PrivatAir-2-Air B-737

Post by sgkoksijde »

Hello all,

Last year, we had the great honour to be able to do an Air-to-Air photoshoot of one of PrivatAir Boeing 737's. Photoship was the trusted Skyvan which was packed with photographers and videographers. It was an awesome view to see the large Boeing coming-in in the distance, formating on the photoship. The pilots did a great job to fly the aircraft so nice and gentle, showing different positions over the beautiful Zeeland region in the Netherlands.

Here are some of the results of this extraordinary experience:

1. Boeing over Zeeland

2. close-up, nice reflection of the engines

3. Another close-up

4. the background sais it all

5. the photoflight was organised two day before photoflyingdays, which takes place at the Malle-Zoersel airfield in Belgium, off course a final flypast above the airfield could not be missed.

6. bye-bye

I hope you like them, I definitely enjoyed this unique flight.

On our website there is a small report, including a nice video of the flight: www.aviation-photocrew.com

Greetings Tom :wave:

A stunning set of photos there Tom, what a great experience, and an immaculate looking aeroplane.

I remember working on one at Heathrow and we had to take our shoes off, they didn't want dirty engineers traipsing through their spotless airplane on the shag pile :lol:

Great set, well done.

Cheers,
Jeff.

Hello all,

Thanks for the nice comments. They did come resonably close for such a large aircraft, but always ensuring a safe distance. It sometimes looks closer then it is, as the aircraft is huge and we have long lenses :-)

Greetings Tom

Very nice set, and quite an interesting subject for an air-to-air shoot! My pick is the first one.
