    Most of my videos are in the story telling realm. But someone asked about just seeing the raw footage from a recent flight from Dixie Town to Wilson Bar. It's a ten minute flight through some beautiful country. Not really my cup of tea, but maybe its yours? I don't know, but I'm curious to hear if anyone enjoyed it. Otherwise, I'll likely not do many like this.

    I liked it.

    Beats most of the videos that some post on here giving the vast knowledge they gained in their PP training or their rants against flight schools.

    I also enjoyed the lack of an attempt to be funny or satirical. Far too much of that going on.

    Beautiful scenery is one of the main reasons I fly. I wouldn't mind seeing more.

    Good to me, I just did that exact flight a few weeks ago and didn’t have video so this is a good reminder! Thanks for posting.

    Liked it. Beautiful scenery. We don’t get to see that here in Florida.

    There's a mute button you know. :rolleyes: So many pilots are so damn particular about the stinking MUSIC in these videos that they can't see the airplane. If you don't like it that much then either don't comment or mute the video and play whatever you'd like to hear on another youtube video for the audio.

    Making and editing these videos is not at all a simple or easy task to just scoff at someone's work because they don't have the exact same taste in music as you is a bit over-the-top.

    Great video @rwellner98!

    lol! Yeah, I don't get it. But to each their own. To me the white noise of a hundred miles an hour of wind blowing on the mic for ten minutes doesn't sound appealing, but maybe he uses it as white noise to fall asleep. More power to him. :)
