Abandoned Steel Mill - DJI MAVIC PRO - 4k

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Birmingham, Alabama was once known as the Pittsburgh of the South for its steel factories, which turned the city into the largest manufacturing center in the Southeastern USA for a time.  Beginning in the 1970's, the industry retrenched here as it did in the north, and many blast furnaces were shut down.  In this drone video by Alec Smirts, you'll get an aerial view of one of the Ensley Works, which was operated by Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad Co. until being completely shut down in 1984.
