Worldflight 2010


The over 1,000 photos come in several albums. These are more or less in the correct time order, but with so many people making photos and only once in a while downloading them into the Media Box, the chronological order got screwed up a bit.

It can be noticed that video production has become a commodity by now...

↑ The group-wide general introduction to Worldflight 2010. This video shows a mix of several of the participating simulators, using footage from several years.

↑ Video blog one shows the start in Sydney and footage of the first few long legs over the Pacific and North-America.

↑ In video blog two, we mainly show how incredibly boring many legs actually are. The action is at the departure and arrival, but in between, especially the ocean flights are just plain brain-dead unless you keep yourself busy in between the weather checks and position reports.

↑ Video blog three tracks us into Africa. We started receiving TV crews on the flight deck. To get some more action, we introduced some aircraft malfunctions to a bored crew and saw how they neatly worked themselves out of it al.

↑ From Africa via the Middle-East to Europe. Featuring David Twittenborough presenting his special documentary "Life on the Flight Deck," the UK World Flight Support vehicle, and an unknown flight engineer.

↑ Our resident real-life 747-400 captain Jon Bunting earmarked this video as "nearly impossible to spot that this is a simulator."

↑ Captain Hoppie and First Officer John take the Queen into Mumbai (part I).

↑ Captain Hoppie and First Officer John take the Queen into Mumbai (part II).

↑ The crew of Speedbird 744 shows the world how good they are at flying on instuments.

↑ While in Egyptian airspace, a TV crew from the Brazilian TV Globo programme Fantástico took a lot of footage to produce a nice 4.5-minute feature about Worldflight in general and the UK team in particular.

World Flight 2007 Videos and Media Events

As time goes by, media exposure grows. I collect several noteworthy links to media events over here, without claiming to be exhaustive. And also the many private videos now being produced from WF footage.

Going Around! While on final approach, the crew of World Flight USA (Shamrock 224) gets a surprise and decides to call it quits. The licence plate of the offender is just visible :-)
