AOPA Article Video Shoot

Wow what a crazy two days....the AOPA came down and did a full photo and video shoot in addition to a follow up interview.  I can't wait to see the article (it's scheduled for September issue of AOPA Flight Magazine)

On Tuesday I got to the airport very early to take some morning drone footage while the airport was nice and quiet.  We ended up shooting videos for almost 3 hours, it's so interesting to see how all of that comes together to produce a small piece on the internet.  I can't wait to see the finished product.

On Wednesday the other members of the AOPA came in from Maryland to do follow up interviews and to shoot some one on one video interviews.  I can't wait to see how that turns out, we ended up recording almost 3 hours of video and spent another hour taking pictures.

Here are just a few of the RAW video from the shoot.  These videos have no edits but still really cool shots...


  1. Hi Joseph,,, I have followed this wonderful trip since day 1.
    At least I think I was there at the very start, Im not sure.
    I started with the reddit post that turned into this blog.
    But I have a confusion.
    I dont know when for sure this really happened...
    I thought I could tell from my old readings that it was
    April, 22, 2015,,, but now im not so sure, the dates and
    times change in the blogs and dont seem accurate.
    Sooo what I am wanting to know is,,, "What Date",, did you meet up
    with the owner and really make the deal to Buy his old Airplane??

    other than that,, I am sooo very jazzed for you...
    and what you have accomplished during this time,,,
    and thank you for bringing us all along for this ride!!!
    your pics and Videos are a wonderful addition to this blog!

  2. I bought the plane Tuesday April 21st 2015 and posted the reddit thread the next day.
