HDNet covers Katrina aftermath

HDNet offered viewers an unprecedented high-definition view of the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina with a special episode of “HDNET World Report” Sept. 6.

"HDNet World Report Special: The Devastation On The Gulf Coast" brought viewers HD coverage of the rescues, tragedy and devastation from around the region.

Aerial television images of the immense destruction left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina from New Orleans and Biloxi, MS, were captured by Helinet Aviation Services.

The Federal Aviation Administration granted the company permission to provide aerial images from the areas affected by the hurricane and subsequently broken levies in New Orleans.

Among the networks to carry aerial footage from Helinet Aviation were CNN, FOX News, ABC, NBC and CBS.

On Aug. 29, Helinet provided the first aerial images in the wake of Hurricane Katrina from its Cineflex HD aerial camera system.
