I will be going back to Gila Bend, Arizona for two weeks at the beginning of December to do some filming and photography. I will also be building full size remote control Jeep Cherokee target vehicles for the F-16′s to perform practice targeting on. (see my earlier Tumblr post for some photo’s of my trip earlier this year)
I will be building out the electronics, radio control and setting up cameras in the vehicles. In addition, I will be setting up cameras on the desert dirt airfield where we will be driving the vehicles to capture all the action. These cameras will be feeding live video, via a two kilometer WiFi hop back to the hill where our base of operations will be located. The feeds will be recording to a DVR.
I will be posting photo’s and video to my Tumblr blog and Twitter as much as possible, so stay tuned!
In the mean time, check out this short film that I edited for a trip I did back in January in Utah. This is what the cars will be doing in Arizona, except there will not be ground forces shooting at them! Only F-16′s targeting them with lasers and GBU-12′s.
