Smithsonian Channel to Offer Aerial Glimpse of WV
The Smithsonian Channel original series "Aerial America" will be filming from the skies above West Virginia from May 16-20.
The series, which is shot from a helicopter equipped with an HD camera system, will be visiting West Virginia as part of one of the most expansive aerial television series ever produced.
Smithsonian Channel plans on filming each of the 50 states, providing rare glimpses of some of our nation's most treasured landmarks, all seen from above. From busy cityscapes to quiet landscapes, from historical and cultural landmarks to places far off the beaten path, producers say Aerial America offers a bird's eye view of the beauty and splendor that make up our country.
Residents of West Virginia can offer tips on where the Aerial America production team should be filming in the state by going to the Smithsonian Channel Facebook page or Twitter page.
So far, 26 states have been filmed. The West Virginia episode will premiere in late 2012.
