Time Lapse of Planes

Beautiful Time Lapses:
“Five hours of plane landing in 30 seconds” and “Landings at San Diego International”

As the holidays are getting closer many of us will fly “home” to our loved and close ones. When I was younger I used to be really afraid of flying, and every single trip was a long preparation. Which aircraft were I supposed to fly with, what were the accident rates, what are the actual odds of anything happening and so on.

Earlier today I found these two amazing time-lapse videos of planes, landing. What the most of us experience as smooth landings doesn’t look that smooth when they are time lapsed. Notice that the camera is still, and the planes are moving around, not the opposite, in the last one.

I think that these two clips would’ve been a big therapy back in those days, in the preparation of getting “home”.

The technique, with taking out the blue and use it as a “green screen”, seems btw really interesting.

I hope you have a great start of the week.
