Cool Travel/Aviation Videos Thread

This thread is to post cool travel and aviation videos. There are so many great travel and aviation videos out there, but not all of them deserve their own thread. I've posted two in the past that I felt did deserve their own thread and I'll start with those and several additional ones. If this thread takes off, I'll keep OP updated with a categorized listing of the best vids.

I'll also give a shout-out to the Boeing YouTube channel as they have tons of great aviation vids. One of my favorites is listed above.

I really like that Brian Regan video. Something we can all relate to! Hilarious.

Great time lapse of pilot-perspective flying: http://www.petapixel.com/2012/09/18/...irplane-pilot/

Best line in PetaPixel's writeup? "Even if you’re a diamond status frequent flier, seeing a straight-on view of the plane passing through clouds is completely different than what you see when staring out the small passenger windows." But I am a Diamond guest... so me and my giraffe should be allowed to ride in the cockpit... :-D

As a high school lacrosse team was waiting to board a flight to a Summer tournament, one athlete took it upon himself to sneak into the pre-board group for "young passengers". He thought he had beaten the system, but his coaches saw the whole thing go down. One hastily written speech and a nice bit of cooperation from the crew of Southwest Airlines Flight 592 later, this video was born.

Finally, here's a great time lapse of Aurora Borealis while flying: http://www.petapixel.com/2011/04/08/...-sf-and-paris/

London Heathrow Approach Time-Lapse B747, A340, B777 - a great video that shows these jumbos bobbing around like toy planes in a storm (you don't realize how much they move around until you speed it up!) via PetaPixel

Ok, this is a bit off-topic, but it's a hilarious retro look into how affinity/loyalty programs developed in the US: Raleigh Cigarettes Coupon Commercials

The BBC offers an indepth look at a group of FTers with their own website/group FirstToFly.net as they ride the last scheduled SQ 744 SIN-HKG-SIN.

A time-lapse/composite video of five hours worth of plane landings at SAN last Black Friday compressed into 30 seconds. Very cool.

This is a great time-lapse of planes landing at PHX, made by the above-quoted FT'er.
