Port of Long Beach Inspection of Long Beach International Gateway Bridge (aka Gerald Desmond Bridge) Complete

After many attempts, the inspection of the new Long Beach International Gateway Bridge is now complete. Great job team since at any one time we had 7 pilots, crew and helpers on the bridge at a single time.  Great job team!

UPDATE (May 13, 2022):  This podcast was just published describing the challenges of this inspection.  Listen to it here:


A ship travels under the Long Beach International Gateway Bridge in the early morning hours.


Pilot Lucie flies our M300-RTK with H20T sensor during our daytime inspection attempt.


Using a spotlight on a 2nd M300, the primary M300 captures it’s OWN shadow being casted onto the bridge tower.


Yes, that’s Frank Segarra supporting the bottom line of the Cable-Cam (November 3, 2021 @ 12:35am)

LA Times Writes About Artwork Sky Ladder Drones Helped Create

It was a late afternoon call on a winter’s afternoon with a very strange request… can you capture clean photographs the billboards on The Reef building just South of downtown Los Angeles for an upcoming art exhibition. With our experience capturing photos and videos of digital billboards for other clients, this seemed straight forward — until you realized they are 800+ feet wide.

The artist and artwork that has incorporated the photos we took the next evening just launched and is AMAZING.  Here’ a LA Times article which covers Sayre Gomez’s amazing artwork.
