I have a Sony Camcorder, and I have taken it down to Sydney Kingsford Smith a couple of times to see what filming planes is like.
I would like to know how to put them on to the computer, and what I would have to buy.
Maybe the head of Airliners.net could create a new section for people with camcorders and the special cards etc. to post small video files of take offs, landings (maybe crashes, Heaven forbid), this would capture the motion of the aircraft more than a photo can.
There could also be short films of tours inside the aircraft and in the cockpit, even while it is taking off, cruising, landing.
