Drone Footage Of Water Pouring Into Lake Spillway In California

February 22, 2017


These are two drone footage videos of water pouring into the Glory Hole spillway in Lake Berryassa in Napa, California after recent heavy rains. The spillway is capable of draining 48,400 cubic feet of water per second into Putah Creek at the base of the Monticello Dam. Engineering, isn't it amazing? "You aren't going to say anything about glory holes and putas?" No I am not, I'm taking the high road today. And not just because I'm pretty sure I suffered a mild stroke last night, but I do believe God is trying to tell me something, and that something is get your shit together before I lightning bolt you and you don't have time to seek atonement for all your sins. And boy do I have a list of sins to make up for. You know how every year Santa makes a naughty and nice list? Imagine the length of both lists combined. Then imagine every year's list since Santa began Santa-ing all compiled into a single volume. Double that and you've got yourself an idea of what I'm dealing with.

Keep going for the videos, the second of which starts at 1,000 feet then descends into the spillway and almost gets taken by the water.

Thanks to Ty, who agrees it's high time somebody go down that hole in a barrel.

  • That reminded me of someone I know.
    I don't know why anyone would want to bleach their anus.

    why the fuck do they have to play the shitty music over the video? I want to hear the damn thing too

    LOL That glory hole is obviously CGI ;) Serious though, that thing looks so unrealistic, if the drone is close enough it looks like an old music visualizer.

    They couldn't have picked a more generic song for that first one.

    Sad part is that all drones must get shot down. And we'll lose cool vids like this one.

  • GeneralDisorder

    They're classified as aircraft by the FAA so doing anything physical to a drone is a federal offense.

    And interfering with drone radio signals would violate FCC rules and FAA rules. So unless you're actually law enforcement or working for some agency with big pockets and lawyers on staff you should avoid tampering with drone flight.

    Personally I'd like to see more normal fixed-wing surveillance drones. Quadcopters are cool and all but with the right configuration you could fly fixed wing in pretty serious winds. And you can have a higher ceiling.

    A micro-scale SR-71 with accurately scaled surveillance systems could be built by a hobbyist in a couple days.

    Of course if you wanted to perfectly scale everything you're gonna have a hard time making yourself a functioning turbo-ramjet in RC scale. I don't think ramjets even work until you hit Mach 2.

    Until rules and regs about them get a hell of a lot better, it's boom boom baby!

  • GeneralDisorder

    Alright. Let us know what prison you end up in so we can drone-drop you some contraband.
