FlyingTV Provide Aerial Shots Of Stricken BA Plane For ITN

In the aftermath of the crash landing at Heathrow airport, FlyingTV were the only aerial provider to keep working into the night providing exclusive live aerial shots for ITN.
Careful negotiations with Air Traffic Control allowed access to the area near the crash three times exclusively. This gave live night shots for ITV London News at 1800, ITV National at 1830, C4 News at 1900 and the newly-relaunched News At Ten at 2200. Each time FlyingTV worked from a spot just over 2 miles from the crash site.
Mike Smith, Managing Director of FlyingTV said: "We used one of our specially-built Newscopters for the task equipped with the latest in technology and firing the output direct to ITN's building in Gray's Inn Road - a distance of over 15 miles."
