    Aviation Documentary Filming in July

    Hey everyone,

    I while back I was approached by a company that is interested in creating a documentary about aviation enthusiasm. After some planning it was decided that the best way to start would be by filming myself and all of us in action while we are out there doing what we do best.

    I'm looking to plan all kinds of spotting and aviation events for the month of July. Seeing as we are the focal point of this independent documentary, there’ll have to be a strong spotter presence at the local airports each Saturday and Sunday of every weekend in July. I'm also going to be trying to book an event at the Intrepid with the Concorde and other more exciting outings that you folks would enjoy so we can showcase our passion in different ways.

    All of you are more than welcome to invite all of your aviation friends to come out Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month at the airports or at other events. Just remember that everyone will need to sign a release form saying that they have no problem being filmed and so forth.

    Either way, I haven't had the chance to get out as much as I'd like to and I'm excited to join you folks as much as I can now that my time has freed up a bit.

    If you folks plan on coming out or if you have any questions, just shoot me an email or discuss in the forum's General Discussion thread.

    Look for more detailed information and spotting schedules in the coming weeks.

    Take care all,

    -Phil

    Looks like I'll have to make the trip up there at least one of those weekends... heck, I should have my new camera by then so it'd be good camera practice!

    I'll be available every weekend except the weekend of Juily 2-3 and also July 9. I'll be in Arizona during that time. But otherwise count me in for being out there with the gang. This is gonna be way cool!

    Now if there's one thing that'll make a cop come over to Planeview Park, this'll be it. :)

    I believe I'm good most weekends as well. This'll be wild.

    Cradle of Aviation?

    Why not take them to the Cradle of Aviation Museum for background on the area??? Lots of good information on Long Island/ NYC in aviation history.

    Funny though they have no mention of Zahns Airport, where I learned to fly many many years ago :)
    It's the fares, stupid

    Not a bad idea. I just wonder who would be willing to go out all the way out there. It's a bit of a trek for the city folk.
