‘PilotsEYE.tv’ Video Series Feature SWISS A330 and Lufthansa A380

PilotsEye.tv has available 2 documentaries covering a SWISS A330 flight between Zurich and Miami, and a roundtrip of a Lufthansa A380 between Frankfurt and San Francisco.

The SWISS A330 video released just in the past few weeks, provides over 2 hours of coverage including preflight and cockpit footage as well as footage from the Miami area including a visit to the SWISS Air Academy.   Highlights of the video include a distress call from a nearby Delta aircraft, Thunderstorm departure and a look at ETOPS planning for flights over water.  Here’s a teaser:

 

In addition to the video, PilotsEye.tv offers a Flight briefing document that covers the flight and provides all the details including the flight plan, copies of the documents used by the crew for the flight, and other interesting facts from the flight.  The video is available in DVD formats or as ‘Video On Demand’ via the PilotsEye.tv site.

A380 To SFO….

In their other ‘LH Group’ inspired release,  they cover a Lufthansa flight between Frankfurt and San Francisco aboard a Lufthansa A380.   One of the highlights of this edition is the retirement of Jürgen Raps, one of LH’s most senior captains.  Other features of this video include highlights from the crew break in San Francisco including a cruise beneath the Golden Gate as well as flight planning to avoid an angry volcano which led to a rare view of Greenland.

This video also covers the return flight of the A380 since it is the Captain’s last flight.  Since it was his ‘retirement flight’ the aircraft was greeted with a Water Cannon salute upon arrival in Frankfurt.  Like the SWISS video, this also has a comprehensive Flight Briefing document that provides a great detail of information regarding the flight.  The video is available on DVD formats as well or as ‘Video On Demand’ from the PilotsEYE.tv website.

In addition to these LH Group features, they also documented the delivery flight of a Lufthansa Cargo 777F back in 2015.  I’m kind of partial to this one because they used some of my footage in their documentary:

 


 

LUFTHANSA Brings Back Munich – Miami!

LUFTHANSA Brings Back Munich – Miami!

 

In case you missed this week’s announcement, Lufthansa will begin service between Munich and Miami starting on December 2, 2014.    Based on the current timetable, plans call for 5 day a week service (except Monday and Friday).   What’s even better is that this will be flown by a 3-class Airbus A330 so you’ll get you experience the new First Class cabin as well as the new Business Class cabin.    This route is expected to last until the Winter Timetable closes on April 30, 2015.

 

The details of the flights are as follows (all times local):

LH460 will depart Munich at 11:45a and arrive in Miami at 5:15p  (Scheduled for 11 hrs. 30 min).

LH461 will depart Miami at 6:55p and arrive the following morning in Munich at 10:25a (Scheduled for 9 hrs. 30 min).

 

Booking for this new flight is available now.
