(Real) Citabria (F-Sim) Shuttle Mashup

UNREAD_POSTby FlyingSinger2 » Mon Apr 22, 2013 2:39 am

A couple of summers ago I was working on a tail-wheel endorsement in a Citabria, which unfortunately I did not complete, and even sadder, I haven't flown since (except on airlines and in sims). But I did a bunch of landings that summer with my instructor, some of which I recorded with a home-made VGA "hat cam" to help me remember my mistakes. I was noticing similarities in the sight-picture of these real (61 kt) landings vs. F-Sim (200 kt) simulated landings. So I decided to do a mash-up video just for fun:

(I rendered in HD even though the Citabria clips are only VGA).

The full Citabria landing video (and several others) can be found in this Flying set on my Flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/flyingsing ... 623031432/

If you're a shuttle fan :D - I also have a Flickr set of photos of Endeavour that I took a couple of months ago when I was in Los Angeles:

Most of my other Flickr photos are screen shots from the Orbiter space flight simulator (are you noticing any theme here? ;) ).
