Nice. After trying and having limited success I appreciate the difficulty in filming one plane from another...

Any footage from the ground?

Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed it. It was fun making the video, we have tried many ideas to make them better. Here is an attempt as we towed the camera behind the plane.

Thanks guys, we have worked and learned much from trying in-flight video over and over. I can tell you one thing that easily made the biggest difference was to use a wide angle lens on the video camera. WW1 planes work the best because of their low speed, easier to make corrections while flying and avoid getting tangled up together, never let the sillouetes touch. Here is another attempt we made earlier towing the camera behind the plane..
