You’ll see the busy world below, with buildings, cars, people and trains almost as if it is a model city!

The flight then continues to the Forth Bridges. See the three bridges spanning across the shimmering river. The 1890 rail bridge stands pride of place with the 1960 road bridge and 2017 Queensferry Crossing up river.
