This was scheduled early yesterday.
First of all, for those who have not seen these, they’re not recommended for anyone about to take a flight. Nor am I having a go at Airbus, that was not the issue here.
Before getting down to it, one most annoying thing these uploaders do, apart from ads dropped in, even in mid-conversation, is clickbaiting. It proclaimed it was the world’s most dangerous airport. During the video though, it said it was second most dangerous and here it says something else:
Just as a matter of interest, this was on Google:
Here are five of the most dangerous airports in the world, as compiled by MSN:
- Lukla Airport, Nepal.
- Madeira Airport, Portugal.
- Courchevel International Airport, France.
- Barra Airport, Scotland. hopeblamireartist. …
- McMurdo Station, Antarctica.
Not a big deal but still a misrepresentation and unnecessary. Such things only put a person of a channel or series.
A second annoying aspect was that the maker was deliberately defensive on one episode – he wrote that he’d put a lot of work into this, you know. Bizarre thing to write, then – hope you enjoy it. Again – a minor thing but somehow annoying.
Having said that, the graphics were, as many have stated, excellent and the conclusions reasonable.
How complex flight is, even in this day and age – it wasn’t just the dangerous approach but a whole host of factors, including gross weight.
