I'm sure if you went into the FCC database and typed in the callsign, it might return something.

I remember many years ago, Santa Monica PD used a Cessna of some description as a patrol plane. It had a high-zoot exhaust system which ran the length of the fuselage which made it silent except for the sound of it moving through the air. Had a huge spotlight on the side, seems like it was way bigger and brighter than the ones used these days on helis.

That's definitely NOT a "hobby" camera ;)

The camera probably is used to film what happens below.

If anything, all it would show would be the aviation radios, just like any Cessna has.

Anything else would be licensed as "Redlands, City of".

That's not in bad shape for a 1967 airplane.
