Bramble Airport Buried Forever ~ MONTSERRAT ~ Exclusion Zone V ~ Drone Caribbean ~ WeBeYachting.com

Take a look at the lost W.H. Bramble airport destroyed by multiple volcano eruptions. We where not allowed to enter this part of the exclusion zone V. The footage seen here was shot from the safety zone of Jack Boy Hill.

W.H. Bramble Airport, also known as Blackburne Airport, was a small international airport on the east coast of the island of Montserrat, a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. It was named after Montserrat Chief Minister William Henry Bramble.

The airport was destroyed in 1997 by an eruption of the nearby Soufriere Hills volcano, which obliterated much of the southern part of the island. For several years after the disaster, Montserrat was only accessible by helicopters or boats, until July 2005, when the new Gerald's Airport (now John A. Osborne Airport) was completed at the north end of the island. Bramble Airport had used the IATA airport code MNI, but this has now been transferred to the new airport.

Today only a few visible structures can be seen, The airport was is permanently damaged and is not repairable.

History
Montserrat is a small island, only 10 miles long by 7 miles wide, located in the Leeward Islands chain of the Lesser Antilles. It is only about 40 square miles in size, but due to recent volcanic activity it is actually increased in size.
Despite being diminutive, the location and topography of Montserrat proved to be attractive to early explorers. Christopher Columbus was first reported to have spotted the island in 1493 and he named it Santa Maria de Montserrat for a monastery in Catalonia, Spain.

Disaster Strikes
Montserrat has fallen victim to natural disasters multiple times in its history. In 1989 Hurricane Hugo would kill 21 people and destroy 90% of the island, causing an estimated $300M in damage. Despite the near total destruction of the island, they would receive aid and rebuild. In July of 1995, the previously-dormant Soufrière Hills volcano would erupt. It would send pyroclastic lava flows in all directions – including toward the town of Plymouth. By August of 1995 residents were evacuated when fragmented volcanic ash began to fall on the town; several months later the residents were allowed to return. On June 25th, 1997, another eruption would see the town almost completely overcome by pyroclastic surges. Nineteen people were killed, and once again Plymouth was evacuated. Soufrière Hills would continue to erupt into August, and eventually bury 80% of Plymouth.

Volcanic Exclusion Zone & The Future
The government has prohibited anyone from entering the area affected by the pyroclastic flows. Even homes that were not overcome by the flows were forced to be abandoned (see below). If the roads to get to these homes weren’t destroyed, the plumbing and electrical infrastructure was. The inability to rebuild in the area has left these otherwise sound structures to sit empty and rot. Recovery of Plymouth would be next-to impossible. The hard pyroclastic flow buries the town in a concrete-like rock. Sewage pipes are severed. There is very little grass or soil and the town has a moon-like surface covered in rock and large boulders. Rebuilding would require large-scale demolition not available to Montserrat; heavy equipment and explosives would be needed just to break up the rock, and the now-infertile scorched earth beneath offers little incentive to try. Even if the island had the capability to rebuild, the cost to do so would be astronomical, further reducing the chance that Plymouth Montserrat will ever return.

Supernatural Mountain | Montserrat Spain | Full Time Travel Vlog 10

Supernatural Mountain Holy Grail | Montserrat Spain | Full Time Travel Vlog 10

Subscribe: | ��Make sure to enable ALL push notifications!��

Montserrat is one hour from Barcelona but bit of a hidden gem. Although plenty of tourists visit the monastery, the walking routes are very quiet. This place has a fascinating history with Napoleon and Himmler paying it a visit. Himmler specifically came looking for the holy grail which he believed would give him supernatural powers. It is easy to get here from Barcelona and a perfect day trip. We sleep in our car again and find out that many truck stops have showers to use for a small fee, a great budget travel hack.

DAY TRIP TO MONTSERRAT BARCELONA,SPAIN || TRAVEL VLOG

Montserrat is a multi-peaked mountain range near Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. It is part of the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range. The main peaks are Sant Jeroni, Montgrós and Miranda de les Agulles.
It is well known as the site of the Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat, which hosts the Virgin of Montserrat sanctuary.

Montserrat literally means saw (serrated, like the common handsaw) mountain in Catalan. It describes its peculiar aspect with multitude of rock formations which are visible from a great distance. The mountain is composed of strikingly pink conglomerate, a form of sedimentary rock. Montserrat was designated as a National Park in 1987. On this mountain we will have access to the Monastery of Montserrat which houses the virgin that gives its name to the monastery, although it is also known as La Moreneta

Spain: Santa Maria de Montserrat

As Spain begins to reopen to travelers, a must visit is Santa Maria de Montserrat.
Tucked high up in the mountains outside of Barcelona, Spain lies the monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat, home to the famous Black Madonna. The natural beauty and nature surrounding the monastery is simply breathtaking, an area for prayer and meditation. A cable car takes you over 2,300 feet high to explore the majestic church on the edge of the mountains and has become a symbol for Catalonia and a pilgrimage point for Christian believers and a must-see for tourists.

Spain's MUST SEE Hidden Gem | Hiking Congost de Mont-rebei Catalonia | Full Time Travel Vlog 11

Spain's MUST see Hidden Gem | Congost de Mont-rebei | Full Time Travel Vlog 11

Subscribe: | ��Make sure to enable ALL push notifications!��

We were so lucky to be recommended hiking Congost de Mont-rebei in Catalonia and it turns out to be our best thing to do in Spain. You can do it on the Aragon side but we explored the Catalonian side. After another night in the car we came to a must see hidden gem in Spain. The hike took in total 8 hours but was worth every step. The blue water of the river running through was breathtaking as was the trek trail itself. This place is so far off the tourist trail and beaten path and collectively we saw about 3 people the whole day. If you want to feel like you are discovering some hidden place like an old fashioned adventurer, this is the one for you. In this Spain travel video we hopefully capture why it is worth coming to Spain for Congost de Mont-rebei alone.

My Solo Europe trip: Weekend at Barcelona Montserrat Monastery, Plaza Espanya, Sagrada de Familia

Sharing to you guys my salvaged videos and pictures from my Barcelona trip.

I flew to Barcelona airport from Copenhagen. I stayed overnight in Barcelona before moving to Pisa, Italy.

I apologize in advance for the very shaky hands! @_@ I was at a point in my life that I prefer to experience places and culture without the camera. I find taking too much pictures and videos makes me disconnected from the world. I had a great time meeting people, checking out really awesome architectures (ehem, Gaudí!), and tasting great food!

My favorite place in Barcelona? It's too many to mention, but it's most likely the Magic Fountian of Montjuic! It's so romantic there I kept wishing for my boyfriend to be there (haha lol)

My airfare was only around $10 (If I remember correctly), and this is no joke. I will upload a video soon on how I got that cheap price.
