We’ve all probably gazed out the window during a flight from our seat some point in our lives. And without going to flight school, that tiny, often obstructed sideview is the best we’re ever going to get.
Thankfully, ANA has made the front seat experience available to just about anyone with this timelapse video shot from the cockpit. The minute-long short follows a flight between Haneda (HND) and Kumamoto (KMJ), Japan from takeoff to landing. Nothing insane happens during the flight such as a lightning strike or high winds, but a boring flight is a safe flight! The coolest thing about this video is watching the clouds zip by from the best seat onboard and marveling at the miracle of flight while doing so. Check out the video, below:
