Always a bit of a worry when someone says he's fixing his plane before you go up
I used to do this sort of stuff in the 70's with a Wild Ariel camera. I had a hatch cut in the side of the crate that I could open and poke the camera out, then I fixed a strap to the camera and hung it on a nail over the hatch. It can get a bit bumpy at low altitudes and you need to know the camera will be OK if you drop it (which you probably will!).
If it's a light aircraft like a Cessna it'll probably have a drop down window. Secure your camera so that it's hanging in the open window and snap away. It'll be a bit draughty and the driver will moan like hell, but that's the price we pay for our art!
Good luck and take LOTS of pix
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
