good eye! it's been ages since i've seen a corvette! i knew the tip tanks were a long shot, buy hey, i've seen some obscure planes w/ tip tanks, so i figured i would take a guess. thinking back, the horizontal stab is lower on the tail w/ the sabreliner.

Quoting Sk902hvy (Reply 8): Interesting that the plane in the above photos is not owned by Airbus, but by Aero Vision. Is Aero Vision an Airbus subsidiary? Why wouldn't Airbus use its own Corvettes?
Maybe the Aero Vision plane was specially equipped with recording cameras to monitor the flight of the A380? The Corvette owned by Airbus is probably still in its executive configuration, so it's probably used to transport Airbus officials around Europe.

That aircraft is dedicated to air shots and case-plane duties, and equipped accordingly.
All the AI official aerial shots were from that airplane.
Considering the stability of the AI videoshots,there is one mean formation pilot on board.
