Night flight across Longyearbyen

Equipped with a camera he sends his remote-controlled quadrocopter on a midnight flight across the icy center of Longyearbyen. The journey starts in upper Longyeardalen at the connecting road between Nybyen and Huset and takes us across the town, to the coast of Adventfjorden. On the other side of the fjord the full moon is standing above the mountains of Hiortfjellet. In front of the university building of UNIS the aerial drone stops and turns to the left, catching the view to the airport and to Isfjorden. Then it returns to its starting point on the same route. On our way back we can see a group of snowmobiles coming down the Longyearbreen glacier.
Very impressive images!

The ‘cameraman’ Heinrich Eggenfellner lives in Longyearbyen and some of the Spitsbergen travelers might know him as skipper/owner of the Arctica II, a boat which Spitsbergen-Svalbard.com uses for sailing tours since 2014.
