FO: First Officer. CPT: I will do this in heading select.. … to avoid this cloud.
FO: Yes, just do that. CPT: I selected 3000ft for ROVOX. And then we will manage to be there at this altitude. CPT: 17 degrees… it’s getting warmer in the clouds. Enough for the sunglasses today… … or not… We will just overfly the top of this cloud. CPT: So we have a shower on our left.. … thats the cloud we just saw. FO: Over there some more clouds. CPT: Then we have this cloud close to final.
We might fly through it. The raincloud. But it will only be water. FO: At 2000ft you have some space to fly around
it if needed. CPT: Ah… the first droplets. CPT: Nice! CPT: 2 degrees to the left. Only with the right wing through the cloud. FO: Yes. FO: I see now another cloud on our left.
CPT: Yes I can see that. We might see it later on. CPT: Not really, only saw the top of the cloud.. CPT: Mwha..
FO: It is looking OK. CPT: I’ll start reducing to speed 190kts. Thats the speed they want us to have at ROVOX. FO: Funny, It indicates being on the left, but I think it is on our right. CPT: Yes. CPT: This cloud we will just pass. FO: Looks like they made this route
because of the weather. Thats the way it’s designed! 😉 FO: The wind now is OK. Not expecting to much turbulence. CPT: So we where cleared… FO: indeed… ROVOX at 3000ft. CPT: So the next altitude will be 1500ft. Well this is some rain!
FO: Shall I switch on the start switches?
CPT: Yep thats good. CPT: The cloud seems to move faster than expected. Any way. Well.. when I look outside I don’t see that much. Because we can now look up towards the clouds. FO: Nice those openings in between the clouds. FO: Lets have a look…
Where are you.. Thats the one… FO: We might fly through it. CPT: But it is looking OK to me. FO: It is looking OK to me too! FO: There might be some turbulence in it.. CPT: It can be a lot of water… that might give some turbulence. How can they design this approach!
(Just along the center of the clouds). FO: Unbelievable. Rian.. CPT: Testing the wiper. Plus one extra knot. That will make 6kts above Vref.
But we will check this with the latest wind. FO: Yes… indeed. CPT: Would you like to checkin with tower first
or do the landing checklist. FO: 13… so plus 7 kts. CPT: Nice… I will fly manual now. FO: There was also a gust reported. CPT: Yes.. just 7 kts gust. CPT: Correcting for the LOC now. CPT: A little bit more thrust. CPT: Wind is pretty steady. FO: Nice landing. CPT: Thanks!
FO: Thats my opinion. FO: V2 left, first right towards the end for D2. CPT: No APU. CPT: Close to us. When the look towards us, they might see them. FO: Close to us. CPT: OK thanks… from here we can’t see them. CPT: Well… I would wait. CPT: Yes.. the other one is still on the runway… but it was a good call! FO: Very good call! FO: And then you need to go in the GoAround with this weather. CPT: Yes.. but it really was a good call! FO: So our right is clear.
Right and second right for D2. CPT: Now we wait for Power… … the power of the ground force.
