Anybody who knows me well enough, knows that one of my other, somewhat less requited, passions is general aviation. So imagine my excitement when I saw this short, but gorgeous, 4k movie drop on to YouTube last night. I’ve watched it three times already!
It’s an onboard video, but onboard what, I don’t know at this point. The thumbnail shows Pete’s own Alpi Pioneer 300, D-MYZZ, flying off the right wing. But that Alpi is a side-by-side 2-seater, and he’s getting great shots out of both sides from one seat. The video was shot from a different aircraft. How he got such smooth and fantastic video on such a low-level flight, I’m not exactly sure. Some sort of gyro-gimbal and a decent 4k camera, I guess. Pete, if you read my comments or see this blog, please drop me a line!
The video was shot earlier in November, or maybe late October, when the weather was clear and the Nordschleife was busy for Touristenfahrten. It was clearly a Saturday or Sunday. Just check out how many cars on the ‘Ring as he banks right over Kallenhard!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! Direct video link.
UPDATE: Pete cross-loaded the video on to his cinematography channel, and the thumbnail shows the camera plane. But I still don’t know what it is…
