Unfortunately, the sound recording capabilities of most consumer grade camcorders is poor when it comes to the ear splitting noises generated by aircraft engines. My ride in a B-25J resulted in a loss of hearing for almost 24 hours, yet the video I shot would lead one to believe that it was loud, but not to the point of being obnoxious.

Professional grade recording equipment is much better. The sounds that come with RCS Panels' or MAAM's B-25J package for MS FlightSim 2002/04 are quite accurate and with the sound volume at maximum, sounds exactly like what I heard during my ride.

I hate to go off topic here, because that video was awesome, but it reminds me of why, at some point it is better to not take video, and just take-in the experience, because taking video can rob you of the actual experience. In April 1998 I saw the Space Shuttle Columbia lift off at KSC and I video taped it, I later realized that it would have been better for me to watch, listen, and remember.

I watch and video at the same time now that I am not confined to the tiny view finder of a camcorder. In the old days, camcorders were big, heavy, used full size VHS tapes, and all you had was black and white view finder screen where the aircraft often blended in with the sky and you got nothing but sky on the tape. But with the color LCD flip out screen, it is fairly easy to video and watch the whole scene at the same time.

that first video, that corsair, was that a two-seater?


corsairs aren't supposed to be two-seaters!

neither are spitfires, neither are mustangs but they still modify them for various reasons. To take passengers at airshows for one . Nothing out of the ordinary to see a two seat conversion

Clearly fake . . . the props are spinning too slow and backwards at that. Gratuitous cleavage shot doesn't save it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif



Now here's some top quality video . . . http://www.angel.ne.jp/~tochy/ (http://www.angel.ne.jp/%7Etochy/)

I was snow boarding in New Zealand about 5 years ago at Cardrona(?). I was halfway down a run when a Corsair flew along a few hundred feet below me. Now I had a video camera with me at the time but was too busy gawking at the Corsair and going 'wow!' to even think of taking a video!

I was driving down the fre way in Southern California and a Boeing 737 drove by me! of coures it had it's wings removed and had wheels! I had no film in my camera!

I caught it ad a rest stop on I-15..

they remodeled it for doing car shows...

the back opened up and could stay open while they drove for a nice scenic view and worked great for air conditioning..


It was amazing because it actually fit in the lanes while driving.. well almost, the bottom of the fue****e is curved so it was narrower than the middle so that help alot with width on the road..


This only goes to show you always have your camera ready to snap away..

this was before the day of video camera being so common... was still using SLR 35 MM cameras..

I saw Marine's Dream at a show in CT last year. It was very nice.

You'd be hard pressed to see it has a 2nd jump seat fitted.

Its a shame the 2 seat dual control trainer model Vought built didnt survive. That could be fun.

Wow, if that plane was mine I would probably get caught trying to hump it in the middle of the nite. But seriously, whats that little window behind the pilot's seat under the open canopy glass, looks like it could be a little seat-place.

Thanks, very nice clip!

For future reference, if your camcorder has a manual overide, I suggest you use it. "Automatic" volume contols don't work very well, and despite their name, distort the sound.
