Well - straight ahaed!

Such a trip itself has itīs risk, even flying high. I try to minimize it with good preparation (which I admit define for myself and listening to others and more experienced and trained pilots). Now flying low there is another level and yes there where a few minutes I relied on the engine. As others said sometimes take the risk and live. Nobody else endangered and I donīt regret it.
BTW where to land when taking off over densely populated area with a single engine or a loaded twin like a Seneca I at 90 deg F ?

Awesome trip and an excellent video. A great motivator to keep on pushing to finish my build. Thanks for sharing!

Default Camera power

Very cool, pun included, flying.
How does one keep multiple cameras powered for long flights? Do you have them wired to aircraft power? During long flights do you turn on the camera with wifi during good stuff and off when just not so exciting?

That was epic! You trust your airplane and skills, more risk driving down the road! If something did happen what a way to go!

Just to correct any misunderstanding from Doug's front page intro. This is Hermann Schiele's flight and video.

Probably better known to many of you from his tour of the US and Oshkosh in 2019 - https://vansairforce.net/community/s...d.php?t=172403

Check out his other YT videos for some more spectacular filming.

I'm hoping to meet up with him at the LAA fly-in at Popham in the UK in a few weeks time

Pierre and Bob, not sure why you have to post your thoughts on alternative engines here. Have a Sube customer who's flown the equivalent of almost 5 times around the world, no forced landings yet...

Any engine can fail, Subaru, Lycoming, PT6, CF6 etc.

Can we just enjoy the amazing journey depicted in this video?
