Landing at 12:50
This video shows you the beautiful arrival and landing to Quito Mariscal Sucre Airport (UIO / SEQM) in Ecuador. We take you inside the cockpit showing what it is like to fly the Boeing 747-400 ERF. Quito is one of the highest elevated airports in the world. It is located between mountains on a hill with a steep canyon on short final creating potentially challenging winds for landing. It is therefore classified as a category C airport, requiring special training for the pilots before being allowed to fly to Quito. Landing was made on runway 36. All ATC and cockpit audio is also included.
Thank you for watching.

Think about all the bad drivers on roads that you see everyday. Can you imagine the day when these same drivers pilot their personal flying cars? Good grief. :)

Anyone can tell us, after landing what first officer off and on the switch, 1-2-3-4-5-8-9.,Why the pilot let him do it. What are they making off, we saw any video cockpit the same way, what is the first officer job as well. From New England. (US).

As you probably know, the Captain & FO normally switch back and forth who is pilot flying and who is pilot monitoring. After landing, 99.5% of the time it is the Captain who does the taxi, so the FO handles most of the after landing items. Things that get done after landing vary a lot depending on the aircraft, weather, darkness, but typical items ... Retract the flaps, retract or secure the spoilers (speed brakes), turn off auto brakes, start the APU (if there will not be ground power at the gate), turn off landing lights, turn on taxi lights, open cabin pressurization dump valve, turn off transponder (once upon a time this was done exiting the runway, more recently this is done at the gate), turn off weather radar, cabin lights on, flight attendant notifications, pitot heat off, engine & wing anti ice off (maybe, depends), engine start switches / ignition switches off. You will probably be asked to change the radio from the tower frequency to the ground controller frequency. At the gate there is set the parking brake (usually Captain), engine cut off switches, generator switches, fuel pumps switches, passenger signs, turn off (electric) hydraulic pumps, turn off transponder (if you didn't already), turn off taxi lights, turn off strobe light, turn off flight director, turn off anti-ice if it wasn't already off, open APU bleed air, open bleed air isolation valve. If the aircraft is to be secured (left unattended) usually you will then need to shut down the APU, possibly turn off another fuel pump or two, turn off air conditioning, turn off window heat, turn off cabin lights, turn off any other lights and goodies, disconnect battery.

God i could never travel in an aeroplane , that bouncing and heeling over at an angle , i would be very travel sick...My loss , great pity that , but it looks wonderful for those that can the way the pilot is continually correcting on the last 100 feet, amazing and very skillful.

Awesome capture cap, like two months ago, we went around just in front of a KLM 744F (taxing in) in Quito, they landed just before we go around, crazy winds, starting with tail changing to head winds on short final, we were in a B767F from Latam Cargo! Keep doing these amazing videos!

This is a honor to watch, honestly. The only 747 that arrives to Quito is a cargo used mostly to export flowers, and I get to see the pilots behind that!? Simply amazing! Also there's some history to this video. If this was really recorded/uploaded on Nov 2019, it means this was one of the first flight they did after a series of riots halted the entire nation and marked a before and after in Ecuador. This is one of the first flights on our new 21st century period.

A friend of mine who is a pilot flew into this airport. The company made him practice the approach in the simulator before they let him do the approach. This is not an airport whos biggest obstacle is a stock of corn.

My friends, that was a NICE landing. gentlemen, the entire crew there, working together, made for a nice flight. i simmed this landing. with this plane lol. at this airport. but added complete engine failure to the mix. so i had to go ap off. wasnt pretty but it survived. i am envious of your occupation, but being as im an amputee ( mrsa) as well as a diabetic, the only way i can get some stick time is with another pilot. in A CESSNA. either that way or using an ultralight. i can fly. bt not ever in this . sooooooooo i enjoy watching these flights uploaded. and i duplicate them on fsx. i rigged my thrustmaster pedals with a loop since ive but one foot. but again tyvm for taking me along.

I thought all ATC instructions were supposed to be in English so that all pilots know what other planes are doing and where they are, unless you spea Spanish you don't know what 80% of the other pilots are saying.

I just did this EXACT aproach in the EXACT same airplane yesterday on a mission in FSX. A coincidence that I now get this randomly suggested on youtube? Highly unlikely... But it is a pretty god damn good suggestion tho I give the YT algorithm that. But how did they know? Spyware on my computer? Tapping on my phone? Creepy...

@yamahonkawazuki You don't really need one honestly, at least not in a few years. The commercially available simulators are pretty bang on. I've tried "real" simulators and the realism is slightly better but the graphics are utter shiet instead. But when FS2020 is released and then with VR in like an index - THAT would be cooler than any real simulator. I guess the controls are better in a real simulator now that i think about it

@OPBjorn I want to get into an actual simulator it is possible but quite pricy
OPBjorn Il y a 4 mois
@yamahonkawazuki I'm pretty sure I could land one of these things in calm weather😬 probably not as smooth as in fsx but how hard could it be lol? I think managing the throttle would be the hardest, and the input from the stick seems to be a lot greater IRL and the plane responding much slower than in a simulator. Would be cool to try tho!

@Stevenson Ramsey Only the old one was one of the highest, the new Mariscal Sucre is in a warm valley well bellow the altitude of Quito. I believe 7000 or 6000 feet asl but not sure. The old one was 9000 going 10000 feet.

Nice landing !! I was waiting for the "challenging" part to come in, but it never did. High terrain in all quadrants....maybe like landing at Telluride (KTEX) or Aspen (KASE). The RW is 13,450' long and 200' wide. Field elevation 8,700'. I don't fly 747-400's so I guess I just don't "get it."

It will always look this 'bumpy' when the camera is hand-held. Take a look at any other 747 landing that is filmed with a hand-held camera - exactly the same.
