    About Captain David Rowland
    Captain David Rowland is married with two sons and lives in North Oxfordshire. After basic training he joined BA (BOAC) in 1969 and became a Co-Pilot/Navigator on VC10s. In 1976 he joined the Concorde fleet. In 1993 he became Commercial Manager Concorde, responsible to Regional General Manager, Americas for the Concorde business in British Airways, and later combined the operational and commercial management role as General Manager Concorde.

    In total David has over 10,000 flying hours, most of which are supersonic. In 1995 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, and is a Member of the Royal Institute of Navigation. He is a long term member of the Duxford Aviation Society, and in his spare time, enjoys going to the theatre, walking, reading, listening to music, playing golf and tennis (neither very well!).

    Over 1.5 Million Supersonic Passengers
    Concorde was the only supersonic passenger airliner in the world and British Airways was one of only two airlines operating this flagship of the worlds civil aviation fleet. A Over 1.5 million passengers have flown supersonically on board British Airways seven strong Concorde fleet since they entered commercial service on January 21st 1976. Cruising at 1,350mph, twice the speed of sound, a typical transatlantic crossing took less than three and a half hours.

    Concorde flew above all the weather and her passenger cabin was pressurised to a more comfortable level than on subsonic aircraft, reducing flight fatigue still further. Since entering service, British Airways Concordes have operated some 40,000 flights. Concorde's fastest yet transatlantic crossing was on February 7th 1996, when she completed the New York to London flight in 2 hours 52 minutes and 59 seconds, over 40 minutes faster than schedule.

    The small number of dedicated flight crews that flew this superb aircraft were drawn from the best and most experienced that British Airways had to offer and have more supersonic flight time than any of the pilots of the world's Air Forces!

We then go out to the aircraft (PH-MCS) for the start of our journey from Amsterdam (EHAM) to Palma de Mallorca (LEPA). Departure is from Amsterdam's Schiphol airport using runway 19L on a Lekko SID, call sign Martinair 341.

    Ruud explains in great detail the whole departure as he is actually flying it. Once settled in the cruise at 37,000 feet, Ruud introduces you to the FCP (Flight Control Panel), FMA (Flight Mode Annunciator), FMC (Flight Management Computer), FMS (Flight Management System), Climb Thrust and Pitch, Pilot Selection Mode verses FMS Mode, Nav Mode, PFD (Primary Flight Display), PLI (Pitch Limit Indicator), and FPA (Flight Path Angle).

    We then follow Ruud and Robert in the descent and make an approach to Palma de Mallorca using runway 24L. Hear the Air Traffic Control for the flights and follow the checklists as you discover this state of the art aircraft from a very privileged perspective from the flightdeck!

    About Captain Ruud Bakker
    Captain Ruud Bakker, Martinair's Senior Chief Pilot, was born on August 24, 1954 in Haarlem, The Netherlands. Ruud started his flight training in September 1973 at the Government Aviation School (RLS, Rijksluchtvaart school) in Eelde, The Netherlands, where he flew the C-150, Saab-Safir and C-500. He finished school in May 1976 with a CPL, theoretical ATPL and a C-500 rating. From May 1976 Ruud flew sightseeing trips in a C-172. In September that year he left for Kenya and briefly flew part time for "Sight by Wings", an organisation that transports eye-doctors to places in Kenya, Tanzania, Sudan and the Comores Islands.

    In March 1977 Ruud returned to The Netherlands to take up an invitation by Martinair's Director of Flight Operations to start a job as crew-scheduler, with the option of getting a job as a pilot as soon as a vacancy became available. During September 1977 Ruud started as a co-pilot on the DC-9-30 and in February 1979 a co-pilot on the DC-10-30 and progressed in May 1986 to his first captaincy on the A310-200.

    From 1987 he became a TRI (instructor), and in 1988 a chief-instructor, from 1990 till the end of 1993 he also became chief pilot. In 1994 Ruud helped prepare Martinair for the introduction of the MD-11, along with his MD-11 training with Swissair which lead him on to a position as chief instructor on the MD-11 Fleet.

    In January 1997 he was made chief-pilot MD-11 Fleet and in September 1999 he became Martinair's Senior Chief Pilot. Ruud is married and has two children.

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.

Hi just to let you know that the First Officer Adrian Thurley in now a Captain with Virgin Atlantic on the Boeing 747-400

James Vaughan

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.

Thierry Lejeune

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.

Sam Quinnell

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.

What a great DVD!!!

It's my first one after the Concorde and I must say that it's amazing!!!

Just incredible that they describe everything in the classical B747 cockpit!! And great camera work on takeoff and landing!

Also great to hear everybody in the cockpit saying something before and during the flight.

Great job from ITVV!!!

Patrik Kaczmarek

This programme is quite underrated in my opinion.

Sure it is not as detailed and perfect as the Virgin 747-400 one, but it still is up there among the best produced to date.

I find that the ATC treatment is satisfactory. You hear all communications loud and clear, and you have a very good idea of the activity on the flightdeck after take off.

The flightdeck itself is very well filmed, the external views are good, and the editing is just what it should be. There are not that many programmes about steam gauges jumbos, at least not one as good as this one.

The Captain is lovable, the "aerobatic" co-pilot too, and the flight engineer is a delight to listen to and watch.

Quite a funny, "so British", trio, really.

There's a lot to watch and hear as the pilots do their things in front of us.

Benjamin Tainturier

Dear ITVV

Congratulations for such an impressively filmed programme.

Well done for such a good quality programme.
