Narrows Bridge Fire


Check out this excellent 4k drone video of the twin-span Tacoma Narrows Bridge near Seattle, Washington, compliments of cward360.  The older of the two bridges over the Puget Sound strait was completed in 1950, replacing the infamous Galloping Gertie bridge which collapsed within six months of opening in 1940.  Its main span of 853 meters (about 2.8k ft.) made it the world's third-longest suspension bridge when it opened.  The newer span opened in 2007 and now handles eastbound traffic.

Seattle, Washington is the principal city of the USA's Pacific Northwest, and it is one of the 15 largest metro areas in the United States.  It is a highly cosmopolitan city of giant gleaming skyscrapers that is the center of the worldwide jet airplane industry, and yet the giant Mount Rainier visible in the distant background puts it all in perspective.  In this short but impressive video, contributor David Yip gives us an aerial tour of the Seattle waterfront on Puget Sound.

Seattle, Washington


AirVuz own tylerjmason used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 to create this fantastic aerial video of downtown Seattle, Washington.  The video alternates between two of the best perspectives of the city: (1) towards the Space Needle (which lies just north of downtown) facing northeast, with Union Lake in the background; and (2) from a vantage point north of the center city looking south towards the Space Needle, with the skyline of the core downtown area behind it and Puget sound to the right (west).

Seattle, Washington, USA is the home of Amazon, Starbucks and many other massive American companies' headquarters. However, just outside of the bustling metropolitan area is a wealth of vegetation, including Douglas fir, hemlock, western red cedar and ponderosa pine trees. The vibrant colors and variety of lush, green plants make it the perfect backdrop for any drone flight. Especially one flown by the folks at Autel Robotics with their EVO drone.

Tacoma: Seattle's Sister City

Tacoma Sunrise


Tacoma, Washington is the sister Seattle, the more well known city which lies to its north, also on Puget Sound.  With a population of about 200,000, it's a substantial city in its own right, and actually is the older of the two cities.  It continues to be an important rail and shipping hub, which goes back to the days of the late 19th century when it was picked as the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railroad.  Check out Tacoma from a bird's eye perspective in this drone video.

Check out this nighttime aerial view of one of the most iconic sights in the USA's Pacific Northwest, compliments of Cumulus Imaging.  The subject is the Seattle Space Needle, an observation tower on the outskirts of downtown Seattle, Washington.  The tower, which stands just under 185 meters (a tad over 600 ft.) tall, was built in connection with the 1962 World Fair.  Topped with an observation deck and rotating restaurants, it affords spectacular views of Puget Sound and (on clear days) Mt. Rainier.

Check out this excellent drone video of Seattle's Gas Works Park, compliments of contributor jay hicks.  The former site of a coal gasification plant, it sits on the north side of Union Lake, a bit north of downtown.  The park has retained elements of the original plant, which was one of the last coal gas plants in the USA and is considered a historical site.  The park has been used as a movie filming location, and was twice featured on the reality TV series The Amazing Race.

The Spheres


Founded less than three decades ago, Amazon is amongst the 2-3 most valuable companies on the planet.  Its meteoric rise has been instrumental in propelling its hometown of Seattle, Washington into the ranks of the country's most prosperous cities.  Perhaps the most visible symbol of the company's presence is the Amazon Spheres, three globe-shaped domes located on the headquarters campus in the North Denny neighborhood.  See them from above in this drone video by CineFlight.

Check out this great drone video of Bellevue, Washington, compliments of contributor Eric Krebs.  Bellevue is sometimes referred to as the third city of the Seattle-Tacoma Metropolitan Area.  It's probably more accurate to say that it's the area's largest suburb.  Bellevue is situated on the eastern side of Lake Washington.  It was considered a rural area until the 1940's, when it became connected to Seattle via a floating bridge over the lake; a second bridge was added in the 1950's.  

Lake Washington

Lake Washington Waterfront


After Puget Sound, Lake Washington is the most prominent geographical feature of the Seattle-Tacoma Metropolitan Area.  With a surface area of almost 90 square km (just under 35 square mi.), it's the second largest lake in the state.  Since the construction of the Lake Washington Ship Canal in 1934, the lake has been connected directly to Puget Sound and thence to the Pacific Ocean.  You can check out the lake from a bird's eye perspective in this drone video by Loren_Anderson.

Container Ship Getting Towed To Port Tacoma Washington


Here is an amazing aerial view of a large ship being towed into one of the USA's busiest ports.  The vessel is a containership operated by Evergreen Marine, a large Taiwanese shipping company which operates about 150 of these behemoths.  The ship is being towed into the Port of Tacoma, which lies south of Seattle on Washington's Puget Sound.  The ports of Tacoma and Seattle merged their operations in 2015 to form the Northwest Seaport Alliance, which is now the USA's #4 container port.

Poulsbo: Western Puget Sound

While Puget Sound is best known for its two main cities, Seattle and Tacoma, the body of water in western Washington is home to numerous towns.  Many of these smaller communities began as independent villages and fishing ports, but have been absorbed into the Seattle Tacoma Metropolitan Area.  Here's a drone video of one of these communities by contributor shkundas.  Poulsbo lies on an inlet in the western side of the sound, northwest of downtown Seattle.  

Orcas Feeding Near Gig Harbor

An Orca's Breath


Contributor cward360 created this awesome video of some orca's feeding in the waters of Puget Sound in Washington State.  They were filmed in Henderson Bay, an inlet of the sound near Gig Harbor. If you look at a map of the area it's a wonder that these creatures can navigate the convoluted waterways in the area; just making it to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge near the southern end of the sound looks complicated enough and the waterways narrow even further from there!

Snow Day: Shot on EVO

Autel Robotics

It was a rare snow day in Seattle - the city gets a lot of rain, but not a ton of snow like in Maine or Minnesota - so the folks over at Autel Robotics decided to take their EVO drone out to play in the picturesque landscapes. From steamy rivers, to snow-covered trees and frozen waterfalls, frosty landscapes and more, the EVO grabs the colors and negative space provided by the area’s rare snow storm.

Diving Seattle - FPV

FPV Brothers

This first person view (FPV) video from FPV Brothers will give you an entirely new perspective on the great city of Seattle, the informal regional capital of the USA's Pacific Northwest.  On an (untypically, for Seattle) reasonably clear New Year's Day, a GoPro Session 5 affixed to a TBS Crossfire racing drone was used to dive (piloting with video goggles) the 76 story Columbia Center; at 284 meters (933 ft.), it's the tallest building in the Pacific Northwest and one of the half-dozen tallest on the West Coast.

Puget Sound


Check out this brilliant drone video of Puget Sound, the large body of water in western Washington in the USA's Pacific Northwest.  The video opens with an epic shot of downtown Seattle, which lies on the eastern shore of the sound. You'll also see some shots of some of the Sound's hundreds of small inlets.  At about the :30 mark, there is a fantastic shot of the Sound with Mt. Rainier looming in the background; the volcanic mountain is the highest in the Cascades range.
