    In total, we had twelve cameras running during the flight, and generated half a terabyte of footage. Special thanks to camera op Grant who successfully tracked the plane I was in, while pointing his camera backwards, while in a 4g loop.

      Portugal, lots of places in the EU, and the UK.
      So neither Portugal nor the UK are in the EU? (Mind you, January 2020 isn’t finished as of me writing this comment.)

    If a plane is about to land and a commercial fireworks hits it, is it a thing to worry about for the pilot?

    Looks somewhat similar to military aircraft defensive countermeasure flares used to confuse heat seeking missiles. Wonder if that, at least partially, was the inspiration for this airshow act?
