The newest heavies are ok. However I love the older ones like the majestic
MD-80 . Thanks for the vid.

mcgalcri, there is no significant imbalance. No idea why you even mention a
fuel leak.

Author mcgalcri ( ago)
7:04 Hm... interesting... i see a Fuel unbalance... and 25Kg remain in
center tank... Fuel leak? i hope no!!!

Author Psycho9263 ( ago)
Why is that Mad Dog making that growling noise at climb and every minute or
so? What is that?

Author Josh McCorquodale ( ago)
Just curious as to why the speed was set to 250 on takeoff? I thought that
it was supposed to be set to the V2 speed. Any ideas guys?

Author Richard M ( ago)
Wow! that sucker climbs like a rocket!

Author butchtropic ( ago)
The "Mad Dog" climbs out like a beast!!.

Author vonjuergen ( ago)
is it still the most quiet jet cockpit in history?

Author MileHighClub211 ( ago)
Quick takeoff!

Author javacup912 ( ago)
This is a very good video, but like the comments below, the only reason I
see the long flight to the States is either the airplane was sold, or being
scrapped. Either way, this is probably a ferry flight. By the cockpit
layout, this is either an MD-88 or MD-90, which both still have some life
left. I've ferried DC9/MD-80 before with removable extra tanks in the cargo
bays and in the cabin area on top of the center box, and range was extended
to about 5,00 miles plus. I know we did Hawaii-LAX, and Japan-LAX or SEA.
No ETOPS required for the ferry, so we flew over the open water and hope
the engines stayed healthy, which they did. This is probably the best
airplane ever built, period. And these last MD-8x models had the right
combination of automation and human interaction. I still look up to the sky
when I see one on approach or climbing out, and just watch and go back in
mind to my prime days. Thanks for sharing this and the other videos.

Great video, thank you 

Author oceantrolls73 ( ago)
Probably the only aircraft in the world with such a quiet cockpit. Thanks
for the upload. Enjoyed it.

Author Wayne Phillips ( ago)
Boxes may not complain but they can shift if not properly secured and you
definitely don't want that to happen!

Author brooklyndrive ( ago)
Very quiet cockpit!

Author pilotnicco ( ago)
MD80. It says in the title.

Author john harper ( ago)
what air craft is it 

Author Instructor60666 ( ago)
The buzzing noise are indindicating that the horisontal stabilizer is
moving up or down for trimming.

Author DocterKnockor ( ago)
What is the constant buzzing noise?

Author Steve Marshall ( ago)
Just realized the fuel guages are in kilos LOL

Author Xjazzzi ( ago)
yeah computer fly :P

Author storm reports live ( ago)
AWESOME who filmed this id love to be IN THE COCKPIT filming

Author Andreas Damhaug ( ago)
this is a md 80..

Author AdognamedOp ( ago)
One of the reasons I love watching these videos is because I know one day
these birds will be fully automated and the role of pilot will be further
diminished- we're almost there already. Technology is great but one day
folks will look back at these vids and long for the days when technology
played less a role in flying. But safety and efficiency trump nostalgia,..
for now. :0

Author 46Bax ( ago)
Honestly, wouldnt it just be allsome if you could activate auto pilot, and
just sit in youre lazy pilot couch just watching outside for a few hours
for money? With cargo would be even more allsome, as boxes don't complain

Author delta6325 ( ago)
They are very reliable aircraft if they have an experienced maintenance
crew and pilots. They are also pretty old so they require more downtime for
check than other aircraft. If you look at the safety record most crashes
are maintenance or pilot related and only a hand-full are aircraft defects
or errors. 

Author philglassfan ( ago)
MD stands for Maintenance Disaster

Airbus dont use yokes..they use a fly-by-wire joystick

Author SassyHershsey SassyHershey ( ago)
that's no MD-80 that's an Airbus

Author Otter Pilot ( ago)
next time dont allow youtube to fix the shaking.. it most times make it

Author Eric Lounsberry ( ago)
They don't get so much money... lol

Author artistforrealart ( ago)
Its amazing that airline pilots get so much money...destroying the
airlines...there are so many good boys to want to be pilots...

Author DC8Super72 ( ago)
"Stab Trim In Motion" warning horn was a little overdone by Douglas

Author chemerich ( ago)
MD stands for Mayday

Author Andrew Taylor ( ago)
Most aircraft have a vertical climb out rate between 3500 and 6000ft/min.
Depends on the aircraft.

Author Josef Stalinsson (1870 years ago)
Mmmmmm very good climbing rate 3500ft/m at 214 sp. , i was wrong when my
friend told me that on Fsx he can get 4000ft/m at 230sp with B-747-8j

Author fixitmekanik412 ( ago)
man i was dizzy after watching this video!!!!

"Before long haul flight to Miami."

Author aphil066 ( ago)
Good call 

Author aphil066 ( ago)
309,304 pounds.... 45,220 gallons x 6.84 per gal. 

Author mamiller1980 ( ago)
Its the trim horn.

Author SuperBroomBrooom ( ago)
does anybody know why the engine didnt fire up when he pushed the throttle
lever forward?

Author Chino1994ESA ( ago)
I wanna be a pilot!!! I'm working on it!!!!

Author digital111x ( ago)
what are those buzzer sounds that keep going off?

Author TheAusrali ( ago)
i think it burned 250 pounds

Author jorden SPITTLE ( ago)
because the engines are at the rear

Author Razazi747 ( ago)
thats a really quiet flight deck

Author aphil066 ( ago)
The fuel is in pounds (lbs), not gallons. So it did burn 250 pounds on taxi
and takeoff. JET A weighs 6.84 pounds per gal so it burned 36 gallons in
that time frame. 

Author UnseenCaller ( ago)
I didn't think MD80s had ETOP clearance.

Author jet blue (671 year ago)

Author Bigalinjapan (196 years ago)
Why did they have to secure the throttle alle the time?

Author Psycho9263 ( ago)
The nosewheel tiller.

Author Daniel Morillo ( ago)
EXcelent !! 

Author Elliot Thompson ( ago)
Very beautiful at 4:42

Author afgrocks123 ( ago)
@rockgodpatrick Oh, glad to know.. but i thought the restriction was also
to avoid birdstrike on the windshield with a high speed.. that could result
in a broken windshield..

Author rockgodpatrick ( ago)
@afgrocks123 at 3.00 they were told to climb to FL190 and free speed. Free
speed means they can go whatever speed they want, meaning the 250knots
under Fl100 restriction is removed

Author afgrocks123 ( ago)
How were they at 300 kts below 10,000 ft?

Author David Gravemaker ( ago)
@skydive911 I mean Dusseldorf

Author David Gravemaker ( ago)
@skydive911 Long haul flight? It was a flight from Copenhagen to Paris.
MD80's are still in use for domestic flights and international flights
within Europe by SAS.

Author Skippy585 ( ago)
@xyeahtony1 Right they would have to be spring loaded if you were to use
the pedals for stearing, I can only guess in a way this might be better for
control purpose.

Author EBZR Pilot (43 years ago)
@bigfellakid Oh lol shame shame! I thought they were doing a transit flight
with the MD-80. Didn't think of him as a passenger.

Author bigfellakid (540 years ago)
@skydive911 I think at the lay over they would get on a bigger plane...
That's what I would assume at least. 

Author EBZR Pilot ( ago)
Really nice video but why would you do long haul flights with an MD-80? was
it sold to a south american company or scrapped? I suppose this is not a
scheduled passenger flight?

Author FSXreality ( ago)
@aybam12 I can't help but chip in and state that you are most wrong indeed.
Airliners have a steering 'tiller' because the rudder no good at low speeds
and tight turns. Boeing recommends not using the tiller above 30 knots due
sensitivity/responsive issues (and engine failure). Rudder doesn't become
effective until about 60-80 knots, however. The 80 knots call actually
refers to 'rudder fully responsive'. Rudder deflection is 10 degs on the
ground so not for tight turns.

Author cipmars ( ago)
@999lifegoes A flyie talkie.

Author xyeahtony1 ( ago)
@aybam12 actually it is you who is wrong. Most modern jetliner cockpits
i've been in, 737, 757, 767, 747 all have what is called a "tiller wheel."
Rudder Pedals are much too sensitive to control the nose wheel during a
takeoff run. All aircraft use rudder pedals to steer the nose wheel, but
they also have the tiller wheel to control it as well. Look up Northwest
Flight 85 incident, and the importance of this wheel. 

Author thevidguy11 ( ago)
@aybam12 google it 

Author Ivan Nuñez ( ago)
@thevidguy11 your wrong, no aircraft has a "small steering handle" they all
use rudder pedals. some airbus aircraft might have a flight stick (like a
helicopters control) that is off to the left. but in your case you are

Author thevidguy11 ( ago)
@blueangels5 your wrong, thats only on small aircraft, in the case of the
md-80 and other commercial aircraft there is a small steering handle to the
left of the yolk that hydraulically controls the nose gear. 

Author Connel silence (202 years ago)
are you a pilot ?

Author blueangels5 ( ago)
@anurek123 Via the rudder pedals, these two pedals which control the
aircraft's vertical stabilizer and the nose wheel.

Author Jumpstartation ( ago)
@sixstringmania You need to press a button. Otherwise, how would you talk
in the cockpit?

Author motokid032 ( ago)
So it's ok to just shove the throttles forward like that? I thing slowly
increasing them to match N1 would be more mechanically forgiving?

Author beergut111 ( ago)
@11TreySimons yes i read that too.....but an md80 wont make it from
Dusseldorf to miami

Author Michelle Allum ( ago)
love autopilot conversations . theyre the most random .... these 2 dont
talk at all =(

Author swagmac12 ( ago)
@monsterzeroJr lol MICROSLOTH FRIGHT STIMULATOR lol thats funny

Author Guillermo Vidal ( ago)
@sixstringmania You press a button normally located in your joystick (or
the other).

Author Mark Pajak ( ago)
If you could only hit the reset button when you crash, like we do it in
Microsloth Fright Stimulator...

Author Video game viewer ( ago)
@indiantan it looks like he was changing ether his heading or vertical

Author Charlie Williams ( ago)

Author Einhander49 (463 years ago)
@Erich64x2 Try asking the passengers back there just how quiet it is,

Author Bogdan Mihaescu ( ago)
@sixstringmania You hold down a button on the yoke for the time you're
speaking...It's like a walkie talkie really.

Author mdo686 ( ago)
great vid...nice camera work.
