In a video called “Santa Monica Airlines,” posted by Robert Mcintosh, the Santa Monica Pier and surrounding parts of the beach are flown over and through by a remote-controlled device on which a camera is mounted, giving viewers a bird’s-eye view of the popular tourist attraction.
Mcintosh manages to fly through the Ferris wheel and the corkscrew portion of Pacific Park’s roller coaster.
When asked by yovenice.com how he “threaded the needle,” he said, “I just held my breath and tried not to blink.”
In the past, Mcintosh has also recorded and posted a similar video to YouTube featuring Venice Beach.
