A crew from the Yorkshire Television program "Calendar" spent a morning at The Gyrocopter Experience.  Carolyn, the presenter was joined by John, the producer and Richard, the cameraman and they spent over four hours planning and filming a slot for their "Events and Entertainment" section for their thursday evening program.

A mini camera was mounted just inside the windscreen so that Carolyn could present direct to the camera whilst flying.  Firstly the "shoot" was from the runway  filiming the take-offs, some low passes down the runway and some landings.  Then it was time for some air to air shots as cameraman Richard flew with pilot Martin Jones in a second Gyrocopter.  Finally it was time to film all the links and a short interview with Phil Harwood.

Carolyn's Gyrocopter Grin

It was a really brill day and everyone had lots of fun, even John the producer, who normally has both his feet firmly on the ground went for a short flight so that he could feel the experience.  Of course everyone had their Gyrocopter Grin.

The clip was shown on Yorkshire Television (also available on Sky), 28th August (Thursday) at 6pm.  Play video here
