Big plane, short runway - Cockpit Tales

Sint Maarten has one of the most challenging runways in the world. Join Captain ten Velde on board of a flight to this tropical island. Being a pilot must be an absolutely amazing career despite the crazy amount of challenges. They have my every respect for how talented they are. I hav flown by KLM at lest 20 times on  lnternational flights n always enjoyed my flights.The crew n especially the Pilots were extremely thorough in their announcements.Deep respects to all the pilots world over. I've seen many many videos on commercial air travel from the cockpit POV. This was excellent. Sadly, we will never fly the 747 to St. Maarten again. But thankfully it's documented for eternity. As a St. Maarten Airport specialist, all I can say is, that this is a superbly made video with great shots and lots of interesting information. What's still missing are some interesting jet blast shots at the fence on Maho Beach during takeoff, where you can see what's going on behind this huge plane. What a fantastic view from the cockpit!  It must be one of the greatest feelings to be a pilot and fly a gigantic aircraft right in the middle of the firmaments.
