Aerial Tour of Portland



Drone One ...

It would be hard to overstate the importance of the Williamette River to the city of Portland, Oregon.  The second-largest city of the Pacific Northwest derives its nickname from the many bridges which span the waterway, a major tributary to the Columbia River. In this video by  Drone One Media, you'll get bird's eye view of some of the spans of Bridge City, including the Fremont Bridge (the world's second-longest tiered-arch bridge), the Steel Bridge (a lift bridge), the Broadway Bridge, and more.   

Portland under Covid-19 Quarantine

Check out this drone video of Portland, Oregon during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020, compliments of skyroamer.  While the USA's "patient zero" case was confirmed in nearby Seattle, Washington in late January, Oregon didn't see its first confirmed infection until February 28th.  Governor Kate Brown created a coronavirus response team on the same day, and instituted a statewide shelter-in-place order on March 23.  As of mid-April, Oregon had one of the lowest per-capita infection and death rates.

Portland, Oregon has become something of a hipster-magnet in no small part due to the hit TV show Portlandia.   Created by and starred by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, the show ran for eight seasons on the IFC cable network beginning in 2011.  The show was a favorite among GenX'ers, and its use of quirky characters to show off a quirky city helped the already-hip city go from strength to strength.  For those who already miss the show, this short piece by mcQ shot from Portland will bring back fond memories.  

Portland's Bridges


Willamette River Bridges | Portland, OR


Portland, Oregon is sometimes called "Bridge City", and when you see this drone video by AirVuz contributor onewheeldrone you'll see why.  His video opens with a shot looking downstream on the Williamette River, showing (in order) the Ross Island, Tilikum Crossing, and Marquam Bridges; downtown Portland, on the western bank of the river, is on the left.  Continuing downstream, you'll see the Hawthorne, SE Morrison, Burnside, and Steel Bridges.  Further downstream and not shown are two more spans: the NW Broadway and Fremont Bridges.  

Portland's Waterfront and Bridges


Portland, Oregon, City of Natural Beauty


Contributor Randy combined drone and ground camera footage to create this aerial tour of Portland, Oregon and its surroundings.  The focus of the video is the city's waterfront along the Williamette River that flows through the city, enroute to its confluence with the Columbia River just north of the city.  The video features the Tom McCall Waterfront Park, Waterfront Park Trail, Union Station, some of the city's many bridges (such as the Hawthorne , Fremont), and other sites just outside the city such as Bonneville Dam.  

Hillsboro's Airplane in the Woods


Airplane in the woods


One of the most unusual sights of the USA's Pacific Northwest is in the woods of Hillsboro, a western suburb of Portland, Oregon.  It's a retired Boeing 727 airliner which was purchased about two decades ago by a man named Bruce Campbell and turned into his residence, one of a handful of retired jetliners around the world which have been similarly repurposed.  It's a practice that is actually being encouraged by the airframe manufacturers as an environmentally sustainable means of plane disposal.
