FSX Movie | Mayday | HD

September 3, 2011

This has been by far the longest project its taken around 2 weeks work, I have tried to make this movie have a small story if you didn’t get what was going on it was a crashed Cessna 152 which the search and rescue in HH-60G to look for the crash site. At the same time a delta 757 has dual engine failure and turns to glide back to Tampa. Shout-outs: Voices: ATC: Christopher Murphy HH-60G pilot 1: JoshuaSkeen (dust off 1) ” ” pilot 2: Mike Carpenter ( dust off 2) Both pilots were from the 41st RQS check them out at fsxfleet.com There were 2 choppers who flew the mission but a playback issue with FS recorded meant that you cant have more than one playing back at one time and many other pains.

Army Fixed Wing Flight Training

December 29, 2009

This footage shows Army fixed wing flight training activities during a nine month period in 1968. The film was taken at Fort Stewart, GA and Fort Rucker, AL. Each training class was comprised of between 25-30 commissioned officers and distinguished by the color of their hats. This particular group of officers was known as the "Gold Hat" class. Initial scenes are of primary training at Ft. Stewart, where officers were taught basic flying skills in the Army’s T-41 Mescalero (a modified Cessna 172). Scenes at Ft. Stewart include footage of the Army’s T-41 training fleet at Wright Army Airfield (AAF) and pilots practicing takeoffs and landings on unimproved grass strips at Ft. Stewart. Advanced training at Fort Rucker was conducted in Army T-42 Beech Baron twin engine aircraft and the Cessna O-1 "Birddog" aircraft. The training pilots received in the Baron led to their multiengine and instrument ratings as Army pilots. The training in the "Dog" was tactical in nature and oriented towards preparing the new aviators for assignments upon graduation: a combat flying tour in Vietnam. There most would be flying the Birddogs in combat support activities such as reconnaissance, direction of artillery and naval gunfire, and forward air control. The T-42 footage shows officers being bused to Cairns AAF and activities from a typical training flight. In this sequence the pilot is receiving training flying with a hood and culminates the day’s training with an instrument approach to Cairns AAF. The Birddog footage is taken at several satellite fields at Fort Rucker. Pilots are seen practicing landings over fifty foot obstacles, preflight activities, low level flying (dead reckoning), and the film ends with a scene showing the completion of a tactical 360 degree overhead approach and landing in a Birddog. – Great to see a well documented movie. This home movie should be very interesting to those who were at Fort Stewart, Geortgia and Fort Rucker, Alabama in the late 1960’s.
thanks for the trip down memory lane. I was a Catkiller from March 1969 – March 1970. Became a Flight commander for the Tactics portion of the Bird Dog phase closing out the Bird Dog training in 1972. Thanks for the ride!

Nasa Ares 1 Arial Footage Shot From Cessna Skymaster October 28 2009

November 28, 2009


An aerial video crew observed the October 28, 2009 Ares I-X test flight from a Cessna Skymaster aircraft positioned approx. 10 nautical miles away from the vehicle at an altitude of 12,000 feet. The videographer used a gyro-stabilized high-definition camera system mounted to the outside of the aircraft to capture this spectacular footage. This footage provides extremely valuable engineering data, and imagery of the recovery sequence in rarely-seen detail.
Ares I-X is the first flight test of the Constellation Program and provides NASA an early opportunity to gather critical data during vehicle ascent and during booster deceleration and recovery.

Colgan Flight 3407 NTSB Animation of Buffalo Accident Q400

May 18, 2009

Courtesy: National Transportation Safety Board

The NTSB.GOV website keeps going down, so here’s the animation.

This three-dimensional (3-D) animated reconstruction shows the last 2 minutes of the February 12, 2009, accident involving a Bombardier DHC-8-400, N200WQ, operated by of Colgan Air, Inc., which crashed about 5 nautical miles northeast of Buffalo-Niagara International Airport, Buffalo, New York, while on an instrument landing system approach to runway 23. During the approach, a pitchup motion occurred, followed by a left roll and then a right roll. During these maneuvers, both the stick shaker and stick pusher were activated, and the speed decreased. After further pitch and roll excursions, the airplane entered a steep descent from which it did not recover.
The animation shows excerpts from the flight data recorder (FDR), the pit voice recorder (CVR) transcript, recorded radar data, and aircraft performance data. It does not depict the weather or visibility conditions at the time of the accident. The animation does not include audio.
The upper portion of the animation shows a 3-D model of the airplane and the airplanes motions during the accident sequence. In this area, selected content from the CVR transcript or other annotations are superimposed as text at the time that the event occurred. All times (in eastern standard time) are shown on the right side of the screen.
The lower portion of the animation depicts instruments and indicators, which display selected FDR or calculated parameters. The instruments and indications are shown in three sections, which are (from left to right):
•Airspeed, airspeed tape, low speed cue, attitude indicator showing pitch and roll attitude, altitude, altitude tape, rate of climb, and heading;
•Stick shaker and stick pusher indicated as text, control wheel/column icon depicting the control wheel (rotating right or left) and control column (moving up or down) inputs, and an indicator showing rudder pedal inputs; and
•The power lever and condition lever as indicators, the flap handle selection as an indicator, and auto pilot status and gearhandle position indicated as text.
