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.
