There was an advertizing jingle for Sara Lee Cake that went "Everybody doesn't like something, but nobody doesn't like Sara Lee".
I believe Guido Warnecke's video posts are in the same category. 8-)

Thank you, Joel!

Mr. Warnecke; Indeed, you are the epitome of professionalism. The orderly manner that you conduct yourself while in the cockpit is exemplary. Repeating info, doing cross-checks, constantly informing your co-pilot of your actions and readings... it reminds me of a trip while I was in the USAF on a C-5A. I was an aircraft hydraulic repairman, a SSGT who was a "Range Rider" - flew with a particular C-5 everywhere it went, along with about eight other mechanics of different disciplines. Many times, I got to sit in the Instructor Pilot seat, between the pilot and co-pilot and just aft of the center console. On one such flight out of Norfolk NAS enroute to Rota, Spain, we were hit by lightining on our climb-out, at about 17,000 feet. Everything went dead. It is a sickening feeling to hear those CF-6 TF's spooling down and all of the warnings and buzzers going off, but the pilot and co-pilot, along with the Flight Engineer, were very methodic, flipping to their emergency engine re-start pages of their knee-boards and very efficiently going about getting the engines re-started. I will never forget that I could hear the wind and also feel the ram-air turbine making a vibrating noise that I am sure was the hydraulic pump and generator attached to it. The cool-heads, the methodic manner and the precise commands and cross checks allowed them to get the engines started, but not before losing quite a bit of altitude. C-5's don't exactly glide well, especially when taking off with nearly a gross takeoff weight for a long flight. I was never so happy to hear that number 2, and then 3 engines re-sart, followed by 1 and 4. The whole time the crew was following the checklist, I was thinking "Hurry up!" But it was this discipline and efficiency that saved the plane and it crew. Watching several of your videos reminded me of this flight - I think it was May of 1975. When you are always professional, and know your aircraft, in-flight emergencies have better odds of becoming stories to be shared with mates who can learn from it and apply it should the event happen again. When I flew with this AC again, I noticed he was always scanning - inside the cockpit and outside. He said the plane will talk to you, but you have to listen. Good advice. I really enjoyed your videos. Thanks for sharing.
