Drone footage shows what it's like to be a bird flying over an airport

This drone gives us a never-before-seen look at Mexico City Airport.

AMAZING OVERHEAD FOOTAGE of an active major international airport is incredibly difficult to come by.

Probably because flying drones through an active takeoff and landing zone full of massive airliners can be tricky. So it’s definitely a special occasion to see drone footage of Mexico City International Airport by Postandfly.

The concept of remotely operative flying vehicles is still somewhat controversial in most places. Legal regulations in the US still place strict prohibitions on the use of drones in many settings — especially around airports. In fact, a drone nearly collided with a US Airways jet near Tallahassee Regional Airport early this year.

Fortunately, the filmmakers received permission from Mexico City International to collect this spectacular footage. In fact, the drone even got a friendly wave from an air traffic controller in the airport’s tower. Due to regulations, it is highly unlikely we will ever be able to capture such gorgeous footage in Ireland. So, hooray Mexico.
