Great video, but what was the camera platform? The areal shot from an air craft make sense but what about the low level shots? Who the hell else was out there and why. I,m guessing the low level shorts are stil from an aircraft using a stabilized telephoto. Gyro stabilized air craft don’t just happen to be flying by so this is a professional set up.

No doubt about it but really, professional or not, I prefer not to be out there in these sea conditions

One shot remind me of a friend who was Commander of a frigate (is it the right term in English?) and told me that you know that you are in severe weather when you get the screws out of the water

This was on the Passagemaker FB page today.

I too wondered who was taking the video and what ship they were on.

They are not all the same ship. I think there are 3 different ships there.

This video has been on Youtube for many years.
Here's a version from 2011

Thanks for the YouTube link. It's kind of irritating to have to log on to Facebook just to watch a video. Especially since I don't have a FB account.

I wasn't even "hip" back in the 60's when that was a thing.

I have decades of IT experience; I might even be able to teach an 8-year-old a thing or two about computer systems and networking.

I also know all about FB and how it works. That's why I choose not to join.

My guess is that those first videos came off the rigs in the north sea. That is why they are not banging around like the boats.
