FO: First Officer. CPT: Nice. FO: It’s going well!
CPT: It certainly does! CPT: Seatbelts on… … “there will be storm now”. 😉 CPT: You don’t wanna know!
FO: Whooow! CPT: We are just flying in the top of the clouds.
Thats a pity. FO: Yes..
CPT: But it is looking nice! CPT: Nice… Slowly getting to the localizer…. CPT: Nice… a little more thrust. FO: Just some clouds over here. CPT: Crosswind from the right. FO: I am curious if we might see something from the city Amsterdam. CPT: I don’t think so..
FO: Me neither. CPT: It doesn’t matter… … we are enjoying our flight. FO: Thats what its about. CPT: Localizer is captured early…
It is not aligned with the final course yet. It captures nice… and slowly. FO: Shallow turn. FO: You can’t do anything about that. CPT: Look… … we see something of the city. CPT: There is the main train station. FO: Oh.. and there is the runway at our left. FO: It looks really strange, this far to the left. 50kts crosswind now… FO: I have the feeling we fly this way. CPT: Yes… true. CPT: We where also flying a little more that way.. CPT: Setting speed 15 now… I think we gain distance towards the next traffic. He is now 3nm in front of us. 4kts differente doesn’t make the big difference…
But any way. FO: All bits will help. FO: The train station indeed..
CPT: The North sea canal. And Amsterdam over here! FO: We might overfly a golf court… … its where the KLM also plays.. CPT: Yes I think so. CPT: Strange wind… 260 degrees… and we are landing runway 22 while we have runway 27. FO: You need to overfly Amsterdam…
For us thats nice… but… CPT: Yes… I will do this myself! FO: Yes… you can do this! 😉 CPT: Motion is coming on! CPT: What was the message in the FMC? FO: It mentioned “TAI above 10 degrees”. FO: Shall we switch it off?
CPT: Yes please do so. Engine anti-ice off. CPT: OK… expect a late landing clearance. FO: Traffic is almost at the end of the runway. CPT: Lovely! FO: Lovely indeed! CPT: We are looking towards our parking position?
FO: Yes. FO: From this side we don’t see it too often. CPT: Thats why I mentioned it. FO: Right is clear..
CPT: Aah… the use runway 27 for departure. FO: They are not crazy, to let us fly over the city… CPT: Haha… that’s not what I said. FO: Will they be ready?? CPT: There is nobody. FO: First starting the external power. CPT: Well… he has to do it all by himself. FO: Now I see another person running… or…
is he not coming.. FO: No… he is going home! FO: He will be having potatoes for dinner at 18:00! CPT: This is so bad…
Any way… … nothing to do about that! CPT: Nice of you for telling! FO: Well… it is appreciated! CPT: The 3 minutes cool down for the engines was made easily!
FO: Yes indeed.
