I ordered my DVD on Friday, the person taking my order was very nice, and he said it would be on my doorstep either the next morning or Monday, can you believe it, it came the next morning, very excellent service.

The DVD was fab, soon I'm going to get the 747-400, I also can't congratulate ITVV enough for a great job they have done.

Thank you at ITVV for this one, the DVD arrived very quickly.

The DVD "747-200 virgin Atlantic" is superb!

I recommend it to you.

Personally I regard this programme as my favourite.

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.

Philip de Kemp This customer purchased the item at our site.

I really enjoyed watching this flight operation with the Boeing 747-200 "classic".

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.
