Time-lapse videos recall historic landing

Screen Shot 2014-01-23 at 12.06.06Look back to a key moment in St Helena’s airport project by watching two time-lapse videos of the NP Glory 4 becoming the first ocean-going ship ever to dock on the island, in July 2012.

The first, by Scott Stander, shows the vessel being manoeuvred into position, bow-first, and the first construction vehicles being unloaded: all condensed into 53 seconds. Watch it here.

The second, much-longer video, shot by an unnamed Saint, shows the various movements of vehicles and workers. See it here.

Another video by the same Saint producer shows one of the biggest explosions on the airport construction site on Prosperous Bay Plain. See it here.
