Hi Rodney,

I really liked the fact that you took the time to setup your glidecam for a quick hit daily piece. THe opening grabbed my attention visually and the pacing with the music kept it there. Great work on the multiple camera angles while in the sky. 
THe ending seems rather abrupt though. From a storytelling point if she had explained why it was important to her to bring the barnstorming experience back I think that would help. From a visual point, it is cliche, but perhaps a shot of the plane flying away instead.
Overall, I really liked the piece.

Thanks for the look and comments. I got to about 1:30 in editing and bam no more B-Roll, doh. So It ends quickly, yes. I was trying not to linger on anything too long.
I'm trying to incorporate the glidecam in daily shoots but I always find when I get technical and worry about trying to add motion to the shots or fancy lighting I trip up and forget to get enough cover shots or really listen to the interviews and then get pertinent B-Roll.
