We had the privilege of a location trip to Robin Hood Airport to photograph the last flying Vulcan bomber as it was having aviation fuel offloaded by specialist haulage company Imperial Tankers.
The Vulcan is currently being renovated in the hanger by a team of experts and the aviation fuel was need to be emptied and transported to another display Vulcan bomber.
We used our Bowens travelpaks with Esprit Gemini 500 heads to light the tanker being offloaded.
The Bowens travelpaks are a game changer for location work, giving ease and flexibility in lighting. Often in locations industrial units and hangers they use 3 phase sockets and the travelpaks wive you the ability to light the subject anyway without trailing extensions around the location.
We had a fantastic day shooting this historic aircraft and its great to see that a dedicated team are looking after the last flying example.
