During the whole flight the spectator will receive useful information about the cockpit preparation of the cabin, walkaround near the plane, exclusive explanations about all the buttons and instruments in the cabin. All the action is caught by multiple cameras located in different places – at the terminals, in the pilot cabin, in the main passenger salon and on the ground. The flight duration is approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes to Varna and back to Zurich. Actually the both cabins of B- 757 and B-767 are almost similar which makes the pilots operate easily the both planes with no need of extra training.

excellent insight into operations in/out Zürich
Airport with the new Midfield Dock E. Nice early
morning departure from Zurich with the sun coming up over
Austria. Visual approaches into Heraklion and Korfu show
that hand-flying can be lots of fun, even in modern airline
environment. Very special that the crew had the cockpit
window open during taxi-in so the engine sound could be
heard. Great view of ZRH from high above during descent
from the south.
Belair DVD is another first-rate program! As well as being
introduced to an airline I'd never heard of before, I
enjoyed seeing the operation of the Boeing aircraft and the
interesting presentation of the 767. The filming was
excellent and captured the flights nicely, allowing the
viewer to feel as though they are actually onboard
themselves. Thank-you Just Planes! Luke
week I received the DVD featuring Belair (757 & 767). So
far I have enjoyed it - especially the takeoffs and landings
into Zurich. The scene of Venice was excellent too. I hope
Justplanes will release more DVDs featuring flights in and
out of Zurich and more scenes of Venice.
