    Some shots from Salzberg LOWS

    I did a few circuits tonight at Salzberg just for the practice. The unique thing about Salzberg is there is only one approach. If you miss this, it's a left turn to pick up the locator outer marker and then fly the outbound ILS until crossing another NDB and then a slight right turn to a VOR about three miles from that.

    Once there crossing the VOR, enter the left turn holding pattern using a teardrop entry and then you can either shoot the approach after the inbound turn or go around for another full hold circuit.

    It's a mind game I love. You have to know where you are every second using the instruments to interpret your position. Great fun!!!!

    Love your work as always Mike. I reckon you could make a lot of mileage from an instructional video of one of these flights.

    Can't wait to get mine into action and start doing the same.

    I'd like that, really. Though I'd need a pretty good video camera.

    I think most of the nav problems would fall on deaf ears with FMC and all the other alphabet boxes on electric airliners.

    Thanks Joe. I really never thought I'd take it this far.

    I remember when I signed up here I was still on a desktop.

    Now I have folks asking me when this 727 is going to be flying out of my basement, and putting up with all of the jokes.

    I had a business associate over a couple of weeks ago that was curious about the hobby and had a passing interest in aircraft and aviation in general.

    When he saw the 727 cockpit all he wanted to do was sit in the left seat (of course that's the only seat in my sim!). He didn't know anything about flying it; he just wanted to sit in it like so many that have flown on a 727 want to.

    It used to be a pretty popular aircraft from what I've heard.

    Ken, what sort of video camera would be appropriate for internet videos?

    How do I get that much data into the computer without bringing my hard drive to it's knees? What about editing? As you can tell, I don't know anything about making videos.

    The last video I made was on a Super 8 camera about 30 or more years ago.

    You have my curiousity piqued and I'd like to know how everyone here shoots videos. There might be something to these instructional videos.

    Mike. I'm no expert, and I'm betting there are others here who are, but you really only need a very basic digital video camera. In fact many stills cameras offer a very reasonable video option which usually record in Apple Quicktime video format which is already an internet format. Have a look at the video on MyCockpitVideos of Gwyn and Me doing our scenic around Perth. Gwyn shot that on a little pocket stills camera.

    As for editing software, I use Sony Vegas, but there's lots of others probably free. Depends how fancy you want to get. For simple top & tail as well as cut & paste plus perhaps background music, any of the simple editors would do. You should be able to add narration as well. Software like Vegas will import the vision direct from the camera for editing then export in any format you choose.

    As for file size, yes it will require some room. For instance the Perth scenic vid is an avi file, runs 6:43 and is 105Mb, however you can use all sorts of compression when exporting to compress to smaller file size at the expense of quality. Certainly for initial editing you might need to get a larger hard disk, depending on your size and space situation at the moment.

    Hope that helps, but I'm sure others will chime in very soon. Particularly the Mycockpitvideo site managers
