Great video. Thanks for sharing. Always nice to see KLM blue 5000 miles from home gliding in for a greaser landing!
One tip I have learned. Make a shoulder support for your panning shots. A very effective way [almost produces steady cam quality!!] and very simple and cheap, is to use a beam of approx 3ft length. Get a camera mount head at your local photoshop dealer to connect your camera to this beam. Make a nice pad under the beam that nicely sits ON your should; not against your shoulder like a shot gun, but ON/OVER your shoulder. This now will ensure that your panning shots look like pro-steady-shots. It's just amazingly good.
Even better would be to use a small/light beam [wood or preferably aluminum], and mount two 1 lb weights on either end. This will increase stability even better. The longer the beam, the better stability you'll have. The length of the beam is determined by your comfort level [and level of attention you want to draw from law enformcement officers . . . ].
You can all make this yourself [except maybe the camera mount head], and gives you high quality shots for low price!

PW100, While I appreciate the tips, I do not take filming all that seriously. That said, if I showed up at Lee Road with what you suggest, the cops would down me for trying to take down a plane with some shoulder launched rocket system... long before I managed to film aircraft...
