B17 Bomber Start up and Take off
I decided to set all three of my cameras on HD this time and set them at different zooms to film this B-17 starting up. I realize I all ready showed this taking off but if I didn't put that in the video over time I'd just get a bunch of complaints that I should have shown it taking off or flying.... - I usually don't use my Casio EXF1's to film HD with but they actually work quite well. My Panasonic has very good image stabilization compared to the Casio's. I layered the clips from the three cameras in my editor and sync'd them up. I picked the best audio of the three clips. - Joey from LivinBoB (YT channel from my home town) was covering the Memorial Day flight and was filming a news piece for the TV station he works for. He got a ride in the bomber in the nose-gunner position- but almost missed the flight.





After 67 years, WWII pilot takes flight in B-17
At 90, Merv Karl of Park Ridge, Ill., once again took to the skies in a B-17 bomber – this time as a passenger rather than a pilot; Karl piloted 35 combat missions in World War II. The ride on the B-17 was part of Wings Over Waukesha activities.
