    I love listening to / watching this.
    United used to let the passengers listen in on the cockpit/ATC  communication during take off and landing.
    On a big airplane they would refer to us as (flight #) heavy.

    once we were on a B 717 doing an island hop piloted by a young attractive woman with long blond hair.
    It was sort of scary watching her in her pilot seat (the cockpit door was left open for the flight) as she tossed her long golden locks back and forth over her shoulders with her head back.

    As a woman, I was as nervous as anyone else with the woman "driver".
    shame on me.
    that was maybe 20 years ago.
