As is the norm, our first leg of our trip starts off with a Briefing and walk around presentation by the Captain. After the walk around is completed, we join the crew in the flight deck for cockpit preparation and engine start. Highlights of our first trip to Banjul, Gambia include various cockpit camera views, cabin service and a wonderful view of Morocco and the Atlas Mountains while in cruise. Finally, the viewers are given a brief presentation by the Purser as she talks about her role during the flight.

Our second leg from Banjul to Conakry, Guinea includes take off from two camera views and visual approach which includes a flyover the runway to join downwind. Our return leg to Banjul was flown by the First Officer and this flight featured a departure at dusk with hazy skies and a dimly lit terrain below. While in the cruise, thunderstorms can be seen in the distance through the cockpit window.

One of the main highlights of this DVD came after our landing in Banjul. After the landing viewers are taken on a day tour of Banjul accompanied with lovely African styled music. The tour included market places, shopping areas, sea side fishing activities and a display of local crafts. This portion of the DVD can easily make anyone build a desire to some day visit this interesting country.

Our final highlight comes from our return trip from Banjul to Brussels. On this leg of our trip it features a detailed cockpit presentation of the A330 which I found enlightening and I am sure Airbus fans will enjoy it just the same. Overall this DVD was fun to watch and I would definitely give it a second viewing in the future.  Reviewed by AvSim

I enjoyed watching the Brussels Airlines A330-300 DVD. Captain Coupez (who was the Captain on SN 208 on the SN Brussels Airlines DVD), along with his First Officer and the Purser does a wonderful job keeping the viewers entertained. Great cockpit scenes, cabin scenes, as well as the scenery, including scenes of Banjul & The Gambia. My complements to Brussels Airlines for allowing Just Planes to film this DVD, as well as demonstrating, to everyone that has watched this DVD, that Brussels Airlines is a very professional airline.
Please note that on the Brussels Airlines A330-300 DVD, OO-SFN, featured on SN 223 (BRU-BJL-CKY) and SN 224 (CKY-BJL); was the A330-300 featured in Flight in the Cockpit 21, featuring Sabena Airlines - (BOS-BRU); and was one of the A330-300s featured on the WAR DVD, featuring SN Brussels Airlines – (BRU-FNA-ABJ-BRU). This is the first time that a particular aircraft was featured on three different programs with three different airlines.
I already have all of the DVDs above, and recommend that all of your viewers buy them. John McCreery, USA

Captain Coupez obviously loves his job! This DVD gives the viewer a detailed picture of Brussels Airline and their A330 operations. My favourite part of this DVD was the fantastic approach into Banjul, Gambia. The amazing video quality and the numerous camera angles in the flight deck provide a great view of the exotic destinations featured in this program. Great job Just Planes! Kristof Barocz, CANADA
