A novel and exciting adventure following a dedicated and determined group of pilots as they worked to push the boundary of what their aircraft were designed to do. Taking them from the wet and often unpredictable weather patterns of the United Kingdom across Europe in a daring ferry flight down through Greece and across to Crete. Capturing the imagination with an all or nothing attempt on a world record from the location where myth suggests Icarus flew too close to the sun. Working closely with the adventurers, Moonshine consulted to capture extreme angles from different positions on each of the two aircraft, following the action from the pace car driven by an international performance driving expert.
