We can, and indeed have, sourced and worked with most aircraft types; from World War 1 fighters at the very dawn of aviation to the latest modern airliners. Private, civilian or military we’ve very likely been there before.

We can help you select an aircraft that’s correct for both period and role and if necessary paint it to your taste in our washable paint. If required we can match the exterior to one of our interior stage sets, making a slick and seamless transition from your exterior to interior shots.

To compliment the choice of aircraft we’ll source pilots and crew with the correct licenses and experience, keeping the Production both legal and safe whilst providing the most amazing aerial content.

Below are some examples of aircraft we’ve managed before. It’s far from an exhaustive list of all we’ve done but rather just some landmark “types” to help get the thought process going! Click on each to see some behind the scenes of when we’re shot them before.

If you’d like to have even the most informal chat about what you might need then we’re super enthusiastic. Just pick up the phone, we’d love to hear from you!

3/3 Although they did not hit the German aircraft, its pilot appears to have panicked and landed without his undercarriage locked down. In the crash landing the fuselage was badly damaged and the pilot severely injured. The other occupant received only slight injuries.' https://t.co/bzAJQFMqWj

2/3 Crossing the coast they fired very cartridges which they hoped would indicate that they had no hostile intentions.They continued their flight to RNAS Ford where they were chased by a Mosquito and two or three Hawker Typhoons. The RAF aircraft opened fire. https://t.co/07s2YqbKl7

1/3 - Bf108 “F8-CA” of Stab/KG40. Two members of the Luftwaffe decided to desert and stole this aircraft at Châteaudun, taking off at 06.00 on 11 September, 1943, to fly to England. Flying at 3,000 ft, they headed for Selsey Bill, the nearest point on the English coast. https://t.co/qcKkmm84eR

Getting ready for codes and nose art on the Bf108. Anyone recognise it? Quite a story.. #bf108 #me108 #avgeeks https://t.co/U5GvTrF7Kv

OK, so lets bust the COVID quiet by running up our new B17 engine. Obviously VFR only, and despite the unusual undercarriage arrangement I guess it still qualifies as a taildragger. What could go wrong... #b17 #avgeeks https://t.co/8HkPWuYaYD
