A Different Kind of Hawkeye with Skylift

Lutterworth, United Kingdom, July 19, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Skylift certainly had the best view in the house at the first Ashes Test between England and Australia at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff. Skylift, Lavendon Access Services’ specialist vehicle mount division, supplied Sky Sports with a 62 metre truck mounted platform for aerial filming over the five days of play.

The Skylift 62 metre is perfect for television and film work as it comes fitted with a camera cage as standard, along with further optional extras such as bespoke frames, enabling lighting units to be used. The 62 metres (203 feet) of working height makes the Skylift vehicle perfect for all sporting events where aerial shots are common, such as cricket, golf and motor racing, and with continuous rotation and 37 metre outreach, the operator is able to comfortably film from a wide variety of camera positions and angles.

With the first test resulting in a tense draw, Skylift is set to follow England’s fortunes throughout the whole Ashes series. For the second test at Lords, Sky Sports will also be capturing aerial shots from a Skylift 58 metre and a Skylift 50 metre.
