    I'll start out this thread with a nice video of a series of private/business jets from members over on www.YachtForums.com

    This Gulfstream came pretty close to clipping the perimeter fence at SXM, St. Maarten while on final, that could have been disastrous...

    Good idea Ron. I've run across a number of good videos, but failed to bookmark them. I've moved this thread to the General Aviation Discussion forum.

    A nice bit of history here, the first ever flight of the G650. The first experimental plane with an appropriate reg. number, N650GA.

    Not a private or business jet, but a video of a take off gone bad.

    I should have been flying the plane that day, but the Captain covered for me so I could go sailing to the Bahamas.
    All 5 onboard escaped without serious injuries..

    A few weeks later I flew another 747 down there to take some salvaged bits and pieces back including 2 of the engines.
    The airplane was scrapped...

    They blew an engine right at V1 and started the abort late and were late pulling reverse. Heavy airplane, wet runway, tired crew...Real life conditions.

    Too bad, that was my favorite airplane, flew it quite a bit from Anchorage to Inchan in South Korea and occasionally to China.

    I was sailing in the Exumas when it happened, got a call on the SSB radio from my boss, told me to come home as we had a crash.

    The ariline went Tango Uniform in 2008 when the fuel prices spiked...:rolleyes:

    Here is the same plane 3 months earlier...

    I thought it might be a HUD, but I wasn't sure due to it being suspended from the top of the windshield. Instead of the top of the dash, like an old gunsight projector.

    Yeah The HUD basically displays the vital information to the pilot and it is located in front of the windshield so that the pilot doesn't have to look down and the primary screens all the time. Helps ease the workload and HUDs you would have found them mainly in the cockpits of military aircraft I believe.

    More and more civilans use HUDs these days. Most if not all of American Airlines B-737s have HUDs for the Captains.
