A full, uncut full flight video with Belavia from Minsk (MSQ) to Geneva (GVA) onboard the last ever Tupolev 154 flight into Europe.
On 29 May 2015, Belavia operated the last ever Tu-154 flight into Europe onboard aircraft EW-85748. I was lucky enough to secure a seat on the flight, which is normally operated by CRJ.
00:12:40 Engine start
02:26:00 Top of descent
02:55:15 Approaching Geneva
03:00:05 Landing in GVA
The video begins in the terminal at Minsk, prior to boarding, before we get a bus out to the aircraft sitting on a remote stand. The engines start soon after boarding, and we are on our way for the 2.5 hour flight to Geneva.
We turn left after takeoff, getting a great view of the city of Minsk, before heading towards Warsaw, Prague, Stuttgart, Zurich and finally for a beautiful scenic approach along Lake Geneva and landing with full reverse thrust deployed. ATC is included for approach and landing in Geneva.
Video taken from seat 23F.
