They use all sorts of small, maneuverable planes to do that kind of photography. They also have to be fast enough so the larger plane does not stall. I know they used Rutan's Beech Starship to photograph spaceship one

Flying in front of a C-130 is one thing, what about cutting across a 744?

the jal 744 take off picture in the above post is too unrealistic. I know the photographer has commented on its wuthenticity but tell me, is it normal for 744s to climb at that gradiant, seems to be arounf 70 degrees......? the SQ pic next to it looks more realistic........

That JAL744's climb looks normal to me... Just looks steep because of the high zoom used, killing the depth perception... Just look at the runway, the edges are almost parrallel, that means lack of perspective = lack of depth perception = we're less able to distinguish distances between objects in the picture ALONG the line of sight.


When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !

A B-26 that has been converted with large clear sheets of special plastic on the nose and side bulges are used by some groups. For some highly commercial use a Lear Jet from the Clay Lacy company has a periscope camera that when lowered from the bottom of the aircraft has a 360 degree view. I've been on DC9 and B727 with special clearance when Clay's plane and the target (ours) would perform a dual takeoff on the same runway. Our plane would stay nose on towards his tail for some spectacular take offs shots. Then sometimes he would pull to the side and slow while the target would climb parallel and pan past. Utterly spectaular footage. The climb past was necessary if the contractor wanted the audience to the ID/color scheme as from head on identification is impossible to casual audience. Take off from some airports like COS provides great backgrounds.

Less sarcasm and more thought equal better understanding
