Wow. My Roof Needs to be Repaired.

While you are a passenger on a flight and the aircraft is about to land, Can you see your house on the final approach?

Of course, as some FlyerTalk members point out, one could simply use one of the Internet mapping technologies that allow one to also see satellite photographs of their home — or anywhere else in the world, for that matter —as taken from space. This can be done instantaneously and from the comfort of one’s own home.

However, there is still a coolness factor about seeing your home from the window of an airplane when it is time to land.

This topic begs the obvious question: can you see your house on take-off?

    Absolutely. My home is 2.2 mile on the extended center-line at the airport. I am a pilot and it still thrills me to see “my place”

    brazilian investigation shows that the american pilots Joe Lepore and Jan Paladino turned off the TCAS in the plane crash in brazil in 2006. they turned off and more than 150 persons of the GOL plane where killed. ()

    now tell me one thing, if a brazilian pilot turns off the TCAS in US and more than 150 americans where killed, what the american press would say?

    the american pilots where called HEROES by the american press.

    what kind of HERO is this???
