    Just got the 35mm film of my Florida flight back from the lab and I figured I'd share a few shots with you. These are better quality than the DVD caps I had before.

    Cool shots there Scott :)

    Can you show us what you used to mount the camera?

    Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the mount, though I can ask to have one sent to me. The plane I'm in belongs to Warbird Adventures. Thier planes are set up with a still camera on the port wing and a digital video camera on the tail, starboard wing and in the cockpit. The 35mm mount is a little point and shoot 35mm firmly mount in a metal cage on the wing tip. A cable release is used to trigger the camera which is pre-focused.

    Its a nice set up and as soon as I get the video translated into a usable format I will post a link to it.

    My 4 year old daughter saw the last pic and told me you didn't know how to fly because your upside down. I got a kick out of that. Great shots looks like your having a blast.

    I love how kids look at things, too funny.

    It was a blast, I heartily recommend it to anyone.
