Have you ever wondered where those amazing air-to-air shots you see in airline marketing videos and the like come from? Go behind the scenes of Wolfe Air Aviation's marketing work with Air Canada for their new livery on the Boeing 787-9 and one of the coolest photoshoots you'll ever see.
This great behind the scenes video comes from Everyday Reviews. The Learjet 25B used for this shoot should make most photo and video enthusiasts salivate. Replete with RED and Alexa equipment, 360-degree cameras, 50-megapixel Canon 5DS Rs, and more, the follow aircraft is a flying dream for most photographers and aviation enthusiasts (seriously, can I buy tickets for that plane!?). Even cooler is that these flights push the subject aircraft well past any sort of maneuvers you would experience on a normal passenger flight (listen for the audible "bank angle" warning from the EGPWS at 8:22). Believe it or not, the Learjet gets as close as 25 to 50 feet of the wingtips and rudder of the 787, thus the presence of formation-qualified pilots on both planes. It takes amazing skill and vision to pull this off, but the results are truly astounding, and it's well worth watching how it all comes together.
