I just found this video on youtube. Never seen anything like this here.

747 - Stowaway view

highlights:

1) the breaking system before gear retraction
2) some debree being collected by the engine at 3:47

Now that was awesome, really enjoyed that.
Questions? How was the camera fixed in place? Duck tape?
Where was the assistant director seating?  



you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

Very Interesting viewing point.
Nice example of the retract braking in action.
Guess the camera was high speed taped with Tiewraps.

Just curious was this an experimental flight,as I dont think one can fit a camera on a scheduled pax flight without regulatory permission.



Think of the brighter side!

There are similar videos on youtube, all by cargo folks..

Exactly.....without regulatory permission it would not be possible to fit an external cam for recording on the MLG....

Can't an engineer decide that this contraption is safe, signs the appropriate paper and off you go?

If done legally, then that is regulatory permission. In order to have that authority, the engineer signing the appropriate paper has to have delegated authority from the regulator.

MK Airlines. These two very relevant to the OP's video:

The second video shows how the first one was made.

Balleka's videos are a real highlight on youtube.

Any alteration requires an approval in print.

Just grease and fluids lifting the topcoat paint...

Excess grease should be wiped off after exiting post lubrication,to avoid/reduce this grease flinging around in flight.
