London City, A Microlight And Some Geese. - Vid

Fri Dec 30, 2011 9:05 am

Quite incredible views of London City Airport, including BA's A318s.. Can't see posted here yet, but suprised, so I've probably missed something..

Hope it's available internationally.

Love the shot of the trike flying towards the camera and the 747 flying away.

I guess over east London the 747 would be about 5-6000ft.

Also good to see the link worked in the US. Some BBC vids don't.

Makes one wonder why this pilot is hand-rearing geese; is it for filmmaking purposes or are there more useful objectives such as those pioneered 20 years ago by Bill Lishman; the first person to train geese to follow his ultralight? Lishman was aiming towards the reestablishment of migration patterns for certain avian species.
The nice thing about a mistake is the pleasure it gives others.
