A video of my flight from Adelaide to Brisbane on the 12/11/2011. A pleasant and comfortable flight on a soon to be retired classic 737-400. This flight was not long after the grounding turmoil, and the crew where really friendly and provided great service, obviously trying to better their current image, too bad there current CEO is driving the company into dust.

We took off (unfortunately no video of the takeoff) from a cloudy Adelaide and climbed to our cruise altitude of 34000ft. A mostly smooth flight but we spent most of the time flying through thin high level cloud so not much in the way of any views. Unfortunately, i was about 2 minutes to late to film an interesting little event. Bout half way while we where cruising smoothly, all of a sudden there was a loud thud followed by the whole plane shaking, enough to cause some people to yell. When we landed, i was talking to the pilots and asked them about it, and they said it was the wake turbulence of a 767 that flew overhead of our flight path about 30seconds before we passed below.

As we prepared for landing into sunny Brisbane, we passed a large storm cell that had blown through throughout the day, before making a series of turns to line up with the runway. Got some great footage of the flaps and slats deploying, before touching down for one of the bumpiest landings ive ever had, great fun! Now before anyone accuses me of shaking the camera, i 100% DID NOT DELIBERATELY SHAKE THE CAMERA!!! Was very windy in Brisbane and they where quite a few stiff crosswinds as we where coming into land, and im pretty sure the first officer was in training. Also the camera has optical steadyshot, so infact it was more bumpy than shown

Anywho, please rate comment and subscribe if you liked the video, and be sure to check out my channel!
Cheers!
