TV FILMING LOCATION / AVIATION PROP HIRE / Photography destination within N. Ireland
The Ulster Aviation Society' hangars and heritage aircraft collection, located within their aviation compound at Maze Long Kesh in Lisburn, Northern Ireland has been a frequent TV filming location and backdrop for numerous TV series, documentaries and productions and can offer the sort of versatility and flexibility that Film Production Companies are looking for and we have been much in demand as a location for many years.
From BBC documentaries, childrens' sci-fi drama series, to a punk rock music video, the two UAS hangars have a rich, authentic heritage that have provided the creative inspiration and opportunity for amazing visuals, cinematography, texture and atmosphere during each production.
