London Heathrow Approach Time-lapse Turns Jumbo Jets into Floating Toys

London Heathrow Approach Time lapse Turns Jumbo Jets into Floating Toys timelapse London flying airplanes

This short clip from the Cargospotter aviation video channel shows a few dozen planes as they queue up for approach at London’s Heathrow airport. At 17x normal speed the wind currents seem to bounce the planes like small toys suspended from invisible strings and the perpetually moving clouds create the illusion of a constantly panning camera. In an internet flooded with time-lapse videos this is definitely a gem. (via metafilter)
