A preview of a video documenting the transportation of the three pieces of NASA's FFT from Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas to the Museum of Flight in Seattle. NASA's Super Guppy aircraft was used to fly the trainer sections to Seattle, making three trips over the course of the summer of 2012.
The current iteration of the video was uploaded on Jan. 30, 2013.
The video was shot over the course of several months, with a variety of cameras:
• GoPro Hero2 (six on board the Super Guppy on two separate delivery flights)
• Canon 5D Mark II (three; these were used for the majority of the ground footage at the museum in Seattle)
• Canon 1D Mark IV (one; cockpit footage, all ground footage from California)
• Canon 60D (one; remote ground footage from Seattle)
On the HDDSLRs, a variety of lenses were used: the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon T* ZE, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L, the Canon 70-200 f/2.8L, and the Canon 70-300 f/3.5-5.6L.
Editing was done in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, the footage was logged and selected using CatDV, and the files shared from an EVO by Studio Network Solutions.
The entire project was made possible through the generous and patient support of the Museum of Flight's public relations and security staff, the kind and über-helpful folks at Johnson Space Center's Imagery Acquisition Group who helped decide camera placement and mounted the cameras on the Super Guppy in Houston, the Super Guppy flight crews who managed the cameras during the flights, and the generous support of Glazer's Camera in Seattle, who let us raid their rental department on more than one occasion, and did so with smiles and plenty of encouragement.
