Nice work Ultralights. The only thing I can suggest to make it better for next time is to try and get the same pics on NYE when the fireworks are happening :-)

I doubt you would get a clearance coinciding with ignition time.

we had planned a new years eve flight, and yes, you can orbit the harbour at 2100ft as the fireworks are going off, we did that on 2012 NYE, sadly, didnt have a quality lens that timeso pics are a bit blurry.
As for the NYE just passed, we had a plan in the system, but broken cloud at 2300ft coming in at 10pm ruined that flight.

this is one of the better shots of NYE 2012

Interesting video on youtube here.

They are headed to the Bahamas to check out a small yacht wreck, however it features some good seaplane action as well as an aviation related surprise at the 9 minute mark.

I certainly hope the suction mount is sucking hard !

I assume this is a jump ship and if it fell off perhaps someone can go after it!

Thanks Ultraights, now you've spoilt all those people chiming in saying how it will fall off when they get to 8,000ft

That photo taken from the rear door of a Seneca V ... in Brazil?

Probably not a Jump Ship. More likely a Photo Ship.
