Back Cove Swing Bridge, Portland, Maine


Check out this drone video of a creepy-looking abandoned bridge in the USA's New England Region, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot DaveIN NH.  It's called the Back Cove Swing Bridge, and it's located in Portland, Maine.  It's what's known as a swing-bridge, a 19th century design which allowed for the passage of ships via twisting the bridge from an in-line position to a perpendicular one.  Built in the mid-1800's to connect Portland with Yarmouth, the bridge was damaged by an arson-induced fire in 1984 and abandoned.
