A fun Sunday vid you need to see!

[RealWorld Aviation] I came across this video via our YouTube page this week and I have been totally hooked! American Airlines 757 Captain: Kent Wien loves to bring his camera on board his flights and he really enjoys giving viewers an inside look at his life between sorties. Here is a very funny video featuring the classic MD-80. Very personal to me as my very first flight was on-board an American MD-80 as a kid! Also thanks to our followers, our Facebook page is now nearly 700 likes as ADX pushes close to 4Million pageviews! Thanks for being a part of us every day! Happy Sunday!

Anyone else know about the compass mirror thing? I laughed so hard. I still can't believe MD made it like that!

I am hoping to meet this guy. I have a lot of friends at American.

The mirror and the compass are hardly unveliable, I couldn't close my mouth while watching... well, simmers have know a something new to simulate :)

IIRC this guy's family has an interesting background. They used to run Wien Air, which was one of the great pioneers of Alaskan air travel.

His blog posts are on Gadling, which I've followed for quite a few years now.

I saw one of his videos before (the retirement flight - A must watch, btw). Time to dust off the old Leonardo Mad Dog a go for a hop around the skies of FS9.

That was my thought as well (even though in FSX). And after a few hops it feels great again. It is a wonderful plane - yes, the graphics are a little bit dated - but this plane really has character and the systems are top notch. So sad they stopped supporting it.....
