Queen Mary 2 embarking the Hamburg Pilot.
« on: Feb 12, 2021, 12:18 PM »
Hi everyone, this is my short video of the Hamburg Pilot boarding Queen Mary 2. These people make it look easy but, it is a dangerous manoeuvre. Here is my short video if you wish to view it.

Great film.
If you search on you tube there are quite a few videos of  scenes like that .
Imagine rough weather and then having to climb 60-70-80 feet up a rope ladder on the side of a big tanker or bulk carrier.

Thank you, Alan! That took me right back... a fabulous port. And to crown it all, you even saw an Airbus taking off from their very own runway :) .

You are right about the pilots -- making it look easy, which it definitely is not. Thank you for the attentive filming.
