New EAA1418 aviation weather cams at Murray Field

Thanks to generous donations from Cal-Ore Life Flight and AOPA member Joel Mann, four state-of-the-art ThorMax2200 Cameras will be mounted at the Murray Field FBO, Northern Air.

Shown below, the ThorMax2200 camera incorporates the latest in video, remote network and stealth/camouflage technologies.  Certified by the FAA, TSA, Homeland Security, NSA, FBI and the CIA, this camera is designed to provide images of unparalleled quality while concealing its' true capabilities behind a veneer of seemingly worthless garbage.

Four cameras will be mounted to provide images of all four compass points.  Stay tuned for details.

Aviation weather cams have special benefits when they are in beautiful settings.  The Headlands Cam (for aviators the Northwest Weather Cam) at the Inn of the Lost Coast is my favorite.

Lost Coast Aviators President Lindsay Locke and Master Technician Hans Koster are visiting Murray Field in Eureka, tomorrow.  (Thurs. 5.12.11)   Lindsay will also be visiting Jack Mc Namara Field Airport in Crescent City, CA tomorrow to reconnoiter the facilities for the potential placement of four EAA1418 Aviation Weather Cams.

Pictures will be taken.  Video will be filmed.  Measuring tapes will be un-rolled.  And hopefully some hob-nobbing and hanger talk with the locals will transpire.

Cal-Ore Life Flight uses both Murray and Mc Namara Fields (among others).  Cal-Ore Life Flight is partially funding the installation of four EAA 1418 Aviation Weather Cams at Murray Field in Eureka, (some time in the next two weeks).  They are also fully funding four cameras at their new hanger at Arcata Airport, (which is actually nearer to McKinleyville.)  Friday's journey to Crescent City is to see if cameras would "work" there too.  Probably.

Yesterday we recieved word that there is interest in Kneeland for cameras at the airport there.  Kneeland is a Humboldt County Airport used by CalFire.  (We all love those folks big time around here.)  So we're going to go and try and make that happen just like we did all the rest.  Our original plan had Kneeland next on the list, so the fact that we were contacted first is a really good sign.

The picture above is from the Cal-Ore Life Flight website.  Two airports and two great organizations who use them.  For saving lives.  For saving trees.  Maybe yours.  Wanna donate?  Send an email to Lindsay.


A nice day for flying

A nice day for flying in Humboldt County.  Here's the proof.

Livin' on the edge... of California.  Here are handful of pix, all taken today from our cameras and one from Hans' very special cams... you can find if you dig enough.  All this beauty.
