World Air Routes has a long standing cooperation with the TUI Group. Having already filmed the group's airlines in Germany, France, Belgium and Scandinavia ; Holland is the 5th country in the group to join the series.
You will fly the Arkefly B737-800 on a medium haul route to Portugal and Spain. Your crew is very detailed in all their presentations before and during the flights with briefings, checklists, walkaround, cockpit presentation, flight information and much more... You then fly the B767-300 to 3 destinations in the Caribbean. In total this 4 hour program features 14 takeoffs and landings, lots of scenery, cabin service views and more.
This is by far the most extensive pre flight preparation footage of any WAR DVD I own (119 and counting!). It also has a complete pre flight, flight deck preparation in the 737NG. Awesome work WAR team!

The program is unique in that the the two main producers of the WAR series Udo Schaefer and Tommy Morgan both produced a section of this program.
I have to say the star of this production was SFO Koen Kouwenberg on the 737-800. He gave us a very detailed look of the preparation of the flight; along with Capt Van Zijtveld they gave us a memorable flight to Malaga and then on to Faro. With Udo to capture the whole experience it was a magical experience.
We have seen the 767 in operation before but Tommy managed to show us even more, for example what the pilot/engineer needs to check before an ETOPS flight.

A newly acquired 737 (Reg. PH-TFB) was the main attraction for this program. This was by far the most extensive pre-flight and cockpit preparation procedures recorded. I commend Capt. Van Zijtveld and F/O Kouwenberg for their professionalism and very good presentation. The F/O conducted a good walkaround at Faro. The best part was the CAT-IIIA autolanding at Schipol runway 27 (done for training purposes), taking the decision height as low as 50 feet AGL, unfortunately the PFD/ND were not shown at that time. For the second half of the program, the 767 was presented, but not in detail. The CUR-BON leg, which lasted for only 14 minutes, was the shortest 767 flight I've seen on Just Planes. This DVD is recommended for people who love the 737 NG. Rating at 4/5 stars. Roy Joven Benzonan, UAE
What a great DVD, the cockpit presentation by F/O Kouwenberg quite impressive. Great work again WAR. Marcel Laroche, CANADA
