Summary: This country needs you. With the global Coronavirus / COVID19 pandemic continuing to cause our daily lives to adjust, London City Airport has closed to commercial traffic and will now solely be used for military transportation for the new Nightingale Hospital at the neighbouring London ExCel centre.
With that being said, we need the very best of pilots to take on the approach to London City in the beast that is the C130J. You can get an idea of the skill required by watching this video of a real world practice landing the other day - https://twitter.com/AJBC_1/status/1242497223709130754
