9076 ratings | 130237 views
What are the 3 BEST things with being a Boeing 747 pilot? In todays episode I have the absolute pleasure to sit down with Kelsey from 74Gear and ask him my most pressing questions about his life as a long-haul pilot on the mighty "Queen of the skies"! I will also take the opportunity to ask him a little bit about his Youtube channel and his fantastic "Hollywood vs Reality" series which I highly recommend that you check out!

For some reason I've always doubted that 74 Gear is a real pilot and not some simmer-imposter. NOW I'm finally convinced.

2nd best Mentour intro ever! The first was the Batman Pilot on Standby video.

Loved both of your videos guys, as well as both of your channels.

I’m designing a modern luxury zeppelin, maybe I’ll have these guys captain the first vessels. Also, the dream lifter is the ugliest plane ever, it looks like someone just pumped a wad of gas into the fuselage of a 747 and the hull’s on the verge of popping.

That felt like I dropped in on a conversation between two guys and three or four friends. Well done. Do more of that. (I do a lot of analysis of these kinds of things and I'm going to keep all of that to myself because this just worked - why I think it worked isn't as important as the fact that it did.)

#1. Layover/schedule options for long haul, the sleep berths. #2. Impressing people on the ground with the BIG plane #3. Great places to fly to... ie: same as #1. So, nothing about flying the actual plane? Got it.

This was funny. I work in a medical laboratory, and I watch ridiculous situations in films, but enjoy them anyway. How hard is it to teach an actor how to use a pipette? Why are they shaking hands when they meet? NO ONE in a laboratory touches another person's hand. But it's okay. It's just a film.

I love these guys
silentguy123 (29 days ago)
Okay, I don't know about realism of plane scenes but I do know that as a computer scientist there are a lot of "hacking" scenes in movies where I have this internal chuckle but if the movie itself is enjoyable I have no problem with them...

10:28 Wow, I am a subscriber from Kazakhstan :) We have like a connection hub here in Almaty between Europe and Asia. I see 747s frequently here, but they all are cargo 747s. You should visit Almaty, we have nice mountains, skiing and our city has been changed to be more european-like city and more tourist friendly over the past 6 years.

Would be nice if passengers had the bunk beds, especially for long flights. Those crazy flights you hear from Sydney to London sure could use them. I want to go to Australia some day, but could never stand to fly that long, but if I had a bunk I would.

If possible, please consider doing more of these interviews with pilots working in the Boeing 700 family other than your 737NG. The differences you highlight between your two planes are fascinating to learn about.

Very interesting that I've heard same thing from some pilots, that 747 is easy to fly! The least thing that you expect from Queen of sky!
Carla Rae (2 months ago)
Great video! I've been a subscriber here for a little bit, but just found 74gear channel yesterday. Regarding movies, I always take them with a grain of salt, so to speak. Hollywood has to make a movie exciting or interesting to the general public, so there's going to be some Hollywood showmanship.

4:27 - Our shop made all the ribs for the LCF (Large Cargo Freighter) "bonnet" as it was then known, including enough for a fifth aircraft, but that hasn't be built. Sure kept us busy!

I always thought it's easier to land a heavy plane. Landing a light aircraft is neurotic. Any wind or especially cross wind, the plane gets tossed around all over the place. And small planes just want to keep flying when you get close to runway.

I would say "Airplane" is the most technically accurate movie.

That was before these guys' time, but it was the first one that came to mind for me. Flight of the Phoenix was pretty wild too.

Left this comment on 74Gear's video of the two of you, so here is the same one for you. :-) Great video! Two great pilots together. :-) Interesting to hear about your lives as pilots. As one who always dreamed of learning to fly, I love these videos from you both. Now I am a retired grandma with family commitments that take a lot of time, yet I hope some day to at least go through the training and get my pilots license, just for the accomplishment, even if I might not use it a lot. My father was a fighter pilot way back when biplanes were the thing. Born to him in his later years, I soon learned to love his stories and the photos of those daring days in the sky. Keep up the good work both of you!

Hey Commander! You two work very well together! I love to watch his Channel! Awesome that the you guys got together to make a video! I Love it when my favorite U-Tubers get together to make a video! One my all time favorites is Casey Neistat & Jesse get together in your Home Country of Sweden! It’s an Amazing Christmas Video where Casey fly’s through the Air holding onto a Giant Drone! Your Amazing! Thnx, CJ
