The Aviation PhotoCrew is a small team
of enthusiastic photographers and 1 videographer with the same passion
for aviation. In the past 20 years we have had the opportunity to do a
lot of Air-to-Air photowork all around the world, which can be found in
the galleries on our website.
We are the only team in the world offering large scale aerial photomissions
to other photographers around the globe!! If you like to fly with us,

with us!’ ‘Newsletter’
Shall we start about the weather….? Ooh the absolute
horror RIAT this year had to endure, and it was the same for the
photoflights. We managed to fly between showers, for real!! Navigating
through the downpour was a new challenge for us, but it was all
done in a very safe way. Of course the weather did prevent us from
flying the full planning, as many aircraft had a rescheduled arrival
time, or had to use the fuel for the photo join-up as additional
However, long story short, is that despite all these challenges
we had another epic edition of RIAT photoflights!! No other project
in the entire world will offer so much military variety, and we
were truly blessed again to welcome so many friends behind the Skyvan
> 12-02-2024: US Airpower
We have had friends at Lakenheath airbase for a
long time, resulting in many join-ups with USAF assets in previous
years. For this season, in great corporation with the Liberty Wing,
we organized a 1-day project that was all about American airpower.
Our host 'Evil' had made it sure that the Skyvan photoship could
land and operate out of Lakenheath itself, a true priviledge!
> 14-01-2024: UK Warbirds
In the month of July we celebrate one of our fine
traditions. The week before we start with the aerial photomissions
for the world-famous RIAT airshow, we focus on the most precious
aircraft of all….warbirds. In just one weekend, we flew with 16
incredible aircraft and it’s always a fantastic thrill!! The stars
need to align in a pretty nice way to make it all happen as very
often there is just, well 1 of each. The slightest mechanical issue
or questionable weather will see a photomission cancelled. The other
challenge is pilot availability, as only a rather small selected
group of aviators are qualified to fly the genuine warbirds.
> 18-12-2023: Finnish Airshow
The Finnish Air Force had chosen the city of Turku
to host the airshow, and being a coastal place it could only mean
our ‘photo join-up area’ would bring the Skyvan over
an amazing scenery with a thousand lakes. And the weather forecast
was the best scenario you could wish for as well, with only a few
fluffy white clouds missing but full sunshine all day.
As always, the aerial photomissions were fully supported by the
Finnish Air Force providing us with an incredible line-up of assets.
> 29-11-2023: Airpower Alaska
In June we planned to head out to Anchorage to fly
a few days with our Austrian friend Dietmar Schreiber, as he is
definately the ‘master of Alaska’ when it comes to chasing
all that fantastic old metal that is still flying there.And it certainly
was a great roadtrip with a lot of interesting stops to indulge
ourselves into the floatplanes and Beavers…Alaska style.
However, this report is about our unexpected but brilliant encounter
with the jetfighter power of Eielson airbase. It’s great to
have friends in aviation all around the world.
> 02-06-2023: BAF Dream
Our crewmember Geert had the chance to hop on the
Belgian Air Force A400M for an aerial photoshoot with the F-16 demo
jet, 'Dream Viper'. Piloted by 'Vrieske', they took the formation
over the Ardennes and coastline to have some nice backdrops. Of
course there are a few ingredients present if you talk about an
F-16 join-up when it's in the hands of a pilot with 5000+ flight
hours on the jet…very dynamic maneuvers, smoke and flares! The grand
finale will always come with the famous inverted pose!
> 16-04-2023: USA Project
In March 2023,we were super excited to fly out to
Arizona for two days of testflights with Skydive Arizona providing
the Skyvan photoship. Main purpose is not to have a ton of aircraft
joining up on us, but to see how procedures work and if they are
comparable to our concept in Europe. We had great support in advance
from the FAA, and would focus on two days of flying.
