A first preview with RAW sequences filmed in Sion at the Breitling Airshow the 15th and 16th September 2011. It was the first time I used my new Sony XDCAM EX videocamera in an airshow (except the speed pass sequence of the F/A-18 in Môtiers two weeks ago).

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 !

The display of the Rafale was a beautiful surprise. Very dynamic. The weather conditions in Sion were not good (against the light or cloudy).

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.
