Red Tails – Aerial Combat FX created by ILM, Pixomondo, Radical 3D, Halon Entertainment, Rising Sun Pictures.
When I was a kid I wanted to be a commercial airplane pilot, and I spent many days observing planes land and take off, had my share of airplane models, and later in life became attracted even to scifi spaceships like the Viper from Battlestar Galactica. Another very long term goal is for me to virtual fly in some 3D plane / spaceship (first have to finish the model though 😉 )
Red Tails was great in many levels but in term of FX, I really enjoyed the flying scenes… Here is a great FX clip, Enjoy!
