How They Take Mid-Flight Photos

I know I’ve always wondered and thought some of you might have, too! This is a post made by UPS Airlines on Instagram of an air to air photo shoot. I also thought it was a pretty cool photo!

I bet they take their senior pilots and have them practice it in a flight simulator before doing it.

Looks fun!

Air Canada uses a Learjet with a camera attached to the bottom of the plane to record or snap photos.

Photoshop??

Aircraft manufacturers always have a small jet flying next to the “focus” aircraft, to tape a video, or take pictures. Sometimes choppers.
Look carefully in these videos.
