Today’s video is something completely different and arguably a little stronger than caffeine – an explosive demolition filmed by a drone in 4K. So grab your double shot espresso and have a look.
The is what the makers, Airflix.dk had to say:
“Two power masts in “Limfjorden” in the northern part of Denmark was removed with explosives in August 2015. Each mast had approx. 5 kg of explosives at the feet for a clean cut and to make sure the masts landed safely on shore. The bridge was up and ships were kept away at a safe distance during the explosion. At the bottom of the mast – 8 m from the explosives – we mounted a GoPro Hero 4 Black which luckily survived the blast with no scratches. Filmed with an Inspire 1 drone.”
