From the Vimeo site:
SaberCat1 filming in HD the B17 and the B25 WWII Bombers over and around Arizona's Superstition Mountains and Saguaro Lake. H5 Productions, in conjunction with The Commemorative Air Force filmed these aircraft during the Veteran's Day Celebration on Saturday, November 13th, 2010. The B17 Bomber was flown by pilot Russ Gilmore and the B25 Bomber was flown by pilot Spike McLane. The base for these bombers is Falcon Field located in Mesa, Arizona. SaberCat1 pilot, Mitch Kelldorf. SaberCat1 aerial cinematographer, Mike Murray. Editor, Mike Murray.
This video isn't your average flv from YouTube. It's probably gonna take a while to download, and I highly recommend using the full screen option -click on the four arrows pointing away from a center point between the HD and Vimeo graphics in the toolbar. You'll be glad you did.

If you like airplanes, there's a great documentary called "One Six Right" about the Van Nuys airport.
It was all shot in HD, and mastered in HD, and if you every get to see it, there's scenes that will take your breath away.
Thanks for posting was wonderful!

The site for One Six Right?
You can buy an HD-DVD, but not a Blu-Ray. They originally mastered it for HD-DVD, and as we now know, that format lost.
Last I heard they didn't have the money to redo it in Blu-Ray, which is a shame because I'll bet he could sell a truckload of them!
