30 Oct Drones Filming Ghost Towns | V-Drone | New Orleans
What better way to celebrate Halloween than to tell you all about ghost towns and drones! There are few things more chilling than an empty death camp or an abandoned city ravaged by radiation. Thanks to the use of drones, we can see parts of the world that we may never get to see in person! V-drone is always exploring the various uses of drones no matter the occasion! Here are some spooky ghost towns that have been captured by drones.
Chernobyl’s Ghost Town
After the Chernobyl power plant explosion in 1986, the town of Pripyat, Ukraine became an empty place. A british filmmaker Danny Cooke flew a drone into the town to show how it looks 30 years later.
The city of Detroit has gone through a major economic or demographic decline in recent decades. The population of the city has fallen from a high of 1,850,000 in 1950 to 677,116 in 2015. Although Detroit has improved drastically in the past couple of years, this drone footage captures the desolation of a once great city in a way that a regular camera cannot.
Nazi Death Camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau
The Third Reich’s largest and most infamous concentration camp was liberated 70 years ago. The massive compound still stands in Southern Poland and more than a million people died at Auschwitz at the hands of Hitler’s regime. Watching this drone footage is bone chilling.
In 2011, a massive tsunami wrecked Tomioka, Japan. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor caused massive levels of radiation to leak. The former residents cannot return to their homes still to this day, but this drone footage was allowed.
