A Great Aviation Video

by on Aug.29, 2010, under Aviation, Aviation News, Video of the day

The video of the day is a wonderful and very relaxing video of the Mirage 2000. It has some of the greatest aerial camera work I have ever seen and is one of my favorites. The footage is from the filming of Les Chevaliers du Ciel (English title “Sky Fighters”) which was filmed in co-operation with the French Air Force. This film used real footage. The filming of these flight sequences seen in the movie were mainly done from the air, as opposed to Top Gun where most of the filming was done from the ground. To achieve this, one of the Mirage’s external fuel tanks was modified to fit a camera. ┬áTracking shots were done from a hired US Lear Jet. Additionally, jet aircraft are not allowed to fly over Paris. As a result of this, all the Paris filming had to be done on the actual Bastille Day (14 July) for which the filming crew got special permission.Watch it and give your feedback.
