The Zapruder Film Model

Back on November 22, 1963 Abraham Zapruder filmed the assassination of JFK on his Model 414 PD Bell & Howell Zoomatic Director Series Camera and later sold the footage to Time/Life for a bunch of money (Some say $50K some say $150K) and home movie licensing was born.

This week a Lufthansa Airbus had a wingstrike due to cross winds and the footage is on global News and has become a Viral Video on the Internet. I don't know if the German guys who shot it have seen a dime.
