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

October 28, 2012

Christopher Jobson

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)

In this unbelievable new video, Swiss pilot Yves Rossy (previously) is seen soaring above the Alps strapped to his one-of-a-kind jet-propelled wing craft. It’s incredible to me that after well over a century of manned flight, we continue to make technological advances like this. My son after seeing this: “Dad, next time is it our turn?” Rossy was filmed by aerial camera operator Evert Cloetens. (via devour)

Just discovered the work of German photographer Bernd Edgar Wichmann. His portfolio is chalk-full of accomplished commercial work for dozens of brands, agencies, and magazines, but it’s his landscape work shown above that’s truly inspiring to me. It’s as if his camera is hovering in the sky above the images he shoots. (via beware)

Clouds photographed 4 miles up through open airplane doors

February 24, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Photographer Rüdiger Nehmzow captured these photos of clouds four miles above the Earth through open airplane doors. The video does a pretty good job of showing how they did it, maybe skip ahead to 2:30 or so just before they take off. More of his incredible work here.
