Traveling by plane can be impressive and make you dream. The flightlapse, or flying timelapse, is actually a timelapse made of images from the air. This can be from an airplane, from a hang glider, but also from many other means of transport.
When the timelapse is combined with the journey, the words are not enough to describe the images … then watch the videos …
5. 16 time zones in 83 seconds: from Tokyo to Frankfurt
Let’s take off again from Tokyo but this time with a Boeing 747 for an 83-second flight to “The City by the Bay”, San Francisco. The program includes a splendid blue sky with an immersion in the heart of the cloudy cumulonimbus and a blazing sunrise.
Ready for the fastest flight you’ve ever done?

4. The ballet of planes landing at London Heathrow
Certainly the most fun, though not exactly a flightlapse, but rather an inverted flightlapse: a timelapse of planes landing at Heathrow airport from London ground. This ballet of planes looks like a real beehive with its little bees flying and dabbling sometimes in the air.
There is a lot of wind, isn’t it? 😜

1. Flying from the ESA space station or the Earth as you’ve never seen it
Surely one of the most beautiful and unique timelapses you will have the opportunity to see: that of the Earth from the ESA space station. The ozone layer appears in the colors of the Northern Lights where the lights of the cities are mixed, punctuated by the deep blue of the oceans and the sharp white clouds … An incredible flight time lapse for 2 months with the stars in the background. Admittedly, it is not really a plane, but the term flight lapse remains adapted, especially since space 🙂
