Movies from my trip to Chamela, Mexico

Alex took a number of movies. Mostly of the flying but a few just around the area also.

My second landing at Chamela after I took Alex and Mike and Memo up for a photo flight around the area. The clouds were just starting to come in and it had just begun to rain.

A Mexican Navy helicopter landed and dropped off some soldiers to check out the plane. Chamela doesn't get very much air traffic so we must have looked suspicious. They asked the rancher who maintains the strip a couple of questions and went on their way.

I think this must have been Mike shooting from the back (you can see Alex shooting from the front) departing Puerta Vallarta.

Over Island Bay, about to pass by Alex's place Villa Vista Hermosa which you can see on the hill to the right on our way back to the airstrip.

Villa Vista Hermosa passes under the right wing tip as we buzz the house (from a very safe distance of course) to let them know to come down to the strip and pick us up.

Another great landing at Chamela. You can hear Mike commenting from the passengers seat. We had just returned from a flight to Puerta Vallarta to drop someone off and pick up another person going to the villa.
