Prior to recommending any aircraft participation in a sequence or shot, groundwork is undertaken to first get the director’s vision, as well as understand the era and application of the aircraft. The selection of aircraft has to be credible, for example, featuring a MkIX Spitfire in a scene from 1941 would not work as the MkIX was not operational at that time. Using a Russian cargo aircraft in the USA during the Cold War, again would not present a credible solution. Many parameters are considered before the selection of an aircraft is made and before we get into the final details such as aircraft markings, paint schemes and even performance considerations, to ensure total accuracy on screen.
