Chernobyl and Pripyat 33 years after disaster

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Here's a haunting yet fascinating aerial tour of the site of one of history's great industrial disasters: the Chernobyl nuclear power plant near the town of Pripyat in the Ukraine.  Commissioned in 1977, the giant plant's No. 4 reactor exploded in 1986, spewing a huge cloud of radioactive material across the western part of the then-Soviet Union and all the way into Western Europe.  The town of Pripyat, which had a population of 50k, was permanently evacuated and will likely never be re-occupied.
