Here is a clip of one of the most remarkable take offs you are likely to see at a weeding. :hmm:

My question is; will the proliferation of cameras along with the ease of distribution through "You Tube" encourage or discourage this kind of flying?

It was a weeding all right, he nearly weeded himself out of the gene pool :p

good vision for the next episode of 'dumber and dumber' or alternatively a fine example of the the concept of being promoted to the point of incompetence.

In Australia we confiscate the cars of hoon drivers doing burnouts etc...maybe the same should apply to the pilots of wayward a/c?

A deserving conclusion would be that the bride chucked up and he spent the next 3 hours cleaning it.

Why would you do that?

Hoon car drivers probably misbehave for the camera and You Tube fame, but do pilots?

Who needs journalists when the world has You Tube!

Was drawn to You Tube footage yesterday by the title of a clip, true to the title the clip showed a dodgy picture from an aerial camera system.

The picture could have been faked, but the name of the camera company was evident in the clip so damage done.

I think uncensored You Tube footage like this may do as much damage to business and reputation and be as misleading as a hungry hack....
