This video is from a great day of flying I got to do with my friend Jim Christie in his Saratoga. Jim is an experienced pilot and has been flying for many years, so it was a great opportunity for me to fly right seat with him on this beautiful Saturday in February. In this video you will be watching an approach and landing at Nantucket Memorial Airport (KACK), on the island of Nantucket, Massachusetts. For those of you not from the area, Nantucket is about 30 miles off the southern coast of Cape Cod a little further out to sea than Martha's Vineyard. If you've watched my other videos, you will notice that I am only using two cameras on this one. It made the set-up a little quicker and there is limited recording time on my Flip Mino HD. It wouldn't have lasted for the whole day of flying, so I decided to leave it out of the mix. For that reason, on this video you will get to see me moving my hand-held camera from one shot to another, attempting to catch all the action of the landing. If there was another fixed shot to go to, it might not have been as obvious in the final edit, but now you get a little peak at the video action. One of the production tricks you'll see, happens after landing during taxi, when I reach up to tap the ceiling of the cockpit. This gives me an easy way to sync both cameras in editing later. A little video production insight for you. You'll also get some insight into the way Jim uses his landing gear to remain higher over Nantucket Sound for safety, but then drop down effectively to get into the pattern at ACK. It's a little thing called drag. Again, only two cameras, but lots of good views and of course solid ATC audio. Enjoy this ride to Nantucket and thanks to Jim, a ride in his really sweet plane.
