My experiences living in Cape Town and travelling in Africa

In the Jump Seat – DVD Teaser

In December of last year I teamed up with Hilton Mundy, who founded ShortFinal.TV, to film a behind the scenes documentary called In the Jump Seat during the 2011 Ysterplaat Air Show incorporating Wings and Wheels right here in Cape Town. If you have ever wanted to fly, wondered how aerobatic teams prepare their displays, thought about how many crew it takes to pilot a helicopter or dreamt of breaking the sound barrier in a fighter jet then this DVD is for you!

In this video, filmed over four days at the Wings and Wheels Airshow at Air Force Base Ysterplaat in Cape Town, we follow three pilots from their pre-flight briefings to post-flight analysis. With all-access passes and exclusive interviews, we bring you some never before seen footage of these pilots and their aircraft in action.

The pilots we followed were Roy Sproul of the Silver Falcons:

JP du Preez of 22 Squadron who flies the Oryx:

and Blokkies Joubert who flies the Gripen:

Some of the highlights include close-up footage of the Gripen fighter jet, onboard footage from the Oryx helicopter and the Silver Falcons as well as radio chatter between the control tower and the pilots.
