USAG Kwajalein Atoll - A Place Like No Other || Aerial Highlights

USAG-KA is located in the Marshall Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. While being key for US national security, its remoteness and location allow for many unique times in your not-so-typical 9-5pm job. Please enjoy some of the memories that I have collected over the past couple years while living on this amazing two-mile-long piece of coral.

All drone shots of Kwaj were taken before the Army drone ban (pre-summer 2017).

Kwajalein Atoll Drone Highlights

Beautiful footage of Kwajalein atoll. I am happy to have captured the footage I have during my stay here. Still want to capture as much of the magic of this place as possible.

I finally managed to upload this video with slight variations from the one I uploaded last year on vimeo. This was my first drone video made on island and is still my favorite. Hoping for more opportunities to create more Kwaj highlights, but we will see. Adventure may take me elsewhere. Love the people here and the island! Best of luck to everyone leaving (and staying)! Kwaj is shaped like a boomerang for a reason...you never know.

All footage of Kwajalein Island was filmed pre-Army ban on DJI and drones. Dragonfly Superyacht was filmed up by Bigej Islands where there is good kitesurfing but tons of flies (should have mentioned that to you Shaun).

Filmed with a Phantom 4 with PolarPro ND filter

Bikini Atoll, The Marshall Islands

Lost somewhere in the ocean, this island looks like a paradise, doesn’t it? But Bikini Atoll was actually home to numerous nuclear testing programs that turned the picturesque island of Bikini into a radioactive wasteland. The inhabitants were forced to abandon their homes, and even today this remains hazardous for living organisms: the abnormally high level of radiation recorded here can cause cancer.

Between 1946 and 1958, 23 nuclear devices were detonated by the United States at seven test sites located on the reef, inside the atoll, in the air, or underwater.

In 1996, the Bikini Council authorized diving operations as a means to generate income for Bikini islanders currently and upon their eventual return. The tours, limited to fewer than a dozen experienced divers a week, cost more than US$5000 and include detailed histories of the nuclear tests.

The Marshall Islands are a sprawling chain of volcanic islands and coral atolls in the central Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and the Philippines.

In the northwest, Bikini Atoll’s largely undisturbed waters, used as a ship graveyard after World War II, are now a popular wreck dive site. Near Majuro Atoll, which holds the islands' capital and largest settlement, the coral reef at Kalalin Pass teems with marine life.
