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.

Over London Dusk & Night – Another Amazing Jason Hawkes Video

Over London Dusk & Night is another amazing video from the aptly named Jason Hawkes. I’ve previously featured his video ariel 1 on the site before. He’s probably the best aerial photographers/videographers in London today. Some of the shots he gets are absolutely breathtaking.

In this video he looks at London at dusk and at night. Some of the locations/landmarks featured include the Shard, St. Paul’s, Canary Wharf, the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Piccadilly and Oxford circuses and many more. I love seeing London from the air and hope you do too.
