The fact that this program was available on Blu-Ray and has since been sold out in a VERY short space of time tells us that this is not your ordinary Just Planes video program. While this is the second time that Just Planes has visited Icelandair, this program features some of the most unique moments of flight ever captured by Just Planes.
We begin our journey from Keflavik to New York with a briefing among the flight crew as they discuss important details such as the weather and routing. Once this is completed, we join the First Officer as he takes us on a detailed walk around of the 757-200 which was very enlightening. Other interesting highlights that stood out for our first flight includes a presentation on the cockpit of the 757, history of the 757 at Icelandair, ETOPS and an amazing landing on 13L at KJFK. While the return flight to Keflavik was entertaining, the next most outstanding segment of this program is featured in our flight from Keflavik to Frankfurt which showcased the 757 with upgraded avionics and a closer look at the cockpit preparation and FMS setup that is performed before a flight. Another equally interesting and visually stunning flight takes us from Keflavik to Anchorage which is a 7 hour flight to a region well known for its beautiful landscape.
The final bonus highlight of this program is a beautiful aerial tour of Iceland onboard the private Cessna of one of our Captains from the Frankfurt flight. This aerial tour showcases the lush green and ice capped terrain that is synonymous with Iceland. Ultimately, this program was undeniably one of the best presentations of the 757 ever captured by Just Planes and I think everyone will truly enjoy the insightful presentations from the cockpit and the beautiful scenery from the aircraft. – Highly Recommended!
+ Absolutely fantastic, especially in regards to the isogamic lines of navigation in the north pole.
The private flying of one the Icelander pilots was outstanding, giving us some beautiful views.! Roshawn
+ I enjoyed the video overall especially the flight to new york's J.F.K with the pilot's using the belt parkway canarsie runway 13 left visual approach. I also liked the captains tour over iceland in his own prop airplane. RM
