Earlier this year, Lufthansa Cargo received the last of their 5 777 Freighters (D-ALFE) and to mark the special occasion, LH commissioned PilotsEYE.tv to create a documentary that would capture the experience.

PilotsEYE.tv is an awarding winning team that specializes in capturing rare, behind the scenes footage of airlines in a way most of can only imagine.  Their access to all of the ‘good stuff’ is truly impressive and it reflects in their documentaries!

The 100 minute documentary takes us behind the scenes at Boeing, showing D-ALFE in her various stages of final assembly as well as fantastic footage from aboard her delivery flight to Frankfurt and interviews with the pilots.  The video also  gives us a rare front row seat to the delivery meeting where Lufthansa pays for the aircraft.    Amazing how quickly hundreds of millions of dollars can change bank accounts! 🙂

As an additional ‘bonus’ they included some of my personal footage from my ‘secret spotting spot’ capturing D-ALFE being moved from one part of the factory to another in preparation for final assembly.   Don’t believe me?  Check the credits at the end! 🙂

To learn more about the video, including additional footage that is included,  please visit the PilotsEYE.tv webpage for this documentary.
