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.  In this short but impressive video, contributor David Yip gives us an aerial tour of the Seattle waterfront on Puget Sound, specifically its Elliot Bay.  The video opens with a shot of the Space Needle (north of downtown), then moving to the Seattle Great Wheel and the skyline lined up impressively behind it.  The latter is the largest Ferris Wheel on the USA's West Coast.

Tacoma: Seattle's Sister City


Tacoma Sunrise


Tacoma, Washington is the sister city to Seattle, the more well known city which lies to its north, also on Puget Sound.  With a population of about 200,000, Tacoma is a substantial city in its own right, and actually is the older of the two.  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.

The Amazon Spheres


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.    

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.  

Around Puget Sound


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, on a sort of inlet called Elliott Bay. 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.  

The Port of Seattle-Tacoma


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 fourth-busiest container port in the United States.

Check out this excellent 4k drone video of the twin-span Tacoma Narrows Bridge near Seattle, Washington, compliments of contributor 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. 

Bellevue: Greater Seattle's Third City


Aerial/Drone Video of beautiful Bellevue, Washington in Autumn colors


For a first upload to AirVuz, brand-new contributor mykdol brings us this excellent drone video of Bellevue, Washington.  Bellevue lies on the eastern side of Lake Washington, opposite Seattle.  It was largely 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.  With a current population nearing 150k, it's the third-largest city in the Seattle-Tacoma Metropolitan Area, the 15th largest in the USA as of 2020.

Snow Day: Shot on EVO

Autel Robo...

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 of Seattle's outlying areas, where the urban quickly transitions to rural. 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.

AirVuz contributor infinity films brings us this excellent drone video flyover of the quadrangle of the University of Washington campus in Seattle. Located in the city's University District, northeast of Lake Union, the public university was founded in 1861.  Its student body of a bit under 50k is roughly two-thirds undergraduate, with the remainder spread across dozens of graduate and professional schools.  A major research institution, the school is also an athletic powerhouse and a member of the Pac 10 college sports conference.

Yi Jun Luo...

The Tacoma Dome is one of the more recognizable landmarks in Seattle's "sister" city.  Opened in 1983, the arena is used for concerts, indoor soccer, American football, basketball, and hockey.  During the 1990's, the Dome was the home court of the Seattle Supersonics of the National Basketball Association while the Seattle Center Coliseum was being renovated.  Seen in this drone video by Yi Jun Luo, the Dome has a seating capacity which ranges up to about 21k for spectator games.  

Southern Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier

Rainier, about a 90 minute drive southeast of Tacoma. 

FPV Diving the Space Needle


Seattle | Space Needle


Check out this adrenaline-filled first person view (FPV) drone diving video from the famous Space Needle in Seattle, Washington, compiments of AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot Shamkhal_fpv.  The 605 ft. (184 m) observation tower was built for the 1962 World's Fair; at the time, it was the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River.  It remains one of the most recognized landmarks in this Pacific Northwestern city even as its height has been eclipsed by over a dozen skyscrapers in the adjacent Downtown district.  

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.  

Seattle's Inner Harbor


Cinematic in Seattle


For a first upload to AirVuz, skymotion brings us this fantastic aerial tour of the waterfront of Seattle, Washington. The area filmed is known as the "inner harbor", and it's the historic core of the largest city in the USA's Pacific Northwest region. Chosen as a DVOW Finalist, the video features footage of the Seattle Great Wheel (a giant Ferris wheel at Pier 57), the Seattle Aquarium, the skyscrapers which lie just east of the waterfront, and the more modern port facilities which lie just to the south of the core downtown.

Seattle's Lush Outskirts



Autel Robo...

One of the things making Seattle, Washington such an attractive area is the wealth of outdoor spots around the bustling metro.  Here can be found an array of vegetation including Douglas fir, hemlock, western red cedar and ponderosa pine trees. The vibrant colors and variety of lush plants make it the perfect backdrop for any drone flight. Witness this piece by Autel Robotics, who put their EVO to good use creating a memorable portrait of the area's nature.

Contributor cward360 created this awesome video of some orca's (aka killer whales) feeding in the waters of Puget Sound in Washington State, part of the USA's Pacific Northwest.  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!
