I will see with Thorsten if its feasable ahah

Could you do a video of landing in Paro with either Concorde or 380?


Here's a video of Concorde taking off from Paro runway 33 and landing on runway 15:

might need two or three parachutes on that shuttle as well as some heavier wheel brakes to be able to stop in that short distance ;)

Thank you!

Here's a similar video with 777-300ER. Reverse thrust much better so brakes unused on landing and no Concorde-style brake fires.

Today, I performed flight from Sydney to Queenstown. Take off 1846Z from YSSY, 1904 FL570, then descent to FL530 and accelerate to M2.10 (Total T nose 134 deg C, Tmo 128 deg C). Then go to galley for some fun with stewardess dressed only in the British Airways scarf :mrgreen: . 1926Z collapsed all electric systems. Lost all hydraulic systems (Concorde has not APU). AP off, AT off, all engines flame out due feeding fuel pumps off.. Transponder switched to 7700, stewardess come to cockpit with the probably last big glass of perfect czech Plzen beer.
R.A.T. successfully deployed, at 1940Z all engines restarted, then all systems operational. INS restarted, AP engaged, 1948Z starting descent fo FL100 130 nm before AFTON. 2000Z AP driven by INS failed again, then AP, AT switched off and continued full manual flight. 3 naval miles before AFTON intercepted VOR radial 32 for final approach. 2009Z safe smooth landing at NZQN rw 05R.
