The folks at Philly By Air, a high-quality aerial photography firm based in Philadelphia, have launched a video today ahead of Pope Francis' visit to the city on Sept. 26-27.
The video, filmed with drones in ultra HD 4K, provides an aerial tour of the city and includes such landmarks as the Philadelphia Art Museum, Boathouse Row, Logan Circle, University City and Independence Mall.
"It was a lot of fun to shoot and produce," Satell said. "We ended up getting some great shots of the city."
Ironically, the Federal Aviation Administration has issued restrictions that prohibit the use of all drones and model aircraft during the papal visit.
"It's too bad," Satell said of the drone ban, "but I can understand the security concerns."
