Spookeay, with a "elevator-less" save like that, you can maiden all my birds in the future!

Simply AWESOME!

Congrats on the re-maiden.

Love the videos and your work!

Nicely done.

~Cheers, Neil

After seeing where Spookeay flies, I'll never complain about my field again. Great flying in close quarters!

Tried my hand at a little editing. Used two 808 keyfob cameras, one mounted on the horizontal stab and one mounted on the battery with the canopy removed (you can't tell from the tail cam) By the way, the plane flies just fine without the canopy. Shots from the ground were also taken with an 808 cam. kind of hard to hold and sight that little thing and fly at the same time;-)

Good Job editing and mixing.....I like the view up front. I need to try that some time... That is such pretty country up there. If it were not so cold up there I would buy some land for a get away place..

Thanks. I loved your video today.... I love the mountains. Ever tried to mount the cam looking some what down and going up over 2500? Get a good feel for the lay of the land that way.

Thanks.
I have had my FMS Cessna up over 1000 feet with a camera and an Eagle Tree altimeter on board. The camera was pointed slightly down. Got some neat shots. I haven't had the C-47 up that high.

Ok,, I worked for Alabama Power " A Southern Company" for 18 years at a coal fired plant. I was a Facility manager. We took the coal ash "Fly Ash" and processed it for Cinder Block & concrete plants. They make money all the way around up and down..........
