Lockwood Aircraft’s AirCam was designed to explore in undeveloped regions. Designed by Phil Lockwood for a National Geographic exploration into the Congo Basin it has the security of two engines, a tandem arrangement so the pilot can fly the aircraft’s photographer (sitting up front) with a nearly unobstructed 270° view, and detachable wings making the AirCam easy to trailer down single track trails. Later, floats were fitted. The cost is in the neighborhood of US$100,000 and performs as well as it looks — as seen in these recent photos.
