How often is it that you really get a solid look at a fighter jet doing its thing? You can catch them in movies, or if you are lucky, you can spy one zooming overhead – but more often than not you’ll just get fleeting glimpses. A Swedish film crew from a company called Blue Sky, however, was able to catch some truly astounding footage of SAAB’s Gripen fighter in action thanks to some amazing equipment.

Using a 6K Red Dragon digital camera combined with a custom stabilizing gyroscope from Gyro-Stabelized Systems and a super pricey Canon CN-E 30-300mm T2.95-3.7 L S EF Mount Cinema lens ($40,000, ladies and gentlemen), they were able to capture this beast of a fighter plane soaring through sky. Filming at speeds exceeding 350 miles per hour and temperatures as low as -4 Fahrenheit, the crew caught the jet pulling tight turns, floating menacingly over a snowy landscape, and even dropping a bunch of flares.
