A moment of zen

Keeping the dream alive. After being 'grounded' for six months and longing for my next TPAC, I could watch this all day. Kudos to the United marketing team for such a crisp nod to the friendly skies.

Awesome. Agree it is too short. Reminds me of the pre-boarding videos of the old UA on the large screens.

The video should have lasted the entire duration of Rhapsody in Blue.

Yes it is. The beginning of the clip starts with Santa Rosa island, then it pans around the aircraft with San Miguel Island in the backdrop.

Both islands are in Channel Islands National Park, just south of Santa Barbara.

See comparisons between video and Google Maps:

Cool! I figured someone would be on this right away! One of my habits is watching the ground to keep track of where I am, but haven't flown that direction much. Thanks!
