Unguided Tupolev Tu-154

The following video (actually 3 episodes) is impossible to watch without flinching.

Before viewing I want to explain some facts:

1. This video was shot last week (29/04/2011).

2. This flight for this aircraft was the first after a decade of conservation.

3. Tupolev 154 is enough big plane: three-engine, upto 100,000 kg take-off weight, it carries upto 160-180 passengers.

P.S. Similar aircraft crashed at Smolensk North Airport on April 10, 2010, killing all on board, including the Polish President (Lech Kaczy?ski).

1. Takeoff:

2. Turn:

3. Landing:

I think the pilots are real heroes and men with nerves of steel!

Interesting, when did they fly the next time? Did some of the pilots give up this work?
