B747-400 VIR - DVD PAL
Sunny Thomas This customer purchased the item at our site.
The 747 is my favourite airplane and this had been the very first DVD I had bought.
But I just bought a programme of a UA777 from London to Chicago from another company, and I must say I was very disappointed. The sound was bad, you couldn't hear air traffic control, explanations were limited at best, etc..
When I bought the DVD, I was expecting the same hi quality standards set by ITVV.
I will only buy ITVV again!

Captain Alan Carter, F/O Alan Rattigan and F/O John Cullom explain the instrumentation in a relaxed, understandable yet detailed manner.
The sound quality and interior and exterior views of the aircraft are superb and cockpit views of the scenery below are great.
From briefing to walk around to take-off & taxi to stand is superb and highlighted flight check list add to the enjoyment.
Excellent ITVV - a new discovery with every watch, a compelling programme giving the feeling of actually being there.

I have both the Virgin 747 & Cathay Pacific 747 programme's and both are just the very, very best.
I have simply lost count of how many times I have watched both of them.
Congratulations to the makers of these programme's and particularly to Capt's Carter & Grange.
They are just a joy to watch!

It answered a lot of questions, and showed what was needed to operate such a beautiful aircraft.
The lucky pilots were extremely good and explained the systems very well (now I know what all those buttons do!).
Especially enjoyed the approach and landing, plus looking at the charts beforehand.
I am getting another programme for my 16th birthday- can't wait.
PS. Love the music

By the way the weather is also good so the visual is excellent especially over Greenland and on the decent in to San Fran.

ITVV has done a great job of explaining the 747-400 and it is very thorough.
Sound quality is excellent.
The checklists on the screen are very pleasing along with the departure and landing charts.
This is a must for all serious aviation enthusiasts.
David Zhang This customer purchased the item at our site.
It is very informative and entertaining.
I have long wanted to see a Program like that and have wasted more than $100 on worthless poor quality programs from other companies.
Comparing with your DVD, theirs are completely amateur level programs.
I hope you can do a better marketing job in the US so the poor quality products would not rip off consumers like me.
I like the following features in your DVD:
Multiple cameras, low background noise, clear ATC communications, clear procedure executions, nice explanations etc.
Thanks for producing such a series of perfect DVDs that are exactly what I need.
Ron McLellan This customer purchased the item at our site.
As a 747 enthusiast, and a flight simmer, this DVD is the ultimate and makes me feel like I am on the flight deck with Capt. Carter.
His meticulous explanation of every detail that goes into a typical flight is unparalleled.
Even if you're not an aviation enthusiast or a pilot wannabe, you will enjoy this DVD.
As a program editor myself, I was blown away by the production quality and content of ITVV and have added several of their titles to my collection.
But this programme in particular is the best.... I watch it over and over and over and learn something new every time. I
I'm off to watch it again....
Rod Pommier, M.D. This customer purchased the item at our site.
The 747-400 is such an amazing aircraft that it cannot be completely covered in one programme.
This programme covers additional information about flight planning with such a large aircraft, and has additional information about the many systems on the aircraft that are not covered in the Cathay Pacific programme.
Together, the two programmes provide a comprehensive coverage of operating a 747-400.
Neither should be missed.
Andy Hefferon This customer purchased the item at our site.
I would just like to say that I have enjoyed all your programs and especially the virgin 747-400 flight to San Francisco.
The whole package was excellent and I have watched it (to my wife's annoyance) many times.
Well done to all concerned.
Dave Hollingsworth This customer purchased the item at our site.
Truly unparalleled in every aspect.....
Congratulations too, to your sales division, who shipped this programme half way around the world within 5 working days of my internet order.
TK This customer purchased the item at our site.
I would recommend it to anyone who would like to see an in-depth explanation of the pre-flight and in-flight procedures, as well as a walk-through of the aircraft systems.
The programme has the detailed "behind-the-scenes" information that I had been unable to find on non-ITVV programmes, as well as excellent camera work, which exceeds all expectations for the subject matter, and it's over 2-and-a-quarter hours long!
I'm completely satisfied with my purchase.

My aircraft of choice is the Quantas 747-400 by Phoenix Simulation Software.
I ordered your Platinum Edition Virgin Atlantic Airways Boeing 747-400 as soon as you made the announcement of its release. As usual, ITVV is quantum leaps above all others.
Phoenix Simulation provides, along with their software, an excellent manual (including pictures, charts and graphs) very interesting reading and study material. However, when I popped the VA Airways programme in ye ole machine, everything came full circle.
This programme is not only very informative, but also entertaining.
The people orientated personality of all three pilots is projected very clearly. I hope they have access to the comments made by all their viewers.
The technology very innovative, unequalled! The cinematography is crisp and clear...I do not recall any out-of-focus scenes. The colour puts you right on the fight deck. Your programme equipment is top notch.
The flight deck is a very hostile environment to shoot programme close quarters, unreliable lighting conditions (from low light and shadows to glaring sunlight outside plus glare and reflections on the LCD's). It seems that if there was any of these problems, your editors left them on the cutting room floor.
I have come to expect these high standards from ITVV.

The controls were explained very well and clear.
Keep up the good work ITVV!
I recommend this one for everybody.
Definitely not one to be missed.
There's very good picture and sound, well done for producing an excellent programme!
