Cathay Pacific direct Adelaide-Hong Kong

Last week Aviation Media produced a video for www.5dme.net about the upcoming changes to Cathay Pacific’s routes from Adelaide. As of November 24th 2011, there will be 3 direct flights to Hong Kong from Adelaide each week.

The video is and overview with information by John McArdle, Adelaide Airport’s Corporate Relations Manager.

The interview used footage of a Cathay A330 shot previously (stock footage) and a current interview with Mr. McArdle.

5DME Premier Adelaide Aviation 3rd Anniversary

Nearly 3 years marked the starting of construction for the 5DME aviation web site. Well, three years later it is over 120 pages, thousands of photos and all the stories on the latest aviation news from South Australia fill the pages.

The team has grown from just David and Rob and the site now covers several airfields from Goolwa to Edinburgh RAAF base and abroad.

5DME have endeavoured to include everyone from aviation, no matter what their job or where they fit in. All too often everything and everyone but the planes and pilots are forgotten. It has been policy to promote aviation as a whole.

5DME have moved from just photographs to the production of informative videos using David’s 25 years experience in television. This has added another facet to the web site to generate interest in aviation.

Enough said, just take a look for yourself. www.5dme.net

Adelaide Airport Video 2-8-11

This week there were some major changes going on at Adelaide Airport with the opening of the new Western Link Road. On Monday night, 1st August 2011 the WATPAC construction crews adjusted the barricades to close off Sir Richard Williams Avenue to allow further construction of the new Multi Level Car Park. Traffic is being redirected down Jame Schofield Drive and the new roadway that was constrcted across the old General Aviation (GA) area.

Patricia and I were there at about 2330 hours producing a video for www.5dme.net which you may have seen on the front page of this site. We used some new gear that I have mentioned in the Blog before, a suction/limpet mount system on the car for the cameras.

The limpet mount performed excellently! Vibration was at a minimum and the Active Steadyshot in the camera took care of the rest. The 3 points of contact with the mount increased the stability enormously.

Also, we did not use any lighting for the talking head pieces as we wanted to reflect the hour of the day. The street lighting was enough for the Exmor sensor in the camera.

Here is the video:
