Great Amerika Quarry

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor and pilot Joe Paskes created this beautiful drone video of a giant disused limestone quarry in the Czech Republic which is so large that it's known as the Czech Grand Canyon.  Velká Amerika is in the province of Central Bohemia, near the town of Mořina.  It's almost a kilometer long and has an 18 meter (about 60 ft.) lake at its bottom.  The quarry was used for mining limestone for much of the 20th century, and since being closed has been frequently used for filming Czech movies.
