Yannick Barthe

Airshow pilots can’t complain. When your job is to fly loops in the sky and do repeated barrel rolls at such high speeds, what more could you ask for? But what’s even cooler than being a jet pilot? Filming them. Yannick Barthe is one lucky photographer in that he gets to see all of the incredible stunts without going through the whole trouble of passing out under so many pounds of gravity.

This freelance cameraman, editor and filmmaker follows everyone in the airshow business and records the amazing stunts performed by the pilots from a variety of angles. The video below is one of his many works and features an F/A-18 Hornet flying a Solo Display at the Breitling Sion Airshow just a few months ago. The filming, camerawork and editing were all done by him so get ready and let “Barthe” take your “Breath” away.
