Check out these amazing aerial views of the Canadian island of Newfoundland, compliments of contributor newfound drone. One of the largest islands in the Western Hemisphere by land area, Newfoundland covers almost 109k square km (about 42k square mi.), roughly the same size as the USA state of Tennessee. Part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, it's separated from the Canadian mainland by the Strait of Belle Isle. Newfoundland didn't join Canada until 1949, and it remains one of the country's most culturally distinct regions.
