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)
