                  The Story Behind the Photo!

                  I don’t think there are many who would doubt just how ‘incredible’ Brian Losito’s shot (above) of Air Canada’s 787 Dreamliner is. So incredible in fact, that I just had to ask him how he did it.

                  And here is his reply:

                  “I shot this image using a remotely operated camera fitted inside a special pod which was carried beneath the wing of a Learjet (N49WA). Using a jet allows us to match the speed of the subject aircraft, in this case an Air Canada 787.

                  As the camera was rearward facing, it was a matter of flying ahead of the 787 and then coordinating with the pilots in order to position both aircraft in such a way so as to achieve the angles I wanted. The pilots did a great job.

                  Glad you like the photo!”

                  Another big thank you to Brain for taking the time to explain the story behind this shoot and for these additional, wonderful photos!
