For over four centuries following its completion in 1557, Süleymaniye Mosque was the largest in Istanbul, Turkey, a city famous for its mosques.  Surpassed only in 2019 by the massive Çamlıca Mosque, Süleymaniye Mosque is located on the city's Third Hill, just south of the Golden Horn.  Seen here in this drone video by AirVuz contributor and pilot ucarakkesfet, it's named after Suleiman the Magnificent, the longest-reigning Ottoman sultanate, who ruled from 1520-1556 during the height of Ottoman world power.

Former Drone Video of the Week Finalist Akos Kovacs brings us this excellent drone video from the Alps Mountains in the the wintertime.  The video was filmed over Austria and the German state of Bavaria, both of which are partially covered by this majestic range of mountains that lie in the heart of the European continent.  With their northern latitude and high altitudes, much of the area covered by the Alps becomes a snow covered winter wonderland during the cold months of the year.

Iceland. Droneflight through the Canyon - Cinematic FPV


Prepare to be amazed by this first person view (FPV) flight through a famous canyon in Iceland, compliments of AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot littlewing fpv.  Fjaðrárgljúfur is located in the southeastern part of the island.  It is known for its very steep walls, which incidentally make it an extremely challenging spot for even an experienced FPV pilot.  The canyon runs for about 1.2 mi (about 2 km) and is up to 330 ft. deep (about 100 m).  This video was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in January of 2022.
