Filmed in 1999 - Released in 2000

This program was first released on VHS in 2000 and now makes its way to DVD in 2008.

First you are in for a bit of history flying the B747-400, which no longer operates with Air Namibia, from WIndhoek to London Heathrow via Lusaka and back from Frankfurt to Windhoek.   That is followed by a series of flights on the B737-200 from Windhoek to Cape Town via Walvis Bay. On the way back the weather into Windhoek is very bad forcing the aircraft to miss the approach twice and go-around. A diversion is made to Eros where the 737 will make its first ever landing.

In 2000 I bought the South African Airways VHS on the A300, B737-800, B747-SP and B747-400. It was an excellent video, both of SAA and parts of the world I had never been to. The highlight of the video was on the 747-400 CPT-LHR flight. Captain Jensen's professionalism and passion for flying was evident and I wish there were more pilots like him.
In 2011 you offered the Buy 1 DVD Get 1 Free. I ordered the South African Airways DVD along with this one. I am not very familiar with Air Namibia so it was interesting to fly to parts of the world I have not been to. (I have not been anywhere in Africa). I especially appreciated the walk around on the 747-400 and the shots of the aft cargo compartment. I have flown on several 747 Combis, but have never seen the inside of the cargo compartment, so I appreciated seeing it along with the walk around.
This DVD was different in that the pilots did not talk other than performing their duties. But it's nice just to watch them as they do their duties and you get a better idea of what actually goes on in the cockpit during flight.
The double go around on the 737-200 was also interesting. One go around is unusual; you got two of them.
Please put out more specials like this Buy 1 DVD and Get One Free. I will surely take advantage of it.  And thank you for another excellent DVD.  Michael Karpf, CANADA

The two attempted landings into Windhoek during the deluge are worth the price of this DVD on it's own. Kudos' to Cpt. Rabie for taking two stabs at her! My knuckles got white just watching him.   Al Stiff, CANADA

I bought the Air Namibia Boeing 747SP video and the Air Namibia Boeing 747-400 & Boeing 737-200 (when it was first released on VHS in 2000). I enjoyed both videos. I strongly recommend the Air Namibia DVD.
