In which Glenn takes me in his C172 from Georgetown to Kittie Hill and back. We examine what's left of Georgetown Lake after the long hot summer, and get a bit of rough grass strip practise. It's fun to come in low over the trees; a bit gusty as the wind shifts around them.
Also present was the visiting B-17 'Aluminum Overcast', which makes a few cameo appearances.
Things I learnt in making this video:
- GoPro camera mounts really do stick very well to Cessna wing struts, even at full-on Cessna cruise speeds.
- Colour balancing two different cameras, with two different colour profiles, when one is outside and the other is behind a blue-tinted windshield, is a Bitch. My efforts here are not perfect, but at least it's no longer blue.
- If you're going to put tape around a camera, make sure the end is not facing against the slipstream.
- When the tape comes off, it makes an unholy racket in your audio track. Yes folks, that's why the engine noise fades to music in part of this film...
- Kittie Hill's runway is full of holes; at the time we visited, anyway. I hope for their sake that it has softened up with the recent rain.
Anyway, here you go, enjoy a sunny November day's flying...
