The charming Heart of Scotland Airshow at Perth was certainly a highlight of the season with it’s small, but very varied flying display over the picturesque Perthshire countryside. The weather for the weekend was mixed to say the least with the Saturday seeing clear sunny weather and Sunday some rather inclement conditions with low cloud and rain.

The production is introduced and narrated by show commentator Andy Pawsey who provides an excellent commentary throughout. On top of the usual high standard of flying display filming there’s a pleasing level of interviews with the pilots and others associated with the airshow.

As ever, Planes TV had a number of cameras on various different displays and there’s some excellent footage from the Anro Anson, Sandy Torrence’s Crazy Flying routine in the Cessna 172, the Swift Team and Rich Pargeter’s Pitts Special. All these displays feature in the bonus features with the interactive in-cockpit functions using the “Angle” button.

A nice touch to the filming are a number of wider shots showing the context of the show bringing a number of display items together – for example there’s a rather lovely shot of the Swift Team displaying in the background with Peter Vacher’s Hurricane in the foreground. Overall this is an excellent production and comes highly recommended.
