Click on image above to watch video

The video above by British Pathe from 1967 is proof that Jason Hawkes isn't the first Londoner to take videos of London by helicopter. Titled 'London Landmarks' it features:

Aerial shots from helicopter flying along the length of River Thames from Tower Bridge to Battersea. Among landmarks seen are Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, Vickers Building, Battersea Fun Fair and Power Station.

Well worth a watch.

Aerial Footage of The City of London At Night By Jason Hawkes

In this 40 second video Jason Hawkes shots The City at night. Pay special attention to the Walkie-Talkie and the Cheese Grater, both of which are still under construction.

Jason is arguably one of the best aerial photographers in the world and has certainly photographed some of the most iconic and exciting aerial shots of London in the past decade. He's documented the enormous changes that have taken place to London in that time.

London From A Whole New Angle – Amazing Video Flyover Video

London aerial 1 from JasonHawkes on Vimeo.

The video above has been making the rounds around the blogosphere recently and I thought I'd share it here too. It was made by Jason Hawkes, who also has some amazing nighttime photos of London on his website.

As you can see there are some really stunning night and day shots of central London, with the Shard in particular being the focus of a good portion of the video. Anyway you should probably stop reading this and watch the video, if you haven't already.
