This is Flight is one of the sole websites to produce free, high-quality airshow documentaries and video reviews for our viewers. Below you can find details of some of our most popular programmes. More can be found on our YouTube channel.
Video reports (2014-present)
Our airshow video reports allow our viewers to relive the highlights of some of the world’s greatest airshows, often featuring interviews and cockpit footage. Among our most recent examples are LIMA ’17: the Definitive Documentary, charting the 2017 Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition in Malaysia, and Air Tattoo 2018: Best of the Week, which brings you the highlights of the arrivals, rehearsals and flying displays at the official international celebration of the Royal Air Force’s centenary.
The Airshow (2016-17)
The Airshow was a documentary series drawing upon the best of our footage throughout the year to tell the story of the global airshow industry following the tragic events of August 2015. Featuring privileged access, stunning cockpit video which puts you on board with the pilots and in-depth interviews, The Airshow takes you into the heart of the action, to show the immense amount of time, work and effort required to make airshows happen. Both episodes can be found below.
Sparks will Fly (2019)
Our feature documentary for 2019 will follow the aerobatic teams pioneering the concept of night-time pyrotechnic air displays around the world. We will go behind closed doors in the dead of winter to see the latest innovations unfold, before following Aerosparx and GliderFX to China, Latvia, Portugal and beyond during their 2018 and 2019 show seasons. This project is due for release in December 2018.
