LONDON HEATHROW APPROACH TIMELAPSE

by Miryam Muller in ,


I love this time lapse video of planes approaching London’s Heathrow Airport. It’s sped up 17 times faster than normal, and the result causes the planes to look like little toys bouncing on string.

The video shows just how short the distances between approaching planes at the airport are, but it also reveals the interesting effects of air currents on the descending aircrafts.
