New Zealand is one of the countries featured in a new film collaboration between Emirates and Boeing.

New Zealand's stunning landscapes are highlighted in a new series of films that shows the "View From Above" at a variety of locations around the globe.

The result of a partnership between Emirates and Boeing, the project is one of the largest aerial filming projects ever conducted using drones.

Filming took place in 18 destinations over five continents, including Emirates' homebase in Dubai and in Seattle, where Boeing Commercial Airplanes is based.

New Zealand is also featured, with impressive soaring views across Queenstown, Mt Cook and Milford Sound that show off the country from the drones' perspective.

Other films showcase the rice fields of Vietnam, go in between mountain crevices in Norway and fly over the Maracana Stadium in Rio.

Thanks to the aerial capabilities of drones, the team behind the project could produce previously unseen footage from a wide range of perspectives and tight spots.

Over 13 qualified drone pilots from around the world contributed to the project.

To view the films, head to the View From Above site and spin the globe until you find the destination that takes your fancy.
