Good morning, here are yesterday’s headlines as well as an amazing drone video of Masada in Israel. Enjoy!

Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

Today’s video is from Jeffrey Worthington who was allowed to fly his Inspire 2 drone over the amazing fortress of Masada.

This is what he had to say about it:

“It was an honor to be allowed to film over some of Israel’s priceless archaeological treasures. Special thanks to Israel’s National Park Authority. Flying solo (i.e. operating the drone and the camera alone) with two remote control units was a huge challenge, especially on a windy day!”

Well, I think you pulled it off, Jeff! Congrats on some awesome footage.
