I opened original photo into IrfanView, clicked button Image, next Effect, Effect browser, and select Edge detection or Find Edges and finally saved as pdf format. PDF, because this format giving much less distortion during increase image. I opened pdf file and printed as poster, tile scale 750%.

Step 2: Stencil, Cutting

Neat! Also, amazingly dramatic image: the movement of the helicopter is so well captured. :-)
