The Skies are Getting Very Congested: VIDEO


Here's a cool time-lapse of all landings at San Diego International Airport on Black Friday Nov 23, 2012 between 1030 am and 300 pm fused into a 25-second clip. Enjoy!

  1. That would be a great screen saver. OMG am I dating myself? Do people still use screen savers?

  3. I live about 3 blocks from where this video was taken. Amazing video, but those planes fly so damn close to the buildings when they're coming in for a landing. After living in NYC during Sept. 11 it's still pretty freaky to see them less than 25 feet above my head.

  5. That bank of clouds hardly moved in 4 1/2 hours?

  6. Agree with Sean. It has to be fake - the clouds are "stuck" while the planes move. Time-lapse photos of clouds show them moving and "boiling". See for example:
    Good try though.

  7. That's because this isn't a true time-lapse video. If this was an actual time-lapse video, you'd only see one plane at a time.... The creator used whatever clip of clouds they wanted to, and superimposed each video of each plane on top of it.

  8. @Jay, some people still can't grasp technology.

  9. Go to the youtube explanation and follow the link to the creators web site. He explains it is a composite .... this has nothing to do with real time-lapse. Towleroad mischaracterizes it. He gives the illusion of time passing.

  11. Seemed like a bunch of flying fish!

  12. @Mike: Don't worry. Your comment brought back memories of drifting through space - or whatever it was.
