Every day around here is different—but last Wednesday took it to new heights. A few colleagues and I ended up on top of the Penn Tower garage counting down a liftoff. “Four, three, two, one.” And with that, a mini helicopter (well, technically a hexacopter) took to the skies, right off the roof, and headed to the newest addition to the Perelman School of Medicine campus skyline: The Henry A. Jordan M’62 Medical Education Center.
The building is quickly rising higher, and we’re working with a professional drone photographer to capture the construction progress up to its completion. That’s where the hexacopter “Airwolf” (pictured above) comes in. This state-of-the-art drone is equipped with a digital camera that will zip up and around the site periodically over the next six months or so snapping stills and video.
