Super Constellation, The Trailer
Dear friends, dear fans of the Super Constellation, the flight season of the Super Constellation is now ended and the Connie will take a few months of rest during the winter. This involve that our filming is also ended for the season 2013. Even with the excellent cooperation and the professional teamwork of all the crew and the SCFA we haven’t reached all our objectives and we have to extend the filming of this project in 2014. I took the decision to delay the release of the DVD, because I’ve not yet filmed all the sequences I wanted and I want to make a product of quality for all the fans and friends of the Connie, a product of which we will be proud.
The reasons was mainly the poor weather and also some small technical problems with aircrafts (not only the Connie but also other planes and helicopter used for filming air-to-air sequences). Despite this delay, we have already filmed an amount of amazing footage in Basel, Zürich, Dittingen, Mollis, Samedan and in other locations in Switzerland. We have gained a lot of experience who will be very important and who help us to achieve our project in 2014. I’ve edited a 2-min trailer with a selection of the first sequences filmed this year. I invite you to watch and share this first video with your friends.
Finally, I would like to thanks my producer Maurice Tröesch, my flight coordinator and pilot Ernst Frei for their availability and their amount of work behind each filming. Thank you to all the crew members, the mechanics and the hostesses for their friendship and collaboration. And a special thanks to my assistant Franziska who joined this project from the beginning as photographer/video assistant. Her work is really important because we can work simultaneously with several cameras and document all the filming process with beautiful “making of” pictures.
