TidBITS contributor Julio Ojeda-Zapata of the St. Paul Pioneer Press pulled an undesirable weekend reporting shift recently, but was able to turn it into a grand geek adventure by filming the explosive demolition of the 280-foot chimney stack on a decommissioned power plant. He relied on his iPhone 5c, a Nokia Lumia 1020, a Sony handheld camcorder, and the help of a number of friends, one of whom was flying camera-equipped drones above the site. Julio pulled it all together with Final Cut Pro X and shared the full story — along with the video — on TwinCities.com.follow link

Tech Geeks Film Explosive Chimney Stack Demolition
Cool. Here's the direct link to the news article with video and stills. http://www.twincities.com/localnews/ci_25355143/st-paul-smokestack-explodes-minimal-smoke?IADID=Search-www.twincities.com-www.twincities.com
I'm wondering why only two viewpoints were shown on the story...with no signs of the drones?
In the video, there are a lot of aerial shots from the drones.
Sorry, Adam, I used John B's link above instead of going back to your original post which indeed, has a ton of drone shots. My mistake. Thanks for pointing it out.
