Holy cow, this has some really creative use of a GoPro: Air Tahiti Nui employees put together this video. The closing shot isn't from a GoPro, but it will blow you away.

Steve you keep giving such interesting links

That last scene was awesome!

Well done Zane, I was in my front yard doing the same with my iPhone, I'm going to try the vertical like Steve's next time...

Jeff, I like the nocturnal -47 even better than your -52, and that's going some.

Another outstanding page in our book. Zim, those videos stir the imagination don't they? Small wonder the GoPro guy is a multi billionaire, what an amazing little box.

Found this print tonight as I was updating some files, can you name these three people?

Lets see, Right to left that would be one Jim Wilson, Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. also known as John Denver, and wife Anne I believe.

Cool photo Jim and I remember you once telling us about your friendship with John. Also know John's dad was in the air force and set several speed records in B-58's.

Dan

PS - Looks like I need to add a photo for top. Not much aviation lately, how about one of my bird hunting girlstaking a nap?

Pretty cool. How do you suppose they got those engine spool-up shots from behind the fan?

The part where visibility goes to zero as they drop into the cloud deck while still seemingly pointed directly at that mountain peak is kind of scary.

Mark


Not to mention how they used every foot of the runway surface on rollout...

I've landed at Queenstown, but we made the approach from the opposite direction on a day when there was not a drop of moisture in the sky.

2. Gear is down and ready for touchdown!
The white is all blown out.. yuck







3. On a big Booming day the thermals were much more than just gentle lift..

So Mark, just like the MACH loop in Wales is it? Have to say the grass is a bit thin and I can't see any sheep.

No grass, just plenty of rock.
Lots of small narrow holes burrowed into the ground where the rattlers live.

That was around '84 I think. Annie wishes, that's Sheila. One of the days we spent playing airplanes before a concert. JR and I have talked about buying that bipe just for the memories. In reality it's an absolute pig. John had it built with a full interior so it weighs a ton, the vertical performance is about a foot. It has a 540 so you can get enough smash to do some basic stuff, but you have to really wind her up ahead of time. That airplane is worth about 40K absent John's history with it.

We sure got spoiled, we'd meet John at the back gate of his concerts and he'd walk us to the spot right in front of the stage where he wanted us. I was the only one allowed to have a camera and he used all my shots in his tour programs.

I remember seeing John's P210 landing in Boulder once in a while, back in the late 70's. In 1976 I spent the summer hopping glider rides out of Aspen; got to meet some interesting people (but that's another story). Pointing out John's house under the downwind leg was a part of every flight.
