Last 421…

August 2, 2011

My last upload of Cessna 421. I flew more than 400 hrs on this amazing airplane and I will miss it. Video includes takeoff from Beziers FR, views of the runway at Montpellier, city center of Nimes, and landing in Innsbruck, AT. I have included interresting in-flight views of the cumulus clouds. Notice icing on the windshield while passing through the small cumulus.

    No it was not:-) It was just a small cumulus cloud between FL 100-140, the instability layer was very thin. So despite it was ising in the cloud, the flight through it lasted only 15-20 seconds. So nothing to be scared of:-)

    1:50 was that scary? looks like quite a bit of ice for such a short time.

    From a fellow 421 flyer all I can say is that the 421 is an outstanding aircraft and you have done a nice job of capturing the feeling of flying this bird in your video, well done.

    Nice landing, you greased it.

    We used to own two of em’. Greatest Cessna ever. By the way, after checking my fathers log books, I googled their call signs to find out that both had been repainted and had the avionics upgraded and now are for sale.

    On Cessna 421, you have only electric window heat on the LH seat, no de-ice or anti ice on the FO seat. But the ice usually goes away before commencing the approach – by sublimation or just simply melts in higher air tempreatures:-)

    Beautifull footage man! I nvy you, you get to fly way above all the caos of most air traffic and geographical obstructions with only those enormous cumulus 4 friends :). Yet you have less responsibility than a 747 captain, that is the best sort of freedom in the air that I can realistically imagine! Btw how do you get rid of the windsheild ice? I know how wing de-icing boots work, and carbi de-icing, but what 4 the windsheild, does the cabin heat simply take care of it?

Got something to say?
