Strap in for a hell of a ride! Flights on vintage cold war jets are hard to come by, and fortune came our way at the 2013 Abbotsford Airshow, when we had the exclusive opportunity to meet up with Greg Colyer, and his beautifully restored CT-33 Silver Star jet trainer.
The Canadair CT-33 is a built in Canada, license built Lockheed T-33 military jet trainer. In the 1950s air forces all over the world used the sturdy T-33 to train military jet pilots, and of course the aircraft was hugely popular in the US and Canada.
Sacramento based Greg Colyer of AceMakerAirshows.com operates this beautiful CT-33 on the airship circuit, and in 2013 the aircraft made its first ever visit to the Abbotsford Airshow, where in our opinion, it put on the most impressive flying display of the year.
We placed two cameras on the flight deck, as well as a camera under the belly of the aircraft to film Greg’s flying display giving multiple perspectives of the aerobatic flight display. This DVD presents the complete flight from each of the three cameras, with the original sound capture from each of the cameras.
We also filmed the flying display from chalks to chalks from the ground as well, so this DVD provides the viewer with the complete flying performance of this amazing vintage jet trainer. Viewers might want to be comfortably seated while watching as the upside down horizons and Abbotsford countryside that seems to whizz by left and right, all makes for one of the most unique cockpit DVDs you’ve ever seen. It is nothing like the commercial aircraft cockpit DVDs that follow the same, tedious routines over and over again.
