How about a ''specific location/area'' video request thread?

Was thinking about this lately... how about if this thread would be for chiming in and ask for a specific area/location you would like to see from up in the air...this could be cool ??

I understand that not every resquests could not be filled in but this would be nice if possible?

One could ask:

Request location: name of the area/location

and the person able to fill this request could chime in:

FVP video from: name of the area

Sounds good?


Request location: Stelvio pass, Italy.

If you got enough you could make a list of links to: Country, State, City, place in the city, etc?

Maybe it would be more fun to just thumbtag every video on a big world map,
so you can find out if theres any action going on in places you know?
I remember there being this map site letting you do this, anyone have an idea?

Hmm, I'm not sure that there are really specific locations that I'd like to see, but
there are certainly types of FPV I'd love to see, that I can't really do myself
(at least not very often).

For instance, I've seen a number of ocean-side beach videos where you can see
a low surf rolling in below, but invariably the pilot climbs high and just does sight seeing
from several hundred feet up.
I'd love to see some low beach runs done for as far as is possible. And I'd really
love to see the plane flown only a few feet above the surf for as far as possible.

For those who like to chase boats and ships, I'd love to see a chase shot lined up
from further behind so it lasts much longer instead of going at em crosswise and
head-on.

Surely there must be some place someone can chase a fast moving commuter train in
Europe for a mile or two (probably want to keep your distance from the TGV itself,
but would be cool to see it pass below).

Ok, I do have a specific location.. How about the Millau Viaduct (spectacular bridge over land in France).

Once spring sets in I'll get you that, no problem.

That's been on my list for a while too, must be spectacular to fly loops around

Cheers,
