Get Ready for ‘The Airshow II’ as our Documentary Series Returns

Stay tuned for 30 minutes of airshow action as we release the second episode of our documentary series, ‘The Airshow’!

We continue to chart the challenges facing the airshow scene with untold stories and spectacular footage both from the ground and in the air. With a focus on warbird restoration, we go behind-the-scenes with Navy Wings and Avro Lancaster ‘Just Jane’ during her return-to-flight project. Other features see us join the volunteer teams at the Langkawi International Maritime & Aviation Exhibition and watch pilots battle challenging weather at the Royal International Air Tattoo.

And if that’s not enough for you, our extra features include uncut interviews with The People’s Mosquito and multi-angle cockpit videos from the Patrouille Suisse and Jupiter Aerobatic Team.

50 Minutes of Malaysian Airshow Action

We’re proud to release our latest feature-length programme, featuring the highlights of the Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition 2017.

One of Asia’s longest-running and best-known airshows this year hosted our team as we recorded our newest video, ‘LIMA ’17: the Definitive Documentary’. With 50 minutes of action, we review the highlights of the aerial displays, both at the international airport and at the naval exhibitions. The stars of the show include the TUDM Su-30MKM, the Republic of Korea Air Force Black Eagles and the debut display of the Russian Knights with their new Su-30SM Flanker-Cs.

We also go behind-the-scenes with the volunteer teams, talk to the pilots and share spectacular cockpit footage, not least during the one-off formation flypast of the Black Eagles with their Indonesian counterparts, the Jupiter Aerobatic Team. It all adds up to one of the most fascinating airshows of the year, and we’re thrilled to bring you our pick of the action.

We enjoy unprecidented access to airshows around the world to tell incredible new stories, from the challenges facing the Air Boss at Thunder Over Cedar Creek Lake in Texas to Singapore’s ambitious 50th anniversary flypast and the incredible RoKAF Black Eagles.
