Video: Pilots view Thai Airways Boeing 777-200ER landing at Bangalore at night

Thai Airways recently upgraded its Bangkok Bangalore service to a Boeing 777-200ER five times a week.

One of the neat features of this aircraft is a nose camera that gives a pilot’s view of landings and take-offs.
Here is a capture from the flights IFE AVOD system. Loved the smooth approach to Runway 27 despite the mild monsoon turbulence. Regulars to the Bengaluru International Airport will make out the distinct areas airside. Just before touchdown, observe the perfect height indicated by the two red and two white lights of the PAPI.
The quietness of the Rolls Royce Trent 800 engines is really enjoyed in the front of the bus.
