THIS is the massive 2012 Olympics site like you’ve never seen it before.
The aerial shots of the stadium taking shape (pictured top) and the Olympics Village (above) were taken from a helicopter in the skies above East London to mark the progress of the work now ahead of schedule.
Construction is under way on all the big five’ venues of the Olympics Park—the stadium, aquatics centre, village, cycle velodrome and media centre.
The images have been released by the Olympics authority to coincide with the International Olympic Committee’s visit to East London.
