Take Flight Over Lafayette County

See the county from the air.

It’s one thing to drive and see the beauty of Lafayette County. It’s quite another thing to see it from the air. We traveled across the Arkansas county looking for incredible scenery and our drone took flight over Lafayette County to capture some stunning footage.
