First released on VHS in 2001, the Druk Air program returns on DVD 5 years later mostly because it offers a look at the spectacular and very unusual flying in and out of Paro, Bhutan.
You are in the cockpit for 2 departures and 2 arrival at Paro in both directions of the runway, pilots explain what the special procedure is. You will also fly to 5 of the airline's destinations in Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Thailand and observe the BAe146 arriving and departing from the runway. Also included are view from around the country.
This is an incredible DVD.....The filming is magnificent....An aerial version of National Geographic while being in a great aircraft...The Bae 146...a four engined aircraft that suits this airline well...just look at the terrain... this aircraft...what it has to manuever in and around and over...absolutely great...and growing up in Delhi during the late 50's...it was great to see the old "PALAM' Airport once again...A job well done...Thx Just Planes.

Fantastic! This is one exciting DVD. The take-offs and landings at Paro are awesome and very demanding of the pilots and the Himalaya mountain scenery really adds to the excitement. What makes this program particularly interesting is the insight into a country that few visitors are privileged to visit. This is a must-have DVD with the usual excellent filming from the Just Planes crew.
