Helicopters and projectors create giant screen in the sky for MTV

The largest ever aerial projection screen was recently created using two helicopters, three 4K projectors and a 250ft (76m) wide banner. The stunt was staged by aerial marketing specialist, Branding By Air, and Remarkable Media for MTV’s VMA 2016 performance by Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj on August 28 in New York.

The feat earned a Guinness World Record for Branding By Air and MTV for the Largest Aerial Projection Screen in the History of Advertising.

One helicopter towed the enormous banner above New York’s Hudson river while the other, loaded with three stacked projectors, flew alongside. 

According to its creators, the stunt was two years in the making including extensive wind tunnel testing.
