Love's Landing Fly-In (Florida) · · PAGE 318.
November 7, 2009: I went up the flight line to see
the RV-6A that Dale and Barbie fly around the country.
During lunch, Dale was showing me his videos on his computer taken by this
camera mounted on the bottom aft fuselage belly panel.
Here is a little closer view from a different angle. He is planning to build a
fairing to minimize drag for this installation. He also uses a JVC digital camcorder
to make his airborne video recordings. After seeing my installation, he is
considering a second camera inside the cockpit with a movable mount like mine.
Here is a series of images from a movie Dale was making of these three RV's
departing in formation.
You can see I was also watching them fly by when I was standing on my wing preparing for departure. Dale was standing on the passenger side of my airplane when he took this video sequence above.
Dale started taking video as I was ready for engine start before my departure.
I really love that paint job!
Dale zoomed in to catch me programming my GPS for my return trip after engine
This closer telephoto shot shows me announcing on the radio of my pending entry
onto runway 36.
With full up elevator for taxi operations, I take a look both ways and head out
to the north end of the runway and then to the west end of runway 9 for my takeoff to the
east. The wind is almost directly from the east and that would be the most stable
take off. It also saves me from having to taxi back down to the south end of the
runway via the neighborhood streets on the other side of the runway.
You can use these web links to the videos and photos posted online by Dale with his captions:

Let's go to the next page to get me started back to the Chattanooga area from Central Florida.
