Shot with a Nikon D90 and both the 10-24mm and 18-200mm. All of the shots are tripod-mounted still video, as opposed to still photos. The slow zooms were added after the fact. I have to apologize for the lousy pans though. those were done while shooting. I hadn't planned on shooting much video and my tripod had only a tiny ball head at the time.

The airplanes were collected through the 60s and 70s by Ohio resident Walter Soplata, who passed away in November 2010. The collection is not open to the public. Since Mr. Soplata's passing the collection is being organized and sold off to museums and restorers. I have no contact information for those who are dealing with the airplanes.

The music in the video is "Behold A Republic" by Gurdonark, and was found on ccmixter.org. It features audio of a campaign speech by William McKinley from 1896, as well as a speech by Dwight D. Eisenhower from August of 1959.
