Went KBDR to KHPN early Monday morning. Metar was calling 5 miles and 200 - then on the approach RVR went 2400. The latter never really sunk into my head, but it dropped very quick with narry a mention of it before we got there.

Just shows ya, 10 minutes is all it takes.

Cool video, neat perspective (tail camera).  Good thing the winds weren't favoring the north since TERPS just increased the ILS 34 CAT I mins to 6000 RVR.

What did you use to mount the GoPro to the tail?  I have one but haven't tried mounting to the exterior of a car or plane yet.
