One of our people accidentally came across this aircraft while on an unrelated assignment. We're following a few leads atm.

Loved it. You captured the Sunset Bar scene perfectly. I will flying down to SXM tomorrow morning and will keep my eyes open for those rare birds.

Bloody awesome vid! Top notch work.
For some good laughs look on Youtube for St. Maartin landings where the big birds come in low and silly folks get sand-blasted on that beach.

Now the thing is that when I compare that B377 to my shiny, beloved, BOAC one... I see things... And not just the different paint scheme (or that pretty lady on the tail, for that matter)... but it's... different. Hmm.

So. Stratotweaks and Stratotwiddles? Or video trickery and shenanigans?

A2A goes viral marketing? ;)

Nicely done! The video camera imitation was already very good but what really sells it is the realistic audio track.

I don't have the B377, so, does it have a flight attendant and guys in the cockpit or is this video sort of a confirmation about the rumoured crew add-on in the style of the B-17 crew (the B-17 being featured in the video would be another hint)?
