A SEGENSWORTH company is helping to Free Willy, with one of its remote controlled underwater vehicles.

Saab Seaeye’s Falcon has the iconic killer whale strapped to its back for the filming of Free Willy 4 in South Africa.

Although small and compact, the Falcon was powerful enough to manoeuvre in both swimming pool and the open ocean. The Falcon is owned and operated by Marine Solutions, in Cape Town.
