Art Scholl was a highly regarded aerial cinematographer, stunt pilot, and aerobatic champion. Using this variety of cameras, Scholl shot aerial scenes for the 1970s television series Baa Baa Black Sheep and such movies as Capricorn I, The Great Waldo Pepper, Top Gun, and the IMAX film Flyers.
Scholl's de Havilland DHC-1A Chipmunk is on display in the Udvar-Hazy Center, and master copies of several of his films reside in the Museum's motion picture collection. The cameras are of 1940s to 1960s vintage. Many of these models were used by both U.S. and international military and commercial aerial photographers.
