Istanbul Marathon

Tenthirteen was invited back to Istanbul, one of our favourite cities, for the 3rd time to look after the Istanbul Marathon.
Our two-man crew flew out with 2 Cineflex v.14 cameras and fitted them to two Bell Longranger helicopters, ready for race day.
After a successful test and a bit of rest and recreation in the lovely Istanbul, race day dawned.

The co-ordination of being able to constantly transmit for 4 hours on race day and take into account that each helicopter would have to refuel 3 times during the course of the race took some planning by Tenthirteen’s team, but working closely with the pilots and refueling crew we achieved a 100% transmission for the 3rd year in a row.

It was a great job and good fun too!
