Bird’s eye view of Docklands

01 Feb 2011

Bird’s eye view of Docklands Image

Docklands News was treated to a bird’s eye view of our suburb on January 20, thanks to the generosity of our colleagues at Channel 7 News.

News director Steve Carey made the offer of a helicopter ride about a year ago and, given the beautiful weather, Docklands News took him up on the offer last month.

Editor Shane Scanlan and journalist Alison Kinkade enjoyed several laps of Docklands.

And it wasn’t a total indulgence, we got to bring our readers these amazing images of our wonderful precinct.

“Docklands looks amazing from up there.  And the striking thing is just how big it is.  The CBD is tiny by comparison,” Mr Scanlan said.

“It gives you a really good perspective on what a massive place it is going to be when all the gaps are filled in by 2020.”
