Flying with the Classic Formation – La Ferté-Alais 2015

This film showcases the Classic Formation flying at the famous French airshow in La Ferté-Alais in 2015, which is located 50km south of Paris.

Jan Locher, the Swiss filmmaker and composer, captures many terrestrial and aerial sequences and puts the very finest in this film. The music was exclusively composed and hand-tailored during the making of the film.
