Videos / Screenshots

The video linked here was taken by Brian Van Speybroeck (known variously on the forums as himself, Gglas, or Galloglas), who was parked at KBWI observing the first part of the event. There's some good capture of some of the ATC dialogue. Thanks Brian!

Redneck was also gracious enough to video his flight to and from as well, as he has done for every event so far. Here are part 1 and part 2. Thanks again!

And below are some screenshots from a variety of sources. Each one's author is credited in the caption above.
