  For Everyone, not only Aviators. This video is 4:11 long but it
  REALLY GETS GOOD at the 2:40 mark when the airplane enters
  the clouds. This video gives EVERYONE an idea of what the Pilot
  sees and does on an Instrument approach. I'm sure that you'll not
  only like it, learn from it........but the scenery itself (New Zealand)
  is beautiful.  Burro, Bob

This is an interesting head camera video from a pilot flying a new
instrument approach into Queenstown, New Zealand. A straight-in approach
like this without the nearby mountains is not unusual, especially in the
tough weather of Europe; but a double-curved one like this with nearby
terrain used to be something countries would not even publish, let alone
authorize. The key here is development of
GPS technologies.
This flick has gone viral among aviators. It's worth viewing.

You must have total faith in your instruments, and yourself, to properly fly
this approach.
