing all key aspects of the flight and aircraft operation from the aircrew's perspective, this multi camera shoot programme will introduce you to such systems as the INS (Inertial Navigation System), Selcal which is a selective calling system and is part of the aircraft communications system and many others.

The DVD "747-200 virgin Atlantic" is superb!
I recommend it to you.

Purely because the programme gives such vivid description of a truly classic aircraft.
I also like the fact that all 3 pilots don't get too boring for instance. They explain each instrument in very good detail and don't ramble on about items, which are less important.
I also feel the trio make an excellent job of trying to include factors about flying from a passengers point of view e.g. why you shouldn't drink too much alcohol on a flight etc and this makes the production even better.
Yet another superb programme by ITVV.

Captain Guy Stephenson gives very detailed information about the flight instruments, which was easy to understand. He explained, for instance, how the Inertial Navigation System works and how pilots use it.
First Officer Adrian Thurley and Chief Flight Engineer Alan Bonnick where also very clear when they discussed various systems in the Boeing 747-200 "classic".
I saw that the crew worked as a team, with some humorous moments.
