Pilot Takes iPhone Time-Lapse Video of Plane Landing
A pilot has graciously created a time-lapse video on his iPhone showing us an airplane landing at London’s Heathrow airport. The video gives us a glimpse into what a pilot sees just moments before landing, during landing and after. Check out the video embedded below.

The short 25-seconds video was posted on Twitter by @theplayer_pilot, showing the plane approaching runway 27R. “Heathrow is a very busy airport but is straightforward enough, there are no mountains or anything too tricky, but we are always prepared for anything,” the unnamed pilot, who flies to Heathrow around four or five times a month, told GetWestLondon.
He continued, “Flying is amazing, I feel privileged to be a pilot and see the things I do, as pilots we have views of the world only really we get to see. We get to see sunrises and sunsets all over the world and on some night flights at Heathrow it doesn’t even get dark!”
