Hey Jon,

You've got some great scenery around your neighborhood. I lived in Albuquerque for awhile. The Sandia range is beautiful.

Have you ever tried tapeing a lipstick type cam to the top of the tail? That would be a great position to see take off and landings. You could just send out a video every couple of months so the rest of us can continue to appreciate long wide runways.

Merry Christmas

camera. So, once I get to the end of the runway, I get out, push record,
just back in, and take off. The problem I have been fighting is that my

I do not know why exactly but yesterday everything finally worked!

So, take a look at my latest video on Vimeo (

There is another new video ( that was taken
a friend when I passed him on the way home from breakfast. Very short and
the lighting is all wrong but still fun.
