Here's a link to a short video I took during an approach and landing into Logan airport. I was taking a couple for Angel Flight from Presque Isle, Maine down for treatment in Boston. It was a beautiful early Fall day, past Mount Katahdin and down to the coast of Maine by Kennebunkport. I live for days like this!

If you can, watch it in high def and 2X speed.... it's fun!

Very cool Jamie, and nice job keeping it centered. I've landed a Warrior at Logan twice for youth expos, and yes, they definitely want you to keep your speed up!

Yes very cool.

One question: Through the approach they had you at an angle to the runway until short final. Is there any story behind that?

Just watching a couple of JamieCT's youtube videos. This short one may not get the attention it deserves.

I had a similar experience flying a 152 into KIAH. Landed on 15L, the controller told me to keep it at the yellow arch until over the fence. At that point I chopped the power and started dropping flaps as soon as I was in the white arch. I still made the first turn.

Great video!
