Some fun stuff to watch there folks - thanks.

Have to admit the sailplane download is my favourite so far. Beautiful stuff, and a bit of an eyeopener on the performance front. How long is he inverted for?!?!?!? And on what appears to be some kind of an outside turn (sorry - dunno the technical term ).

Impressive nonetheless.

Anyone willing to host ?

I have just recently put together a 9 min. clip with music from various videos I have filmed over the last couple of years. It shows some aeros and formation flying with the Pilatus P3.....all in all I would say some entertaining 9 min. - It's about 170meg in size.

Would anyone here be willing to host it ??

SlowRoll / SteveR - many thanks for that one! Is it just my set up, but at about 1min 40sec into the video, it resets and goes back to the beginning? Total run time is a gnats whisker under 9 mins (including the duplicated first section).

I've experienced this on both live streaming and a locally stored version of the file. I'm using Windows Media Player 9 under Win2k, if that's any help.

Still a good video, though!

Think I know why...

Evo/Circuit Basher, I believe something went wrong when uploading the file.....I had various disconnects and had to resume on several occasion.....

I will upload the whole file again but will be able to do so only on Monday, as till then I won't have access to a high speed internet line....

sorry for this and a nice weekend to all !!

Have just downloaded the clip.....people, don't waste your time downloading it yet....its completely broken !!!!!!

Hope to have more luck with the upload on Monday.....

Slow Roll. Thanks for the great Pilatus P3 footage. Brought back happy memories of last years flight in the PC7 (the red and white one in the background of the last few seconds of Slow Roll's footage) from Ambri. Any chance of PC7 footage?

Also FirefoxDown asked a few posts ago about the link I posted to Dutch glider pilots in Norway

"You ended up on oxygen - how high were you? Did you get towed all the way up or could you using the waves to get up there?"

I'm sorry to say it wasn't me in the gliders. I was just passing on the link but I would guess they were aero towed into the bottom of the wave and then climbed using it. They look well organised so I would guess they had oxygen if needed.

Slowroll. Lovely footage, lovely music (what is it?)

Pilatus P3's look like fun, shame about the strake (is that what it's called?) on the underside of the fuselage - looks like an afterthought to me.

The airplane looked like it was having fun, it's a shame the pilot was taking it all so seriously..

Which airfield was this?

Quick technical question now. I have downloaded them all and have them on my hard drive. If I copied them onto a cd, would I be able to watch them on my brand new all-singing-all-dancing DVD player that can play everything? I have a film, Black Hawk Down from a mate at work and that is a VCD. Can I save these clips as VCD format and play them on my DVD player.?
Cheers.

You sure can mate.
There are some great programs out there you could use.
Im thinking that most of these clips are in different formats which also isnt a problem cause it is a simple drag and drop idea were all the hard work is done by ur pc.
Ive forgotten the names of the software u can use..
I think even nero can do it.
Just search google or something for "mpg avi to vcd"

Mad Russian - that Extra video is bl**dy amazing, the roll-rate is unbelieveable. Not quite sure it's fun to do it, but it's good to watch

The music is "Secret Love" by a Greek artist 'Nicos'. Superb, although you wouldn't used it as 'Music on Hold' for the samaritans.

He's done a few albums, but they seem to be difficult to get outside of Greece. This particular track however can be found on Buddha Bar Vol 3, a compilation of various chilled world music mixed French DJ 'Ravin'.

Buddha Bar on Amazon

Smile Glad you enjoyed the video ! =0)

sorry, no PC7 footage for the time being (don't get many chances to fly in it ) but happy to hear you enjoyed your flight from ambri....it surely is a lovely aerodrome !!

SteveR

the ventral fin was indeed an afterthought. there have been a couple of instances where recovery from an upright flat spin was impossible and people died...following those accidents the spin characteristics of the P3 were intensively researched, however without success. it could never be ascertained what circumstances had caused the accidents. to avoid the possibility of this ever reoccurring it was decided that all P3 had to be fitted with a ventral fin. happy flying from then on !!

hehe...the pilot enjoyed it at least as much as the plane ....me was just trying to look cool

the airfield is ambri - LSPM - it's right in the middle of the swiss alps at 3'250ft....our P3 is based there ! here is a link to the airport web page: ambri airport

If you all thought the short 14 meg Extra 300 movie was OK, then I have the full 4.25 min version… includes lot’s of tumbles, torque rolls etc… the only snag is that the full quality version is a 200 meg file.

I don’t know enough about these things (but I suspect someone here will do though), but I guess that would need to be ‘streaming’?? Could it be done or is a video file that size just too big?

Mad Russian, how much web-space would be needed to host the entire file? I have just got another 20Mbs so if can fit on there then I will host it for you.

While I am here, does anyone know if I can get a free MPEG to VCD converter? I have searched Google but all the programmes want paying for and I don't want to pay for something I am hardly going to use. Idea being to make a CD to play on my DVD. Copies could be produced and sent off if people wanting all the clips on one disk. That's the theory anyway, no doubt someone will pipe-up complaining about copyright issues and all that nonsense......
