EXTREME FLIGHT - B737-200 Combi Gravel Strip Operation

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 17 Agu 2019
  • Join me on this Super Exciting journey onboard NOLINOR B737-200 Combi equipped with Gravel Kit to far North Canada. We are flying 4 sectors from Montreal Mirabel via Val-d'Or and onward to Meadowbank Gold Mine and back. The landing and takeoff at Meadowbank is on gravel so it is spectacular to watch!
    The pilots explained all the features on this 37 years old B737-200 Combi with unique gravel kit installed. There are lot of good flying action in this video with primary focus on the operational perspective. Hats off to the hard working crew and those people work in remote places on Earth.
    NOLINOR Aviation's B737-200 Combi is one of a few B737-200 equipped with EFIS (Digital) display in the cockpit.

    V. interesting video, but I skipped much of it as that brainless R&R music/noise is way too irritating to listen to.

    Sam, you are a really nice guy! One more excellent video from you. Just a correction Sam: CLASSICS are the 737-300/400/500 series. The Boeings 737-100/200 are the ORIGINALS, the 600/700/800/900 are the NEXT GENERATIONS and the -7/-8/-9 are THE MAXes (official Boeing designations).

    7:00 I guess that's ballast to keep the center of gravity in the proper position to compensate for the weight of passengers in the back?

    Real cockpit.

    If I’d be pilot I would prefer flying this than a modern glass cockpit. This is at least real flying,

    The video is interesting. If it was not for that crap music it would be excellent. Why are we told it is upbeat and dramatic, in fact it sounds like canned tracks from kids practicing cover pieces. Otherwise interesting. That Captain is grossly overweight. That boy has potential hears problems not to mention a host of other potential disaster.

    From the Greater Montreal Region, September 18, 2019:

    Hello Sam!

    Usually I see your vodeos from laces in southeast Asia, but this one you decided to visit Canada

    As of more recent years, Mirabel has been abandoned - a disgrace. There are several reasons given,

    Note going Eastto West on the North side (of mirabel airport) is Autouroute 50, follwoing the route of an old farm road that was one of the busiest prior. the municipality of Mirabel is an administrative fusion of three local towns.

    As for Val d'or, I have driven through that on one winter occasion starting from Boisbriand, Just a bit North of Montreal on the North shore. At the time it was a day or two just after the end of a heavy snow storm, and in boisbriand there were piles of snow everywhere, making getting around very difficult, as they had not had enough tme to clear it all. (Snow removal in montreal is a multi-million CAD each winter, and the cleanup after a storm usually takes 3 to 5 days.)

    However, ironically the Val d'or area is an arctic desert and has about the same anual preciitation as a hot desert, except that it;s cold.

    Hence we could drive the van e were using to transport medical supplies to Rouyn-Noranda at 9 miles an hour. the road was deserted, and no snow on it. also it was reasonably straight.

    Boisbrisand to Rouyn-Noranda was about 1250 Km. as I remember and it took a good 12 hours of driving.

    On another occasion flying back to Montreal, about 25 minutes before landing, the captain announced we were flying over Rouyn Noranda, and would reasonably have flown cloe over Val d'or also. This was his great circle route.

    I am glad you left the French voices there, as speak fluent French (although my first language is English). However had you been able to pick up all the conversations of the passengers, it is quite possible you would have heard at least one of the 8 or so dialects of Inuktitut.

    Now from Pierre Elliot Trudeau International in Dorval (about 10 miles west of downtown Montreal - YUL), there are flights to the arctic daily, and a specialized airline, air Inuit that does some of thos routes,to Northern Huibs such as Kijjuaq, from which the passengers switch to smaller planes to reach their settlements.

    The livery on those planes is inscribed in the Inuktitut script, so its unmistakeable.

    Why is anyone transporting a concrete block?

    • deltavee2
      deltavee2 4 hari yang lalu

      Probably no facilities at the mine to make concrete in the extreme cold and it's cheaper to just fly in some prefab. I worked construction operating a batch plant making concrete for an 18-story apartment building in Ottawa. At -20C we called it because labour laws in Ontario but making and pumping concrete at that temperature requires constant attention. Up at the mine, I would guess the winter temps would be -30 to -45 so they would have a small yearly "warm" window to pour foundations and so on then they would probably just leave it shut down. They won't fire it up just to make a piece like that.

    I really do not mean to sound disrespectful but I know for a fact that the pilot of this plane would never meet FAA pilot medical certification. His BMI has got to be around 60+.

      So you must be fatty as well?? I’m not dismissing his hard work or talent. The captain is fat. FACT! In the world of cargo aviation inches and ponds matter. Don’t be such a sensitive puss!.

      There's really no need for cruel and mean jokes like that! If you knew anything about Aviation, you would know how brutally difficult it is to not only get one license, but to get 5+ licenses in order to reach the highest level of airmanship, that is airline pilot! Have some respect and acknowledgment for his accomplishments!!! Also, he's probably living a much happier, more fulfilling, more exciting, and more wealthy lifestyle then most people! So the joke's on you!

    That was truly something else & really far-out Sam, what a beauty that classic 200 series is, this transported us back to the late 60's early 70's era with real flying, she seems very responsive and undoubtedly a joy for those excellent pilots to fly with no computers or digital flight controls, instead just real flying a pilots dream I'm sure. Another A+ & 10/10 just when I thought you couldn't do any better this comes along - absolutely top class stuff! Just goes to show that modern-highly advanced computer controlled everything isn't always better and basically keeping it simple with strong, durable & analog engineering from previous decades [60's/70's] still has a lot of relevance and numerous uses in this so called day & age, great to see this video once again!
    If you haven't already seen this video [another preserved 747 classic] just type in 'Exclusive ASF B747-300 Visit' And as always Keep On Keeping On Man!

    I use to be in the DC-8 flying freight long ago. Classic flying is a amazing. Much respect for these two pilots. Less automation makes for a very polished flight crew member. Last airliner I worked in was an L-1011. Much respect for these gentleman. The bleed-air fed gravel deflector is brilliant!
