There is something so surreal about gliding over the clouds and cruising at 30,000 feet. The allure of airplanes as something otherworldly has faded in past years as it became just another form of transportation. And while flying isn’t nearly as glamorous as it used to be, there is always room for photography, and I don’t just mean a teenager with a Nikon. I mean real photography. These photos below are of the most impressive to ever come out of an airport, so scroll and be amazed.
A photographer must have taken up shop right outside of an airport, stakeout style. This photo is a one day compilation of every plane that took off. While visually stunning, you can really get a feel for how busy and awesome airports really are.
What better way to catch ’em all than with an airplane with Pikachu painted on the side? Whoever took this picture has got a great story to brag about at cocktail parties. Oh, you volunteered for two years in the Peace Corps? Well I’m the guy who took the Pikachu airplane picture…
There is nothing like getting engaged. There’s really nothing like getting engaged among vintage airplanes. Really stunning photography of two stunning people.
Who doesn’t love a good forced perspective photo? That’s right: no one. Above is the grandmaster of all things timing related. I bet his jokes are the bomb.
Okay, this one isn’t really legit photography, but have a heart! Funny cat pictures are taken to new heights (pun definitely intended) with pilot cat. Please note that the fasten seatbelt sign is on.
