This has been done many times before I guess, but if you've got 3 minutes to waste here's a quick video of Parys from the air:

https://vimeo.com/282882990

It was done over one 15 minute flight, so no time to get any low level / detail sequences or footage of further flung areas.

Wonderful film, brings back memories of a visit in 2007. The main hole was dry then. Do you remember the visit by Fred Dibnah on his traction engine? Think this was filmed in 2004

Sadly this was on his tour of the British Isles completed shortly before he died of cancer. Many links on Youtube -Episode 10 - starts at 7mins 36 sec, although everything worth watching.
