Great air-to-air footage of F-16’s at play

Courtesy of The Aviationist, we find this video clip of two F-16 fighters in the skies over Arizona.

The video below was filmed by Swedish aerial specialist, Peter Degerfeldt at Blue Sky Aerial, from a Sabreliner 65, a “High Veocity Aerial Platform” capable to film up to 45,000 feet and Mach 0.82 with a GSS Cinema Pro.

The GSS is a camera system for high velocity that can shoot stabilized footage in 5 axis up to 400 knots. The wireless system allows remote control of any camera and lens suspended in the Gyro and transmission of the HD picture back to the cabin where it is recorded in Quicktime on a SSD drive and displayed on a monitor.

The result is pretty stunning: steady, rock solid images no matter the speed, banking and Gs pulled by the filmed aircraft.

There’s more at the link.

That’s some of the sharpest air-to-air footage I’ve ever seen.  I’ll be on the lookout for more from Blue Sky Aerial.  They have a number of videos on their Vimeo channel that you might also enjoy.
