A second helicopter flying alongside the airborne screen was packed with three 4K video projectors all working in tandem to maximize the brightness and color saturation of the projected video. And while the pilot of the second chopper was highly experienced (he flies power-line inspectors right the live cables for his day job) the projector system itself was able to track the location of the screen to help ensure it was always on target giving both aircraft were moving independently.


Does this mean the world’s first fly-in movie theater is right around the corner? Obviously not, that’s incredibly dangerous. But the next time you look up in the night sky, it won’t be a full moon you’re looking at, but a commercial for delicious Moon Pies.
