The Wings of Prey
Airshow 2011
(a virtual airshow)

I had the idea for this a while ago after the introduction of the flyby camera. I've been to a few airshows in recent years and thought it would be fun to try and create a virtual airshow using some of the warbirds from Wings of Prey.

I've used a few filters and motion to try to give the video that hand-held-camera, spectator type of feel to it and used some actual airshow audio in parts to add to the illusion.

Please forgive my meagre display of aerobatics. You'll see more rolls than in a bakery!

Check out the P-51's screaming whine as it zooms past the camera! It displays the paintscheme of 'Big Beautiful Doll', sadly lost at Duxford this year. You'll also notice that this aircraft is predominant in the video. It gave me the best angles and the reflections on that chrome surface are very nice!

Special thanks to Fenris and MadMass for the skins.

Crank up the volume!

Dude.. this is pretty insane.. Full screened on a 28 inch monitor looks absolutely real. Think I'm going to go install WOP again.

Great video and skills Glo, and the gfx look awesome especially the Mustang, I need to reinstall this too, maybe will tide me over waiting for COD to mature...

Nice!

The p-51 looks amazing, maybe I should get hat sim! Is the campain any good in it? Cod has been a big let down for me but I would really like a ww2 sim to play around with.

That's nearly enough to sell me on WoP. Nice work.

I really liked the video, but can you re-release it without the music? Those Merlins and Wrights make pretty decent music on their own. wink
