I find that watching the flight that you're on flying over these different sections of Queens, Manhattan, etc. fascinating. I've taken a few trips out towards the Midwest & the South (I've also travelled to Arizona & Calif. yrs. ago.) during last Summer (2009) & this Spring (2010). So, I stumbled onto people taking Videos on YouTube of their flight taking off or arriving as well as let's say flying OVER New Jersey or Manhattan when their plane is ALREADY up in the sky.

Anyway, I wanted to know since these people are able to do so

1) Are they Allowed to do this?

OR

2) Do they have to "Get Permission"?? Meaning in 1 Vid I saw that there was a Comment asking the person who took the Video "how did that person get to take a Video w/out anyone knowing". The Answer that he/she gave was that "the flight attendants were sitting in front of the plane & so he/she was able to do this" (& I think he said "W/out them knowing").

3) Are these people able to get thru Security? (Would this a Security thing - issue?)

4) Would you have to give your reasons for doing this?
4a) If so, How do they get passed Security?

I know you're allowed to listen to your I-Pods & use Cell Phones (also I know that there are certain times in which the Flight Attendants will ask you to turn them off), but I'm not really sure about this.

So this is the 1st Vid that had pointed this out where compared to this 1 Vid all the other Vids that other people took there was NO MENTION (or an "ISSUE") of being NOT ALLOWED to take a Vid.

In case I'm Not Allowed to do this Please Apply the Same Questions above for Taking Pics (I'd like to use this as another alternative). I'm interested in this as well.

I'm open to any suggestions or comments.

How is would this affect getting through airport security? How do you think tourists carry-on their video and still cameras?

Technically, your portable electronic devices (anything with an on/off switch) should remain off until the plane's reached its cruising altitude (typically 10,000 ft.). They used to say it was due to interference with navigational systems, but that's been debunked.

Anyway, it doesn't pose any sort of issue or threat. If a flight attendant were to see you doing it, they'd simply as you to turn off the camera or whatever you were using.

Loratliff,

I wasn't sure about this. I just felt it strange to see or read that particular Vid comment on YouTube where I never heard such a thing on those other Vids. Ok, so what you're saying is that There is NO PROBLEM w/ bringing Cameras &/Or Video Cams on board.

But you said that "if a flight attendant were to see me doing it (DOING WHAT?) they'd simply ask me to turn it off". Meaning they'll just re-iterate that I would need to turn it off due to the plane reaching its cruising altitude?

I just want to clarify that I'm understanding you. Oh, & COOL!! You seem like you know about Aviation. I Never knew WHY you were asked to turn electronic devices off at certain times.

Check with individual airlines; there may be different policies about that kind of thing.

Turning off the device at take-off and landing is an FAA regulation, but yes, perhaps other airlines may have issues with photos or videos being taking during flight (although I've never found that to be the case).

And yes, if they saw you using your camera near take-off or landing, they'd simply ask you to turn it off. It's not a big debacle.
