Beatiful Mirage video

Man, this video just gets made my day. It's long, about 19 minutes, but filled with simply beautiful shots of french jets flying around in the clouds. Some of the scenes are simply amazing and almost look CG generated. I especially like the section starting 7 minutes in, where they fly through and around some huge cumuli formations. Epic.

It turns out the footage is from a french movie, Les Chevalier du Ciel (The Knights of the sky). It was released in 2005 and was described as a rival to movies such as Top Gun. The story is kinda wierd, but the aerial photography is outstanding and apparently there is no VFX at all.
