need high res. video camera for live feed

I'm looking into getting a high res video camera for a plane. The people I'm building it for want good quality live feed from the plane. They don't need to take photos, as they will be recording the feed on the ground, so I just need the camera part. It will be for daytime use. They'd like to be able to recognize a person from about 250 feet, or maybe read a license plate. Any recomendations? I'll be hooking it up to black widow TX.
thanks

CJS had a second hand KX-141 for sale a little while back. Not sure if it's still available though.

If the camera has a fixed lens, you will not be able to recognize faces or read license plates from that height.

Get a Sony KPC-650, at 480 lines its really awesome quality, and you can change lenses The color and contrast are also much better than the very light cameras most pepole use.

JP, neither of us know what size his plane or helo is but we both DO know that a smaller camera would work on either, so......

Where is a picture of that camera you described?
