Life After People: Chernobyl


Pripyat, Ukraine was founded in 1970 to house workers to build and then operate the nearby Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. When one of the reactors exploded during a testing procedure on April 26th, 1986, the town of nearly 50,000 people was evacuated and has not been re-occupied due to contamination. Cinematographer Tomáš Golej created this amazing drone video to commemorate three heroes: a trio of workers who knowingly risked their lives to prevent an even worse disaster.

    VP of Community Management at AirVūz I love the amazing capability of camera and racing drones, I love the spectacular videos and photos they produce, and I love to meet and celebrate the talented people who fly them! I'm a budding pilot myself and am currently practicing with my family and friends! While we currently fly with our Mavic, my husband and I have also practiced our flying with the Chroma, our Parrot, and about a dozen of the micro-drones we have around the house! And yep - our giant doggie hated them all :-) I love to hear from our enthusiastic members of our AirVūz community, so please stay in touch!
