Planes Galore

Stumbled on this video on you tube whilst testing 4K on my PC, basically someone is filming various military planes flying down the valley where Star Wars was filmed, in the background you can hear photographers firing photos like machine guns.
Following filming they have edited the video and inserted stills of the panes the photographers have shot every so often which happen to be amazing. On one shot you can see the pilot giving a clear thumbs up. It also includes the F35 lightning plane.

Very impressive wish I had views like that :-)

Re: Planes Galore

Thought it was an excellent approach to a video. Some of those stills demonstrate why mobile phones have their limitations and always will do. It also shows the sheers quality of the lenses, and bodies available. I will have a trawl through the comments section to see if there is any mention of kit used.
You can see with images like that why plane spotters exist :-)

Looks like he's giving the "call me on the phone" sign

Nice to see a Red Arrow there
