MD-80’s are retiring

After many years of venerable service, the MD-80’s in the American Airlines fleet are being retired. I had a great flight aboard one recently and had the good fortune to make his short video:

The pilots were great guys, giving me the opportunity to capture footage with my Osmo Pocket camera. Thanks to them and American Airlines.

Osmo Pocket, timelapse

Learning the features and techniques of the Osmo Pocket has been fun. During a recent trip, I experimented with the time-lapse function, which works very well. Here’s how it turned out:

This video was made looking through a plate glass window on a cloudy day. It came out rather well for a simple exercise. The ease of use of this camera is astounding. Give it a try.

Delaware Bay Anchorage

We interrupt the postings from Spain for this photo taken on a southbound flight over the Delaware Bay. Look closely and you’ll see ships in the anchorage.

American Airlines Flight 740 to Madrid

Just for fun, I made a little video showing the takeoff, meals, and landing on American Airlines Flight 740 from Philadelphia to Madrid, Spain.

 

It was a great flight. Excellent crew, good food, and safe. Looking forward to many more like this.
