This channel is about stuff I'm interested in, and you will be too.
From viewer Bob Frazier on my Oroville Dam series-
"Juan, I think you've demonstrated the true power of the fourth estate - reporting information, facts, observations, and informing the public. Nobody has to watch unless they're interested, but thousands of us bystanders are, and we thank you. "TV News" can't do what you've done, they don't have the time, but you really did show how powerful a smart capable person with a camera can be. It amazes me how much more information you covered than anyone - and without drama or sensationalism. Thank you!"

    Why didn't the Max crash with America or European crews flying them? The aircraft was flyable.... ASSUMING it was flown by somebody with a lick of air sense. "autopilot disconnect". Did the aircraft malfunction with American crews flying them? Yes. Did they crash? No. (According to news reports in the USA, soon after engaging the autopilot on Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, the nose tilted down sharply. In both cases, they recovered quickly after disconnecting the autopilot.) Duh? Neither crew, the Lion Air or Ethiopian Airlines, appeared to know the FIRST thing about emergency procedures . The MCAS system on the 737-Max was not designed with a sufficient level of redundancy and fault-tolerance to handle that failure. American crews can handle it..other less trained crews cannot. Just a few thoughts from a retired Boeing guy...carry on. Hope we don't let Boeing off of this too easy...they screwed the pooch.

    Left of centerline is akin, but opposite to runway behind you and altitude and airspeed you don’t have. Putting yourself in the best place you can at touchdown is a little added insurance. If he get a huge gust at touchdown he has time to get the nose down and get it back in control before the grass gets too close on the right side. Also, while brick one landings are a bad idea in gusty winds I bet a short wet runway looks a lot better from the approach end versus 1500 to 2000 down from it. I noticed that he held the left wing down all the way to the end. Good job!

    Did that very left cross wind at Terranaut Indiana RW 4 (Now 5) minus Rain after an ice storm the previous night, with RW Sanded only breaking fair in a Cherokee 6. I found out why the Tower had me taxi back on the RW when I turned on to the RW exit toward the Ramp the wind started blowing the plane sideways toward the 6' snow banks #00 HP and a great big prop kept it going straight.. Question: In crosswind landing le this, in small SE land, I was always taught that ounce on the ground to hold the up wind aileron full into the wind. Doesn't look like that applies in a B-737 NG. Thanks for another great Video.

    One of the interesting things I notice (as a non-pilot) about both this video and your landings in the Luscombe, is how dramatically the stick gets moved during the descent. It's honestly kind of scary since the only similar experience I have is driving a car, and you just don't do that to your steering wheel! How does the sensitivity of the stick work?

    Mr. Brown, congratulations on the good news regarding your medical condition, and it seems to show in your face and voice. For the last several videos, your face seemed drawn and haggard, whether from the stress and worry about what the results would be, or from having to report on all of the bad news of the recent spate of crashes, (and perhaps knowing the crewmembers who perished in the C-130 fire tanker crash), or what seems to be the daily revelations coming from Boeing. In this video, you answered a question even before I could ask, as you explained that it was a "video anomaly" making at least two of the gauges flicker. Your recent video about the Oroville Lake level, and the lack of rain was also interesting, although you did not mention if the media were still in a panic over "The Great Green Spot", which they have made out to be as large as the "Giant Red Spot" on Jupiter.

    Great vid JB. I've always loved aeroplanes and have been a wannabe pilot as you may have guessed from my previous comments and questions. I personally feel (my most humble opinion) that filming from inside the cockpit would/could benefit training and may complement the on board recorders (CVR/FDR) in the event of an incident. Take care and be safe. 🙏

    You see how much yoke work he's doing, I'll bet his feet were dancing on that rudder too. how many folks that were watching him land this plane we're trying to talk him down in their minds? Easy, easy, down, down, straighten out, flare! Nailed it! No I am not a pilot. No I don't profess to be a pilot. Juan this is a truly excellent video. Great explanation of what the pilot is looking at in the cockpit or the front office! Now I'm left to wonderwhat the heck was going on on that Turkish plane if they have all those alarms and everything going.what I thought was a bungled landing in Turkey is turning out to be sheer stupidity if they had this level of automation in the cockpit.

    With about 2,000 hours equally now in the 737-2/3/4 (freighter-converted) and my own Luscombe 8E, I've found the 737 to handle maximal crosswind takeoffs and landings excellently into and out of the various 5,900-6,500 feet-long out-station runways within Alaska. And the "Classic"-series (pre-NG) wipers are louder and less operationally refined than seen here in the NG; why it has taken four decades for the windshield wiper system to approach 1980s-automotive-level refinement remains somewhat elusive.

    When I was flying as a passenger a lot in NZ due to work I loved the small planes due to being able from the seat closest to the cock-pit to see what the co-pilot and the pilot doing while landing or on take-off, they had a curtain to separate them from view but most of the time didn't which was great these were only 17seats max.

    We had flown out to Southern California in our C210 to see our son and I had him in the left seat for some complex aircraft time. He had a private ticket in both SEL and Gliders but had flown very little in the past several years, first college and then as a busy doctor. We had flown out to Catalina Island for lunch and found a direct cross wind of about 20 kts. If you've ever landed there you know the strange runway sight picture on final. He was fighting his way down and about a quarter mile out he said, "OK Dad, it's your airplane!" I really appreciated the high wings and wide stance on that landing. A guy in a Bonanza behind us gave up after three tries and went back to the mainland.

    The glider port i flew out of had a runway that ran perpendicular to the face of the Hill that we used to run for ridge lift. So if the wind was straight down the runway, take off and Landing was super easy but you didn't get to fly for very long. But on the other side of that coin if the wind was blowing a gale you can stay up all day but by the time you got back you were super tired from running the hill and you probably had to deal with a huge crosswind. With the added bonus of only getting one shot at it.... No go arounds. Thats why i always tell people i can land anywhere....... once. Full slips to a crosswind landing were the norm. I used to make people sick by changing from a left slip to a right slip on approach. Only friends that said they never get sick and would bet me i coukdnt make them queasy. Id let them think they made it, then WAMMO!
