Video [vintage-and-warbirds] THE FLYING LESSON

The Flying Lesson is an ambitious action/drama short film involving air-to-air stunt sequences with a vintage WWII Tiger Moth bi-plane.
After the recent death of her grandfather, Phoebe Sanderson (Jessica Blake) takes a flying lesson in the exact plane her grandfather flew in WWII, a recently restored Tiger Moth. With a sense of trepidation, she takes flight with a promise to keep. Only a chauvinistic flying instructor (Richard J. Fletcher) with a secret stands in her way...

THE FLYING LESSON | A Short Film from Phil Hawkins - Director on Vimeo.
The Flying Lesson is an ambitious action/drama short film involving air-to-air stunt sequences with a vintage WWII Tiger Moth bi-plane.

After the recent death of her grandfather, Phoebe Sanderson (Jessica Blake) takes a flying lesson in the exact plane her grandfather flew in WWII, a recently restored Tiger Moth. With a sense of trepidation, she takes flight with a promise to keep. Only a chauvinistic flying instructor (Richard J. Fletcher) with a secret stands in her way...

The film was shot over 5 days mainly on a Canon C300 with some aerial unit footage shot on the Red and even a 5D Mark II. I became involved when Adrian Alexander (owner and stunt pilot of "Huffy The Tiger Moth") got in touch with a script from a new writer (Ian Bishop) and had already teamed up with James Oldham, an aspiring director of photography. After a few rewrites of the script to move it more into a story based short and away from previous drafts which were more stunt based, I came onboard as director and produced the short through my company The Philm Company in association with Frantic Film and Motley Flying Productions.

The film was edited by Alex Macleod using Adobe Premiere which, because of our mixed camera formats, worked brilliantly. The original score was composed by Richard Bodgers including our own arrangement of classical piece "In The Hall Of The Mountain King" which was an ambitious feat in itself!

We really wanted to create a short film that would 'raise the bar' of what is possible on a low budget with a team of talented, ambitious, like-minded folks. I'd never shot with aeroplanes or stunts before so I loved the challenge and also really pushed to try and create an cinematic short film. I must point out that this short has received no external/public funding and was shot on a very limited budget. It may not look it, but I guess that's the point! My heartfelt thanks to the talented cast, crew, pilots and facilities companies who made this short possible. We really couldn't have made it without you all. There are too many people to thank here but every single person in the credits (please watch!) were integral to creating this film. You can see a behind the scenes video here:

Please do share so we can show out film to as many people as possible and post your comments below.

We hope that you enjoy it. | |

MAM to sell off collection

In mid-June, a spokesman for The Military Aviation Museum (MAM) at Virginia Beach told Aeroplane that the 70+ First and Second World War aircraft in its collection are up for sale, and the museum will shut up shop later this year. This shock development came just a month after the MAM's de Havilland Mosquito FB.26, KA114, made its American debut at the MAM's Warbirds Over the Beach show, following its arrival from New Zealand (see Aeroplane, December 2012).
Sadly, inclement weather over the May 17-18 weekend led to a severely truncated flying programme at the Warbirds Over the Beach show, but the Mosquito flew from the MAM's grass strip on May 16 in front of enthusiasts from all over the world, who had travelled to Virginia for this very special occasion.

La PATROUILLE DE FRANCE comme vous ne l'avez jamais vue. Un film de Eric MAGNAN, produit par François-Olivier ROBIN & Eric MAGNAN - AIRBORNE FILMS

« PATROUILLE DE FRANCE », c’est l’histoire d’une passion et d’une fidélité. Le réalisateur, pilote et esthète Eric Magnan à qui l’on doit notamment les très remarquées séquences aériennes du long-métrage Les Chevaliers du Ciel, a déjà filmé ce corps d’élite et les pilotes ont trouvé tout naturel qu’il réalise le film événement à l’occasion du 60ème anniversaire de la Patrouille de France.

Le Soir : L’aéroport de Bruxelles s’entoure d’un nouveau mur de sécurité

L’aéroport de Bruxelles a entrepris de construire un mur de près de trois mètres de haut et long de plusieurs centaines de mètres sur son périmètre sud, sans doute à la suite du spectaculaire vol de diamants commis le 18 février dernier, a constaté l’agence BELGA.

Le Soir : Le "Connector", le prochain nouveau bâtiment de Brussels Airport

Le bâtiment, d'une longueur de 200 mètres et d'une superficie totale de 32.850 m², sera utilisé par tous les passagers partant de Brussels Airport. Il fera la jonction entre le hall de départ et la jetée A.

Space : Herinnering 50 jaar eerste vrouw in de ruimte

Forwarded message From: Dirk De Quick 

sinds kort is ook geweten dat zij als eerste een  "mission patch" had.
hiervan waren er slechts 3 gemaakt die op haar trainingsuniformen zaten en 1 op haar training die ze onder haar ruimtepak droeg.
deze is nog te zien op haar trainingspak dat hangt in het muzeum van het Gagarin Trainingcentrum.
ter gelegenheid van de 50ste verjaardag van haar vlucht kreeg een Nederlandse kunstenaar de patch van naderbij te bekijken en op te meten.
deze werden nu gereproduceerd door
25 op ware grootte (die zijn intussen uitverkocht) en daarna ook op 1/2 grootte.

Fifty years ago, first woman to fly in space wore world's first mission patch
Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, who 50 years ago this Sunday (June 16) launched aboard the Soviet Union's Vostok 6 mission, set a world record by becoming the first woman in space. But her gender wasn't the only contribution that Tereshkova made to the cultural history of space exploration — she was also the first to wear a mission emblem on her spacesuit, although it was hidden from view.
Now half a century later, a Dutch artist is set to bring that patch into the light — and to the public — by producing replicas.

Thx Paul,

De Belgische en Vlaamse lucht- en ruimtevaartindustrie heeft hoegenaamd geen last van de crisis. Elk jaar groeit de sector met 5 %. Dat komt omdat onze bedrijven, als een van de weinigen, heel gespecialiseerde hoogtechnologische precisieonderdelen kunnen maken. Op de luchtvaartbeurs van Parijs in Le Bourget zijn wij de op vijf na grootste.

Brussels Airlines starts flights to Washington today 18 June 2013

Starting today 18 June 2013, Brussels Airlines operates five flights per week between Brussels Airport and Washington Dulles. The new scheduled service aims at passengers travelling to the American capital as well as passengers who connect to other destinations in the United States via Washington.

After an absence of 12 years, a Belgian passenger aircraft will land in Washington Dulles Airport today with Brussels Airlines flight SN515. And that’s not the only novelty: SN515 is the first and only flight with a late afternoon departure from Brussels Airport to the United States. The inaugural flight will be sent off festively at Brussels Airport and awaits a warm welcome in the American capital.
With this new scheduled service Brussels Airlines doesn’t only connect the European and American capitals with each other: Brussels Airport en Washington Dulles are two important hubs of the Star Alliance network and this new service creates dozens of new connection possibilities. The flight schedule allows for passengers to connect to many other destinations in the US with other Star Alliance partners. A lot of passengers combine the Washington flight with a connection to the West Coast or big cities in the US. The first flight to Washington has passengers on board who travel onwards to San Francisco, Mississippi, Chicago, Indianapolis and Kansas City. The first flight departing from Washington welcomes passengers that transfer through Brussels Airport to other Brussels Airlines destinations like Oslo, Kinshasa, Abidjan, Copenhagen and Douala.
This summer season Brussels Airlines flies 5 times per week to Washington D.C. All flights are operated with Airbus A330-200 or A330-300 aircraft that have recently been refurbished with comfortable Business- and Economy Class cabins. 
Long haul growth
The new Washington D.C. route is launched exactly one year after the successful start of the New York JFK route, Brussels Airlines’ first trans-Atlantic route. Washington is the second East Coast destination for Brussel Airlines. The first commercial results are satisfying.

    Brussels Airlines starts scheduled service to Alicante

    Starting 26 October Brussels Airlines will operate flights to Alicante. The entry port to the popular Costa Blanca with its many holiday resorts such as Benidorm, Calpe, Denia and Torrevieja will be connected to Brussels Airport on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

    The Spanish Costa Blanca is a much loved holiday destination all year round, thanks to its fantastic climate, the extensive tourist infrastructure and the stunning coastline. The Belgians are, after the British and the Dutch, the third largest group of visitors. They stay in hotels or stay in one of the many apartments and holiday homes in Belgian possession.

    “With the launch of Alicante we can now offer Brussels Airlines passengers a comfortable travel option to the two most important holiday regions on the Spanish mainland: The Costa Blanca via Alicante and the Costa Del Sol/Andalusia via Malaga”, says Brussels airlines CCO Lars Redeligx. “With Alicante, a top destination in the Belgian travel market, we extend our flight offer to sun destinations even more. Vacationers who wish to travel to the South, have a wide array of choice at Brussels Airlines thanks to our flight offer to Palermo, Catania, Lamezia Terme, Venice, Naples, Florence, Lisbon, Malaga, Barcelona, Tel Aviv, Marrakech, Agadir, Nice, Marseille, and now also Alicante.”
    The flights will depart every Wednesday and Saturday, with an early afternoon departure from Brussels Airport and a late afternoon departure from Alicante airport. This schedule allows good connectivity with other European destinations in the Brussels Airlines network.
