For Detroit

Reel Aeria...

Reel Aerials created this highly stylized drone video of Detroit, often known as the Motor City.  The city is situated on the Detroit River in eastern Michigan.  Detroit is credited with giving birth to the modern automobile and is still considered the worldwide center of the industry.  From roughly 1920 to 1940, it was the fourth largest city in the country.  While declining auto industry employment has caused a dramatic loss of population (totalling over 60% from peak), it's currently experiencing a renaissance.  

Minneapolis and St. Paul

Montreal is the largest city in the Canadian province of Quebec and the second largest city in Canada.  It stands in stark contrast to its larger, flashier "neighbor" Toronto, which lies about 540 km (around 320 mi.) to its southwest.  What Montreal lacks in skyscrapers though it makes up for in culture, with a unique blend of French and English heritage.  Contributor Dizfilms created this epic drone video of the great city on the St. Lawrence River, which is also known for being the second largest French-speaking city after Paris.





Cleveland, Ohio is one of the largest cities in the USA's Midwest.  It is situated on the southern shore of Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes.  Cleveland was once known as the Buckle of the Rustbelt for its leading role in America's key manufacturing sectors.  While it is still a leading industrial center, the city has seen its waterfront transformed in recent years with new stadiums and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  In this video, contributor Droneloop gives us a brief but epic aerial tour of this storied city.



Arise Pittsburgh


Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is the largest city within the Appalachian region of the USA.  Built on the site of Fort Pitt, the city sits at the point where the Allegheny River joins the Monangahela to form the Ohio.  Pittsburgh rose to prominence as the center of the US steel industry, once the country's biggest economic engine.  Perspectrum used a DJI Inspire 2 drone to create this impressive aerial video of the city's skyscrapers, which include the headquarters of US Steel - at one point the world's largest corporation.



Fog Over Baltimore

The Inner Harbor of Baltimore, Maryland was once one of the busiest shipping ports in the United States.  As shipping technology progressed, the port's shallow waters could not accommodate the larger ships, and the port was relocated to deeper waters further east.  Eventually the Inner Harbor area was redeveloped into an entertainment/mixed use district.  Airuz contributor and pilot Eyes in the Sky used DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this aerial view of the Inner Harbour area, with downtown Baltimore in the background.
