Do it correctly.

Suction cup stuck to the glass in one's immediate front with the camera looking forward screwed to the bendy arm thingy which is secured by the cup. Fly and ignore the camera. The arraignment gives a good result and over the years I've built up an archive of TO/ App/ Ldg/ Taxi video. But don't try to fly by looking through the camera as things will then become a bit wobbly. Actually, things will become extremely very wobbly indeed. (You've been warned.)

I think this kind of thing happens everyday now, not saying its right of course but I guess the job has become so repetitive and mind numbing that this is what people resort to

If you have a real passion for flying, it will always be a fascinating profession. Not ever mind numbing.
Having said that, it has changed from from the good old days.

Agree. I use a dashcam (too poor to afford a go pro). All my hand held videos are too wobbly.

It makes me very worried.
Doctors are smarter because they can bury their mistakes, which are numerous.

Not sticking up for them obviously - but what you hear after the 1000’ EGPWS is the landing checklist not a request for ‘gear down’..

So can pilots - but then usually only once.

Are there any regulations that restrict firework displays near airports?

I can't say how it is regulated in any other country, but for us in Finland it is regulated: the organizer has to make an application for the use of fireworks to the local safety authorities well in advance, stating eg area in which the show is to be held and explain that it does not jeopardise any form of traffic, whether in the air or on the ground.
in essence, if one would apply for a fireworks permit next to an active runway short finals, it would most probably be denied by authorities.

As stated, I have no knowledge how it works in any other country, but I would imagine it works somewhat the same way in most countries.

some people tend to think it is flak, there was an article that in UK alone, during this millennium, there has been several direct hits of fireworks leaving scorch marks on aircrafts.

edit: uk caa guidelines: publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplication.aspx?appid=11&mode=detail&id=1108

quote:
4 Additional Guidelines for Firework Displays
4.1 Aerial fireworks displays should be limited to a height of 1,500 ft above ground level. Any firework conforming to BS7114/BS EN 14035-36 will not exceed this height.
4.2 Displays within a ten nautical mile radius of an active aerodrome or within an Aerodrome Traffic Zone (ATZ)1 may require notification and co-ordination action and must be notified by the EO to the CAA for consideration.
