Lee A Tregurtha Arrival Duluth 7/1/2015 - (Buzz)

Since the Lee A Tregurtha is one of my favorite boats, I sent Buzz up again today with his camera to take a closer look. I also used some audio from the harborcams as background sound this time.

    Magnificent! To see these long boats from a different perspective is always a thrill. As an old sailor, I've always wondered what it would be like to be on the bridge of the ship as it passed under the lift bridge. Almost made it today. Someday, maybe video from inside the bridge lift house, seeing what the operator does and watching the vessel slide by below.

  12. I was wondering how you got the audio without hearing Buzz's motors! It would be cool if you could swing over to the north pier sometime and catch the crowd, maybe even go under the bridge behind a boat. Thanks for the great views from Buzz!

  13. Hi Ken,
    Buzz does not have audio - all you would hear is (BUZZZZZZZ)
    I copied the sound from the Canal Cam and pasted it into the Buzz video.
    As far as the North Pier flyover, because Buzz is part of my business, I have some very restrictive flight rules laid out by the FAA that I must follow. ie, less then 500ft, not over any person, daytime only, line-of-sight only, etc, etc --- that's why I keep Buzz on a short leash and always operate in the safest and most controlled methods possible. I also have a lot of liability insurance.
