    Nice. I think I've been on a 737 exactly once and it was on a bright sunny day.

    I'm not gonna lie to ya, it's expensive as hell. But check this out. We told this pilot to just try and stall the aircraft. Heh. He can't do it. Good work, thrust vectoring.

    -Cave Johnson, probably.

    Would be awesome if announcer would say something like that during the flight.
    Though I wouldn't go and put all praise on thrust vectoring alone. Pretty sure pilot had something to do with plane flying crazy like that.

    I'm not sure about the 737 but in the 757/767 we have different wind limits for Cat II$III landings, out max winds are 50Kts total and 29kts crosswind and with an auto land its 25/15.

    That was sort of the joke in the ad it comes from, the test subject is doing flips and timing portal shots perfectly, but he's selling the boots, so that's what he praises.
