Friday Night Movies

Yes, movies... as in more than one. We can't resist a triple feature this week because some of it is just that good. And all of them have something to do with our modern age of aviation.

First up is some genuine Top Gun kind of stuff and what happens when you give a bunch of hot shot pilots some cool new GoPro cameras. This is your tax dollars at work, folks!

We'll follow that with footage that is just downright beautiful. Wolf Air is a company that shoots custom air-to-air footage for commercial or movie purposes. They use their own highly modified Wolfe Air LearJet 25 and Vectorvision camera system. Cameras used are the Red Epic and Arriflex Alexa. Pretty easy on the eyes stuff for sure.

And what movie night would be complete without a blooper reel? Well, we have one of those too. And we'll stay on topic: aviation. There's only one thing to be said about this - it's NOT how you load an airplane! This happened at MIA in April 2014. Both employees of the trucking company were fired. Duh.


  1. Triple feature Friday was great, that was your video right? The one your calling the blooper! :-)

  2. Uh... no. Thankfully that "blooper" did *not* happen at any of our airports! We just spent an entire day in Honolulu recently with the FAA talking about the very subject of pedestrians and vehicles in airfield operations areas and how to prevent incidents like this... or worse.
