    British Airways has released a cockpit video showing the steep approach into London City Airport to celebrate the airline's bespoke business-class only service completing 25 million miles - the equivalent to 100 trips to the moon or circling the earth 1,000 times.

    The footage, filmed from the pilot's perspective in the flight deck, now gives everyone the chance to see the amazing aerial views of London's iconic skyline and see - and hear - Captain Karen Atherton describe the difficult landing

    Flown over this airport many times. Often wondered what the approach would look like. Now I know. Amazing and thank you.

    I join in that with you L.L.:) Enjoyed the view(I worked in London for some years), but have not flown into LCY. The lady's info was entertaining, and that with a"finely polished" QEII accent, nice! Also an enjoyable video:D:D:D!
