Watch in HD!
It's a big milestone for the channel today as AbraxasVideo turns 5 years old!
In 2010 I started the channel with the popular showcase 'Serenade of the Skies' and on the third anniversary it was followed up with 'An Epic Age'. For this anniversary I decided to look back on some of the uploads to the combined music of the first three showcases, Serenade, Clear Vision and Epic Age. The second half of the video looks ahead at the videos that are still to come.
There are some shout outs to friends and supporters of the channel throughout the video so be on the lookout for those ;)
With over 860 videos online and just as many subscribers, the channel has grown beyond my original expectations. YouTube has provided a great way to showcase all of my aviation adventures and connect with like-minded enthusiasts. While I know I'm a long way behind the present day, I do intend to catch up with a busy schedule for 2015 to help that become a reality.
Please enjoy the video and remember to let all your AvGeek friends know to get on board! I'd like to thank you all for your support!
