    The White Glove Treatment

    Would anyone looking at this thread have a look at this video please?

    Two Japanese pilots landing an Airbus.

    Why are these guys putting on white gloves???

    Ive never been to Japan but I believe its the japanese culture. Apparently taxi drivers and train drivers wear white gloves as well.

    Michael,
    I can tell you from being stationed in Japan for 5 short years it's because; "If they HAVE to land it manual it would be considered work!?"

    That's strange.

    I'll ask my daughter-in-law next time she's in the US. She's Okinawan.

    I saw these guys whipping out the white gloves and I thought "what the heck are they doing?"

    Michael Jackson impressions on the flight deck?

    I was told by my neighbor who is a pilot , it was to keep "body oils" from marring the knobs and paint on all the panels and switches. He said the flightdeck of a 6 year old 767 looked brand new due to this policy which varies by airline and cultural in some places. He said that there are no smudges on any radio heads. He flies 747's frieghters to the orient

    I wonder if Gloves-ON and Gloves-OFF are on the checklist?
