Aerial Hoover Dam

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor TampaRandy created this beautiful narrated video from Hoover Dam, arguably the world's most famous.  Situated on the Colorado River about a half-hour drive from Las Vegas, the 221 meter (726 ft.) tall concrete gravity dam created Lake Mead, the USA's largest reservoir.  A Depression-era public works project designed for hydroelectricity and flood control, its construction cost over a hundred lives but provided much-needed employment for thousands and helped give birth to modern Las Vegas.
