VANCOUVER — Was it a bird? Was it a plane? Yes, not just one plane but two, and they were shooting new footage for Air Canada.
Back in May, Vancouverites reported seeing a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft flying unusually low over English Bay, with another smaller plane following closely behind. Both aircraft were reportedly flying at just 2,800 feet.
It turns out the smaller plane was filming footage of Air Canada’s new aircraft as it flew above local landmarks like BC Place Stadium and the Vancouver Convention Centre.
A new video that was posted on Air Canada’s YouTube channel includes a fascinating behind-the-scenes look into how the footage was shot. Although the brand new Boeing is undoubtedly the main star, the video also beautifully captures Vancouver in all its glory.
Air Canada has 61 firm orders for Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, which are scheduled for delivery by 2021. By the end of 2018, 18 of these will enter its fleet, reports Daily Hive.
