Flying TV captures the British Grand Prix and Spitfire!
Last month, our client Flying TV prepared 2019 British Grand Prix viewers with incredible footage of classic airmanship. Hosted by Steve Jones with special guests David Coulthard and Mark Webber, legends and former F1 racers, the opening scene of the July 14 race brings speed to the skies alongside the Spitfire.
From the vantage point of a Robinson R44, Flying TV’s Aerial DOP Monica Wyer used a GSS Cinema Pro, a full-size Sony HDC-P50 4K, and Canon 45x9.7 4K UHD Lens mounted on a GSS R44 Single Pole. In coordination with Whisper Films, the footage captures mind-blowing aerial maneuvers highlighted by Britain’s lush, green backdrop around Silverstone Circuit, a former WWII airbase in Northamptonshire.
First held in 1926, the British Grand Prix features 52 laps, and a phenomenal win by now six-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton capped this year’s race. The 34-year-old British racer completed his latest win at 1:21:08.452. Congrats, Lewis! He continues to build his legacy with more World Championship titles and more race victories than any other British F1 driver.
