What role did GB Helicopters play in the making?

Our operational task throughout the series was to provide air-to-air footage, aerial overviews as well as tracking emergency response vehicles on major incidents.

Holding a long-term low-level flying permission that allows us to achieve dynamic aerial footage in Ultra High Definition throughout the UK. Combined with one of our ultra high definition camera systems we were able to fly in convoy with a number of vehicles and aircraft to achieve the shots required by production.

What camera system and aircraft was used?

All aerial filming was captured on the state-of-the-art GSS C516 nose mounted camera system, which was configured with our Red Epic Dragon, and 50-1000 Canon lens. The system was rigged to one of our AS355 twin-engine aircraft.
