Bellingham to Skagit Regional Airport


For Christmas, Wayne got me (us) a Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 action camera. Up until now I've used my pocket camera for iPhone to take video clips. Now we have something even better.

On New Years Day we went flying in our Piper Arrow.


Wayne mounted the Garmin camera on the dashboard and we let it run throughout our trip to Skagit Regional Airport about thirty minutes away.



After we got home, I edited the raw footage down to a short YouTube video. Click on the button above and you can fly with us from our home base at Bellingham International Airport to Skagit.

Do you have an action camera? What do you have and how do you use it? -- Margy

  2. I love your video and thank you for shortening it.

    I have a go pro clone. I attach it to the handlebars of my bicycle and have it take several still shots a minute. Typical ride has thousands of shots but I always find a half dozen or so keepers.

  4. Yesterday someone asked me, oddly, if I were to be a helicopter what kind would I like to be and how many rotter blades would I choose. I didn't know how to answer but I have now decided if I were a plane I'd like to be a red Piper Arrow.

  5. Cool in every way! We have a Go Pro that we have used to capture video during scuba dives; we also used it last year for time lapse capture of our log home re-set. You have inspired me to learn how to post videos to my blog, which I have NOT done. Have a fabulous weekend!

  6. That's such an awesome video! Small planes are special and much more scenic than larger ones.

  11. Wow - that was fun! What a great way to record videos of your flights. I only have the video on my cell phone - or I suppose I could use the kindle fire - but it is so bulky. I so often forget to make a video until too late.

    1. Unfortunately this last trip to Bellingham didn't give us a good flying day. Hopefully during our March visit. I've taken some pretty good video on my iPhone and then transferred it to my laptop to make into a movie. - Margy
