For some people, flying is terrifying. They don’t like heights or confined spaces, so it freaks them out. I have some of those people in my family, and they always make sure to sit in the aisles. This way they have as much room as possible and don’t have to look out the window. But if you don’t look out the window, you miss some really cool stuff!!
I have seen some amazing things out of my plane window—the New York City Skyline all lit up at night, the Grand Canyon, for example. On the way to Las Vegas, I once saw a string of wind turbines on the edge of a series of cliffs. I really regret not having a camera on that trip, because that sight was amazing. There have been a few trips, though, where I have had my camera. Vacations, mostly. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from flights to Hawaii and Alaska.
Readers, what is your favorite sight from an airplane window? Have you been lucky enough to get a picture?
