So its normally all going on in airline loos but what shocking places to try and shoot. We think we’ve not just made it possible but fairly easy. We have 3 different styles of loo; two economy and one from a First Class Cabin. Of the two economy options one is a complete toilet section, but oversized by about 20% just to give a little more wiggle room. The door opens wide, the mirror removes four camera as do sections of the rear wall. The ceiling lifts off for lighting. The whole cubicle is on a sturdy base meaning it can be floated away from the rest of the set, or even easily removed to shoot another day when you don’t have loads of SA’s standing around on the payroll.
The second economy style option is actually made up of 3 separate identical loos. Each is lit the same and has the same floating ceiling for lighting. One is complete (to shoot your hero going in), one has the rear wall removed (to shoot the reverse) and the last has the mirror removed (for hero face on). Again each loo easily floats away from the set for ease of camera access or to simply take away to another location.
Shoot Aviation are in the Ops Room at White Waltham Aerodrome, just 25 miles west of London, UK

New fleet addition! A rather spectacular 1970’s HS125 exec jet cockpit. On a trailer for easy transport, cockpit windows float for camera as do rear sections. Call for details! #ukfilm #hs125 #aircraftfilming #avgeek #avgeeks https://t.co/ZB8rl8SaBW4th December 2018

Had a weekend test fitting for the Bf108. We’re going to steal an idea from a German example. Original instruments but with a modern stack of EFIS and radios hidden in the glove boxes. Found an original set of Messerschmitt lap straps for refurb! #avgeek #avgeeks #bf108 #me108 https://t.co/6cFqNnbmf719th November 2018

Filming on/in/around Airliners. The most common request we receive is that of a production wishing to film inside an airliner. Be that…
