Delivery Flight Video

I shot a bunch of digital video on my flight back to California, and finally got a firewire cable and a copy of iMovie yesterday and hacked together the footage, hopefully removing the most nausea-inducing shots. Pretty silly, but it was my first attempt at putting something together like this.

It was shot in New Mexico and Arizona, including Monument Valley and Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon.

It’s a streaming Quicktime video, so you Mac users should be all set. Can’t comment on Windows.

Dave,

Hats off to you and Scott - long live Propellerhead Productions! I can’t speak for everyone, but while I wait for my bird, I enjoy others’ stories and pics; having a movie just adds a new way for me to enjoy my anticipation.

The movie played perfectly on my Windows 98 laptop, but I got no sound - I know that there should have been (based on your music credit at the end). Probably a problem at my end; if anyone has the solution to this, please share it.

I noticed that you and Scott were on Oxygen (you use the same Oxymizer cannulas that I use). What altitude were you at?

Thanks for taking the time to do this - the movie was well worth the ~ 1 hour download time it took over my dialup connection.

Mike.

Magnifico! On “Windows 98” too. What are you going to do for an encore?

Wow! Best posting yet. Not even Cirrus has movies on its site. But damn, you’ve made my delivery wait harder than ever! Please do a sequel.

Thanks Dave! Wow! The work stress has melted away after watching that impressive movie. My only problem is that I still have another 10 months or so to wait for my plane.

Thanks again.

For anyone having problems viewing this video in Windows, here is the solution: Go to Apple’s websight and download Quick Time for windows at http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/ It is free.

We did the Dragon Corridor over the Big Ditch at 10,500 (a good reason to learn how to set up user waypoints in the GNS430). Given that we had a long day ahead of us (we ended up with 7.7 on the Hobbs) we decided to avoid the fatigue that we’ve gotten in the past at that altitude. Most of the rest of the trip was at 8500.

The video is supposed to stream, at least on a Mac, though I did the math and discovered that it takes an average of 185Kbps to play it back, so unless you’re on a T1 or DSL or cable modem, you’ll probably have to wait for the whole sorry thing to show up first (sorry about that).

… for anyone who does not understand why having your own plane is such an amazing thing!

One request for your next opus: A little more of inside the plane, both in the air and on the ground…

Well, I’m going to fly back to Santa Fe next week, probably via Sedona and the Painted Desert, so I’ll take the camera along and try to get some steady shots this time!
