Is it a topside pass? If so it's about a 45 degree banked flypast along the length of the crowdline displaying the top of the aeroplane for photographers benefit. If you were looking from a Gods eye view the aeroplanes track would describe a curved convex (banana?) shape from say crowd left to crowd right.


Not a great vid but you'll get the point.

A banana pass is an arching 45 degree (sometimes greater) pass.

The video posted above is a banana pass. It's called a banana pass because if you look at the flight path of the airplane from above it looks like a banana.

USAF refers to it as a 'dedication pass'.


From time to time I take a half decent photograph, let me know what you think: http://www.flickr.com/photos/26871905@N06/

GloDark7, I *think* Counterman was just kidding, since that's really for photographers at air shows. I'm not sure it would help very many people watching your video, but it might make the performance more realistic.

Blimey, I've seen loads of them and didn't even know it was called that. You live and learn!

Thanks for the info. If I do another one, I'll put a few in.
The 'photographers' can do print-screens while making shutter noises biggrin

BTW Counterman. Just looked at your Flickr page. Incredible shots.

Banana pass = topside pass (in Europe). Agreed, Counterman your Flickr page shots are fantastic. And you managed to say what I said but in 1 line wink
