Finally. We have both great aerial river video and some good stereo work. This frame from the video shows the Hwy 13 bridge over the Big Muddy River in Murphysboro, Illinois.
Working on the video this morning, I thought we'd blown it. Somebody, we're still trying to figure out who, but somebody on the aircraft put their big mitts on the the cams and adjusted their pitch in flight, messing up the alignment. But John's great flying made up for it, and this pass over the bridge, with close tree tops and the bridge and its light poles, gave just the right combination of objects and distance. It looks very cool in stereo.
