Our latest "Video of the Week" comes to us from an AVweb reader who writes:

For those that know what FLIR is, I have a video you need to see. This is [a Gulfstream] ... on a visual landing to Aspen, Colorado at night. The right half of the view is the pilot's normal visual path to the runway during darkness in other words, totally black. The left side of the screen is the Forward Looking Infrared [FLIR], which paints the heat signature of the outside terrain for pilots so we can see at night as though it were daytime. ... You have to love FLIR ... takes all the fun out of night VFR!
