Mexico City International Airport from a drone’s-eye view

Here’s something we don’t get to see everyday: a drone flying around the runways of an international airport. In close contact with the control tower and pilots, Mexico City-based drone photo and video company Postandfly captured some incredibly rare moving images from above Mexico City International Airport. As stated within the video, the drone flew with the permission and supervision of the Mexico City International Airport authorities.

Watch as airplanes taxi, take off, and land. Also, file under communication and signs: check out all of the runway markings from above.
