Centralia, PA circa 2004. A mine fire has been burning under this town since 1962, but the town still stands -- sort of. Sorry for the shaky quality, but it's hard to get a steady shot while flying that low. Unfortunately the original tape has degraded past the point of recovery, so I am unable to upload a higher resolution.
This was shot in a Cessna 172SP (N318ME), BTW, with me as pilot. A friend had the camera in the back seat. The cabin radio speaker was left on for effect. As we were filming this, one of the plane's dynamos failed and went unnoticed for a minute or two. This area a fun place to do an emergency landing from 2000'.
