Question How was this filmed? - !!! WARNING Aviation Content !!!

I can see the go-pro on the port wing tip, but how do they get the shots from the starboard?

There's even a part where it looks like there's some formation flying, but you only see one shadow on the ground. He appears to have an unnecessary long probe attached to the starboard wing tip, but you can see the end of it in some of those formation shots, and the kids arms all go funny when he gets out to push

What's going on here?

Says in the comments that it's a 360 degree camera. Clever stuff...! Distortion by the lens makes the wingtip rather ragged...

At 6.07 for example, you can see on the ground a shadow of an extended probe from the wing tip that supports the camera. The cameras own view of this is distorted into a blob like object on the front tip of the starboard wing...
Well that's my considered explanation anyway....

It seems like the camera technology used for viewing the sides of more up market vehicles.


It is a view created by a complex merge algorithm from multiple cameras.

360 degree cameras 'see' enough extra image to be able to calculate out the pole. Kind of auto photoshopping.

It's an Insta 360 X2 camera. It's on the end of a long pole, AI recognises the pole and deletes it in real time...

This the kind of thing gets me - 360 degrees and you can pan whichever way you want. Very clever...

There's a camera on both wings. Could he be getting chased by a drone.

While the 360 degree camera creates the illusion of a close formation, the distortion created by the extreme wide-angle lens is also a giveaway.
