any way tracker can be used to estimate the motion of a takeoff airplane?

Hi prof doug,

i can only find video on youtube that has some panning of the camera for takeoff of airplanes.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfXPffUEbkA&list=PLE50D167B4B87206A

 

can this video be used to plot the motion of the airplace during takeoff, i know tracker can compensate for an origin offset and a perspective change but i am not sure how to analyse this kind of panning and non-90 degree type of video.

 

any thoughts?

:)
