FlightAware member videos

Thought I’d start a new topic in the spirit of High-Flyers and Pictures of Planes. This is for videos by FA members.


Here’s one I took in January 2006. Very steep and bumpy approach to a very wet and rainy KSEA. I had the camera steadied so any movement is what we were feeling. Big bump at about 1:26.

Update on my “BeechSundowner channel” http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=BeechSundowner

Did my latest creation which I feel is my best to date “Stairway to Heaven” which is the video on the page above, just click the play button.

27 out of 31 videos are aviation related.

My goal is to make it one of the better if not the best GA / Flying channel out there. Not a documentary type of channel, but real life, real flights and experiences from one pilots point of view.

Hopefully, this is another way I can give back what GA has given to me. Feel free to share this with anybody that may enjoy the magic of flight as I do.

I think I have covered just about every phase of flight (haven’t done flight briefing YET) from preflight, to engine startup/ taxi / run up to take offs in my Sundowner, to enroute to landings, to IFR approaches, VFR approaches and even engine shutdown.

My first video attempt.

I like this one better, but I ran out of footage so it’s kinda lame.

Nicely done videos. Keep bringing more on :slight_smile:

What I don’t get is how you got such a good job that pays you to watch planes take off :smiley:

After all, you admitted in the title, it was “more of your job”[/quote]

Thanks Pa.

Nice videos, James. Your “first attempt” was much better than most experienced amateurs’ videos (that I’ve seen), and that’s even WITHOUT the editing and the music.

Hurricane Katrina aviation related video uploaded to

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rd5NOEFujII)

Hard to believe it’s been two years. Includes the Weather Channel forecast, what I heard, saw at my home and includes some aerials on my initial approach into Gulfport and the airport having been decimated after the storm.

I purposely made this video “somber” as there are many, many people missing presumed to have passed on.

Amazing part was living it while it was happening, and trying to get folks not down here to understand the scope of devastation. After all, all we had to do was call them on their cell phone. What they didn’t understand was the entire infrastructure was being decimated and nothing could be done.

Incredibly, my cell service worked the entire storm, but not the cell portion, but the walkie talkie portion.

I could probably write a best seller book on what I saw, felt, smelled, heard and so on, it’s that disturbing, and this isn’t the ninth ward fiasco in New Orleans.
