    How in the world did you get permission to fly in that area? LOL!

    Great footage and I admit I'd love to fly that area but dang it's some seriously crowded airspace.

    Fantastic flying and filming along with editing and choice of music. Some nice footage for sure - great job!

    I guess the questions are......are you someone who works for them and got the "ok".........are you someone with a big balls.........or, are you someone who says "rules......what rules"? LOL!

    I meant; why would you need permission? I don't see anything restricted about trains, train tracks, parked train cards and associated hard roof buildings. Fly away.

    DiB any chance you took the time to look at a sectional chart to see what airspace this was shot in? Unless I missed something it's in Class Bravo (some of the busiest in the nation) from 7000' to the surface. I circled the approximate area where the train yard is with a red circle and red arrow just click on the thumbnail below.

    I'm not saying anything bad against the OP and merely asked a simple question.

    I believe it's not within restricted airspace

    I highly suggest we keep this thread on topic and not venture into personal attacks on ANY level.

    He appears to NOT be in Bravo class airspace. I assume over private property and the way they are with most railroads and train yards I imagine they would find something to make you have a bad day. Cool shots none the less! :)

    From the sectional charts it looks like he is flying below class E airspace that starts at 700' with class B airspace above that starting at 1,500'. So that should make below 700' class G airspace where he looks to have been flying.

    Assuming all was legal, nice flying.

    It's further south - below the "CRI" notation for Cararsie - in Class G underneath Class E 1500-7000'.
