Rio Antirrio bridge Patras - Massive structure

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

This excellent piece by AirVuz contributor SioU uses a combination of archival and drone footage to tell the story of the Rio-Antirrio Bridge, considered one of the modern wonders of Greece.  The cable-stayed structure spans the Gulf of Corinth, connecting the mainland of Central Greece with the city of Patras on the Peloponnese Peninsula.  With a total length of almost 2.9k meters (almost 9.5k ft.), it's one of the longest bridges of its type in the world.  It was opened just before the Athens-hosted 2004 Summer Olympics.
