The Chernobyl Disaster - The Ukraine Ghost Town | Chernobyl Cinematic 4K Footage


Multiple Drone Video of the Week Winner oculusfilms brings us this haunting drone video from the scene of one of history's greatest industrial accidents: the explosion of the No. 4 Reactor at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in northern Ukraine in April, 1986.  The disaster forced the evacuation of the nearby city of Pripyat, none of whose 50k+ population ever returned.  One of only two accidents with the highest severity rating under the International Nuclear Event Scale, the disaster caused thousands of cancer deaths.  

Bolivian Train Cemetery


Train Cemetery of Uyuni


Award-winning contributor and pilot LA.Drones created this amazing drone video of a train cemetery in southwestern Bolivia.  The city of Uyuni is the largest city in the region, which sits on the great Antiplano plateay and is also home to the Uyuni Salt Flats.  When the area's critical mining industry collapsed in the 1940's, the local railroads collapsed too.  Uyuni being the main rail junction, the trains ended up being abandoned just outside of the city, resulting in what you'll see in the video.

Abandoned Mexican Hacienda




The Laguna de Aljojuca is a landmark crater lake in the Aljojuca Municaplity in Puebla, Mexico, southeast of Mexico City.  Located at the base of this of crater stands the long-abandoned shell of Cancantla, a once-inviting hacienda, which was beautifully filmed in cinematic style by award-winning contributor and drone pilot PostandFly.  With sweeping aerials views of the imposing crater-lake and the surrounding plains, this drone video evokes the abandonment seen by the area in recent years.

Ghost Town Near Las Vegas


Ghost Town Las Vegas


Ghost towns are prominent features of parts of the American West.  As the USA's western interior developed at a breakneck pace in the late 1800's, it was not uncommon for some towns to suffer setbacks such as mine depletion, an outbreak of disease, or not being sited on new railroad routes.  Many of these communities were simply abandoned and forgotten to the ages.  AirVuz contributor and pilot DRONEPIXEL created an epic drone video of one of these ghostly sights, a small mining town near Las Vegas, Nevada.

Abandoned Resort in Malta


White Rocks: Abandoned Hotel in Malta


The long-deserted White Rocks Resort on the Mediterranean island of Malta is an urban explorer's paradise as seen here in contributor rikk08's aerial footage.  The complex has been sitting, untended and slowly decaying, for two decades on the coast of Pembroke.  Instead of gathering tourists for its initial intended purpose, it has drawn in street artists and vandals over the years — becoming an eerie graffiti gallery for URBEX enthusiasts.  Check it out from above in this drone video by contributor Rikk08.
