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.  Tracking 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. If you have suggestions of any other videos that should be featured on our website, email us.

Sky Dancer F/A 18 Hornet Swiss Air Force

by on Aug.28, 2010, under Aviation, Aviation News, Video of the day

Our video of the day is a great video of the Swizz Air Force F/A 18 with clips taken from a film by film maker Lionel Charlet. The  film really captures a lot of the beauty of flying a military jet, as well as flying over the alps. The McDonnel Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is an all-weather fighter jet, designed to attack both ground and aerial targets. The Hornet is used by the Swiss Air Forces since January 1996. The F/A-18 is a twin engine, mid-wing, multi-mission tactical aircraft. The Hornet is capable of extremely tight turns over a large range of speeds. The Swiss Air Force purchased 26 C models and eight D models. In October 2008 the Swiss Hornet fleet reached the 50000 flight hour milestone. If you have a video you would like to nominate for the video of the day, send an email to [email protected] with the link.
