Microlight pilot Christian Moullec went to extraordinary lengths in order to film birds in flight from up close overflying the city of London. He hand-reared a brood of Barnacle Geese who now see him as their mother and follow him in flight. This is the backstage part of the BBC documentary. Really incredible!
This video is uploaded in 1080 full HD... it's a test video, but includes all brand new footage including 2 Boeing 747-8's at London Stansted in the form of G-GSSF and G-GSSD along with Pegasus and Thomson Airways Boeing 737s, and ATR72-201 of Aurigny - always looking so smart in that livery - and a few others in the titles. As always I am extremely grateful for you taking the time to view.
Originally designed as a land-based, long-range, anti-submarine warfare (ASW) patrol aircraft, the P-3C's mission has evolved in the late 1990s and early 21st century to include surveillance of the battlespace, either at sea or over land. Its long range and long loiter time have proved invaluable assets during Operation Iraqi Freedom as it can view the battlespace and instantaneously provide that information to ground troops , especially U.S. Marines. The P-3C has advanced submarine detection sensors such as directional frequency and ranging (DIFAR) sonobuoys and magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) equipment. The avionics system is integrated by a general purpose digital computer that supports all of the tactical displays, monitors and automatically launches ordnance and provides flight information to the pilots. In addition, the system coordinates navigation information and accepts sensor data inputs for tactical display and storage. The P-3C can carry a mixed payload of weapons internally and on wing pylons.
