Airliners In Slow Motion... Artsy Video From Simon Lowe (Must See)


 I've been in a bit of a posting slump here over the Christmas season... I seem to be a bit under-motivated here lately (might be old age creeping up on me)

 The video above is helping to perk me up tho! It's another great airliner video from Simon Lowe's youtube channel and it's got just the right amount of art, music, and airplanes. This is definitely a good one for 1080p HD and full screen... plus, detail freaks like me should find themselves very satisfied with all there is to see.

 It also reminds me of the days when I was about 8 years old in the late 1960's when my dad (who was flying as a 727 captain for United at the time) would take me out to the approach end of runway 24 at LAX for us to watch the airplanes land up close. We'd go at night and on his motorcycle because we could get a lot closer to the end of the runway that way than were really supposed to. There was that wonderfully loud old-tech turbine noise... the huge rush of air being pushed down by the wing right after the airplane went by... and then the smell of burning rubber once the wind would blow the smoke back our way. We'd even hear some whipping wingtip vortices once in a while too.

 Wow, I loved those days.

Awesome Lowe video! I remember when Simon first uploaded it. He really captures (as we Avgeeks all know) aviation in motion... very well.

Great nostalgic story as well, Martt!
