Re: ZS-IAB to land at FAGM 30/04/2016

Interestingly ... I have done a landing and take off in a 737 at Rand with Capt Dennis Spence in the Comair 737 simulator. I dont know what weights he had dialed into the simulator but lets just say that I was happy that there was a slight valley at the end of Rwy 29 !
