Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge connects the City of San Francisco with Marin County to its north, at the opening of San Francisco Bay.  It was conceived during the depths of the Great Depression, and at the time of its completion in 1937, it was the longest and tallest suspension span bridge in the world at 1.3k meters (4.2k ft.).  Contributor Jordanthe used a drone to create a memorable aerial view of this bridge, which since its construction has been one of the most iconic sites in the United States.

Tower Bridge, London in 4K

CH drone

Contributor CH Drone created this amazing aerial video of London's Tower Bridge, one of the world's most iconic spans.  Like the older London Bridge, it crosses the Thames River, the waterway which gave rise to the great city on its banks.  Tower Bridge was built in the late 19th century when the growth of the City of London necessitated a second bridge (although technically its northern end is not in the City).  The bridge was prominently featured when London hosted the Summer Olympics in 2012.

My 9/11 Tribute: DJI P4 Over the Brooklyn Bridge

Sikview

The Brooklyn Bridge connects the New York City burroughs of Brooklyn and Manhattan over the East River.  Completed in 1883, the construction of the 1.8k meter (almost 6k ft.) long hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge was one of the most important events in the building of modern day New York.  In this video, creator Sikview flew a DJI Phantom 4 Professional drone over the bridge, providing us with a memorable bird's eye view of this immense structure.

Stari Most: The Mostar Bridge

AlexAvsharov

Of all the sights of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the most recognized is likely the Stari Most ("Old Bridge") over the Neretva River in Mostar.   Built under the Ottoman Empire in 1556 or 1557, the 29 meter (about 100  ft.) Mostar Bridge is one of the most recognizable historical sights in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site.  In this video, Alex Avsharov used his DJI Mavic Air to give us a breathtaking aerial view of Stari Most, which was heavily damaged in the Yugoslav civil war of the mid-1990's.

Alan Chan

Prague's Charles Bridge is one of the most recognized sites of the Czech capital city.  The bridge, which took 45 years to build, connects Prague Castle with the city's historic Old Town.  At 515 meters in length (1.7k ft), the stone span over the Vltava River represented an immense technological achievement at the time it was completed 1402.  Contributor Alan Chan used a DJI Phantom 3 drone to create an impressive bird's eye view of this treasured historical landmark in the heart of Central Europe.

Jorge Novo Murias

Jorge Novo Murias used a drone to create this epic bird's eye view of of Portugal's Vasco de Gama Bridge.  The highly complex span was completed in 1998 in connection with Expo 1998, the celebration of the 500th anniversary of Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama's epic voyage to India.  The cable-stayed bridge, which is the second longest in Europe, spans 12.3 km (7.3 mi) over the Tagus river and is now a critical part of metropolitan Lisbon's infrastructure.

Forth Bridges, Scotland.

John Banks

The Firth of Forth is an estuary where several of Scotland's most important rivers (the Firth, North Sea, and Fife) empty into the North Sea.  It is actually a fjord dating from the last glacial period.  The Firth is crossed by three bridges: Forth Bridge, Forth Road Bridge, and Queensferry Crossing, the last having just opened in 2017.  Contributor John Banks used a drone to give us an aerial look at these three spans across this important waterway, on which sits the great Scottish capital Edinburgh.

Yacht Cruise on Sydney Harbor, Australia

EdDrone

In this video, contributor EdDrone used a DJI Mavic Air to aerially capture the fun of a sunset cruise in Sydney Harbor, Australia.  The sequence opens and closes with some great shots of what is perhaps the city's most prominent landmark, the Harbor Bridge.  Built in the 1930's, the 1.15k meter (about 3.8k ft.) through-arch bridge was similarly important to Sydney, connecting its downtown to the North Shore.  It is the world's tallest steel arch bridge, and by most accounts the most beautiful.
