Castles and Windmills - MavicPro 4K

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

While the Dutch did not invent windmills, they developed an important variation called the post mill design which represented a major improvement over earlier designs.  The harnessing of wind to saw timber for ships was one of the reasons that Holland (the western province of the Netherlands) was able to establish a huge overseas empire in the 16th-17th centuries, in effect punching far above its weight.  Contributor Benpwallis used a drone to create an amazing aerial tour of these predecessors to modern wind turbines.
