I happened to be in the area with my new drone, so I decided to complete a bucket-list item and make quick video. I basically turned around as soon as I lost sight of it, lol. I'm still getting the hang of the controls. I won't be making regular videos, since we've already got several skilled pilots.

Pictures do not convey how gigantic this structure is. I drove in from the south, and could see the building before I even crossed the river.



No Cybertrucks were harmed in the making of this video.

Have a passenger video as you drive up from the south, and show how long it takes to drive by that beast of a building. That might be something the rest of us can relate to and grasp the size.

We will all chip in and pay for the lost drone, you had an opening. Glory follows the bold and put @Ogre ’s name on it for plausible deniability ?

At mile long and basically five stories tall, it has rooms larger than entire downtowns.

It really is difficult to explain... or even see, that those windows are gigantic and it's not just a smaller structure.

Also, thank you for giving me something fun to watch today when the news is so decidedly bitter.

I was headed to Hornsby Bend Bird Observatory, which is in the vicinity. It’s actually a city wastewater treatment plant, and the settling ponds attract birds by the thousands. Here’s a few hundred ducks:

I opted not to fly the drone here due to the windy conditions, but I couldn’t resist a quick hop at the factory.

Hopefully if you fly the drone you aren’t disturbing the ducks.

Onya Gus,

I got my fix.

Jeff did a pre-dawn interior video, yours is the only daylight for the day.

You have contributed to the historical record.
