Wood Island Light, Biddeford Pool, Maine


AirVuz contributor and pilot DaveIN NH brings us this excellent drone video of one of America's oldest lighthouses.  Maine's Wood Island Light is located on its namesake island, near the mouth of the Saco River and about halfway between Portland and Kennebunkport.  Built on the site of an earlier structure, the current tower dates to 1858.  Automated since 1986, the tower has a height of 14 meters or 41 ft.  It is the second-oldest lighthouse in Maine after Portland Head Light, and the 11th-oldest in the USA.
