The clip version (3min) of the Dassault Rafale Solo Display filmed at the Breitling Sion Airshow the 15th and 16th September 2011. Many thanks to Cne Michaël Brocard for the onboard footage recorded during his flights. It's a wonderful solo display performance and with the onboard camera views, this new director's cut video gives a whole new dimension.
The Dassault Rafale is a French twin-engine delta-wing multi-role jet fighter aircraft designed and built by Dassault Aviation. Introduced in 2000, the Rafale is being produced both for land-based use with the French Air Force and for carrier-based operations with the French Navy.
I'm very happy with my new video gear (Sony XDCAM and Sachtler fluid head). It will take a few hours of filming to be completely comfortable with this new material after 6 years with the Sony HVR-Z1 !

A short clip (preview) with flying sequences of the Wingwalkers filmed the Friday at the Breitling Sion Airshow.
The Wingwalkers perform a breathtaking sequence of acrobatic manoeuvres and handstands whilst strapped to the top wings of the team's beautiful Boeing Stearman biplanes.
The team pilots fly the aircraft through a well rehearsed energetic routine of dazzling aerobatics and close formation flypasts as the wingwalkers wave at the crowd. These manoeuvres include, loops, rolls, stall turns and even inverted flight! During all of this, the wingwalkers experience speeds of up to 150 mph and 'G' forces of up to 4G.

I enjoyed a sunday at home to work a few hours on Final Cut Pro and edit a new video with "Flying Sequences" of the jets and fighters displays at the Sion Airshow. Most of the footage was filmed on Thursday from the mountain (South). It was also the first important filming with my new Sony XDCAM videocamera. You'll see different sequences with the Dassault Rafale, the Hawker Hunter, the F/A-18 Hornet, the Saab Gripen and a finale with the L39 Albatros of the Breitling Jet Team.
