Airplane Time Lapse


My friend Jason sent me a link to this video this morning, and I thought it was pretty cool. I contacted the guy who made it, and he gave me permission to show it here. It’s a time lapse out a window during an airplane trip. Video by James Leng, All Rights Reserved.

Video Of The Airplane In The Hudson


CNN posted some videos from the Airbus plane that ditched into the Hudson the other day.

That easily saved me a half-hour of waiting, so much appreciated Dan. I’m sitting in the US departures area, eating what is probably the world’s worst egg mcmuffin. I almost fainted when I […]
