Cumberland River Barges in Nashville


Chasing the Ingram Barge in Nashville TN


AirVuz contributor DereksAerial created this drone video of a barge plying the Cumberland River in Nashville, Tennessee.  Barges are a unique type of cargo ship: they do not have onboard power.  The flat-bottomed ships are used to transport cargo on rivers or in other shallow waters that prohibit the deeper drafts associated with on-board propulsion.  During the great age of canal-building in the 19th century, before the widespread adoption of rail transport, barges were the critical form of transportation.

Top contributor BBloss created this fantastic one minute aerial tour of Atlanta, the informal regional capital of the Southeastern USA.  Situated in north central Georgia, the city is the center of a vast metropolitan area which numbers up to 7 million depending on definition.  Atlanta is home to the world's busiest airport, and is a major corporate headquarters city.  It is home to three central business districts (Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead) as well as numerous satellite "mini-cores" in its suburbs.  

Drone Views of Charleston, South Carolina


Beautiful Charleston SC

every day ...

Check out this magnificent drone video of Charleston, South Carolina, compliments of every day drone guy.  The video opens with a great shot of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, a cable-stayed span over the Cooper River.  Then it's on to the USS Yorktown, the retired US Navy aircraft carrier which is moored at the Patriot's Point Naval & Maritime Museum at the mouth of the Cooper.  Much of the rest of the video features shots from around the city itself, which lies between the Cooper and Ashley Rivers.

For a first upload to AirVuz, new contributor RH1N0 brings us this excellent drone video of the city of Nashville, Tennessee.  The video opens with a shot over Nissan Stadium (home of the Tennessee Titans professional (American) football team) looking west over the Cumberland River towards downtown.  Starting at about the :27 mark, there's a nice close-up shot of the skyline; the building on the left is the AT&T Building, Nashville's tallest.  The video ends with a shot flying over the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge towards downtown.
