Actually, you link is better than mine! I think they posted a number of smaller segments on Facebook, but what you have appears to be all of them patched together.

Great video, Thomas! She definitely prefers that nose down attitude (looked like back pressure was relaxed for a moment right after takeoff and her nose dipped). And man that’s a lot of oil being burned on the start! I do miss that aircraft in P3Dv4. Probably not a chance they will ever make it to the left coast. Thanks for linking the video! 😀👍

Given the rare status of this aircraft, I hope someone with the skill and equipment records a flight, from planning, walk-around, preflight cockpit preparations, start-up and flight with an emphasis on pilot and flight engineer. I mean, theres got to be at least 10 videos dealing with the 737 alone...

Thanks for this great link.
I am considering buying a semi pro camera to start shooting some a bit more serious photos.
I heard that the Nikon D50 is a very good one to start with, but I read the specs of it saying "no optical&digital zoom", does this mean I can not shoot photos with zooming? Or will I be able to do this with a special lens? Also, are there any other recommendations for cameras with a similar spec&price range? Buying a camera for the first time, what add-ons do you think I shall need? A tripod, some lenses?
Lastly, where do you think I can buy a camera the cheapest? I will be able to get someone to buy for me in mainland China, Hong Kong, US or UK. Thanks very much for your attentions, any comments appreciated!

Best Regards
:D
