Helicopter Views of the Impact of COVID-19 on the Lehigh Valley

Aerial footage documents the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Lehigh Valley. While hospitals, malls, and some retail parking lots are mostly empty, some businesses including grocery stores appear to have normal or near-normal activity. Passenger air travel shows the effects of canceled flights while ground and air cargo operations remain active.

The footage was captured by a helicopter piloted by Ted Rosenberger and filmed by his son Henry in April 2020. All footage is copyright 2020 by Vertivue Air Charters. Vertivue is based at Allentown’s Queen City Airport.
