Airshow

Sun Jun 16, 2002 5:22 pm

Here's a question about Airshow. Is there a way to tape-record the presentation?

Yes, with your video camera, like I do.

Do you mean the audio? Bring a tape recorder with you and pick a spot close to a speaker along the flightline. Or use a video cam.
What's another word for thesaurus?

Do you mean airshows in general, or the Airshow system used on many commerical flights to show your position, speed, etc? To record this, you'd need a video camera, and just point it at the PTV screen, or the overhead screen in the cabin. I'm not sure I understand the question exactly, doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.

Another thing you can do if the airline's version of Airshow gives your latitude/longitude co-ordinates is to write these down every now and then, and after your flight enter these figures into the Great Circle calculator at http://gc.kls2.com/. This will show exactly what track your flight took. This is particularly interesting on transatlantic routes.

Sorry, I wasn't clear about what I meant on the original post. I'm talking about the "Airshow system used on many commerical flights to show your position, speed, etc." I don't mean pointing my video camera at the screen; I mean, could I stick a VHS tape in one of the aircraft's VCRs and "recording" the presentation; or would I have to arrange to hook up RCA cables from the Airshow unit to a separate VCR?
