How time flies! This month marks two years since ground broke on Apple’s futuristic new “spaceship” campus, and — despite the odd hitch along the way — things are looking impressively together.

To show just how together the pieces all are, drone videographer Duncan Sinfield recently flew his DJI Inspire 1 drone over the building site to produce a stunning video of Apple’s forthcoming dream campus.

Check it out below. You won’t regret it.

By now, everyone is aware of the stats for Apple’s new campus — from the fact that it will house 13,000 Apple employees (the equivalent of 35 fully-filled Boeing 747s), to its impressive environmental credentials, to its $75 million gym for employees, and 1,000-seat underground theater. For the first time, however, we’re really starting to get a sense of what all of this will look like.

Recently we heard how the building has been designed, despite its giant size, to create serendipitous interactions between Apple employees.

The word that best sums it all up? “Wow!”
