Aerial View of New Jersey.

A friend took me on a flight in his single-engine Scout airplane. We took off at the nearby Princeton Airfield. I was able to see the local highschool, the J&J site, my backyard, and the local mine. The mine used to be owned by 3M, but is now owned by Gibralter Rock. We also saw the Merck Corporate headquarters at Whitehouse station (large hexagon building).  During the flight I took images with my new Nikon 1 V1 camera using the 10-100 mm VR lens. I also took video images of take-off and landings as viewed from the back seat. I made a movie using both time-lapsed images and the video clips. It still needs to be edited (currently 10 minutes, and no background music).
