From Sam:
"Our flight was operated by Captain Maoz Tsur "

It's funny, but that's his name.

I enjoyed watching it. I have so many great memories on this plane but it's definitely time to retire

Heh. Pangs of regret that I didn't go.
Agreed. But it's not clear if they would have given you access to the cockpit etc  ;D then it's not as much fun imho

More likely to have been poisoned than given that kind of access ;D

I didn't fly on the outbound flight. I believe I'm the only one on the return flight who wasn't on the outbound. I can't do a job like Sam Chui even if I tried. I have no photography skills. I just wish I would've recorded the Captains announcements before take-off on the return as it was really hilarious. Sam Chui was probably dumbfounded as to why everyone around him was laughing . Was all Hebrew.

TR isn't about photo/video skills. It's about sharing the experience.

Agree. He has been to many different places with different cultures, yet always represents it respectfully and in an entertaining way.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

That's because El Al hasn't invested a dime into it in 25 years.
