Biman Bangladesh DC-10 *FULL FLIGHT* Pleasure Flight Birmingham Airport – Last Passenger Flights




Biman Bangladesh Airlines ran scenic flights around Birmingham, UK to mark the end of an era. The one hour pleasure flights for enthusiasts ran on Saturday 21st February, Sunday 22nd February and Monday 23rd February 2014, with 3 flights running each day - 09:00, 12:00 and 15:00.
I couldn't let this oppurtunity go, so I booked myself a window seat priced at £150 on the Sunday 12:00 flight.
This video shows the whole flight; pre-boarding, outside shots, boarding, taxi, takeoff, the scenic flight, descent, landing and taxi back to the gate, with a quick look in the flight deck too.
It marks the last such journey for the three-engine plane, which first went into service in 1971. DC-10s have been used as passenger planes for over 40 years, and continue to be employed for cargo and military use. It is extremely sad to see this iconic aircraft head off to be scrapped, but I think the pleasure flights at Birmingham were a great way to celebrate its history.

We departed Birmingham International Airport on runway 15 at 12:40 and arrived at around 13:40. The aircraft reg is S2-ACR. I was sat in seat 12A.
My mate came up to Birmingham with us and got on the 15:00 flight, check out his channel here: www.youtube.com/bristolcardifairport
