Thanks for the post.  Overall length is hard to use since the camera was
too close to the taxiway, and on the larger aircraft the fuselage does
not fit on the screen all at once.  While we can stop the frame and
piece together the length, that may be subject to error.  The screen is
just a bit wider than the wheelbase on the larger planes. We now have
during one sequence a Beech Kingair, which is small enough we ARE going
to use the overall length of that shot to calibrate the setup for those

Now, if I could just get the guys to set the camera at the same spot
each day, and use the same focal length!   :-)
