To some, being in an airplane, thousands of feet above the ground is pretty much a terrifying experience. I’ll be the first to admit that being aboard a plane comes with a set of understandable fears (especially if you have the misfortune of encountering turbulences).
However, there’s no denying that flying also comes with the opportunity to see some breathtaking views that you wouldn’t be able to see otherwise. And, when it comes to seeing incredible views from up in the clouds, pilots have the best seats in the, oh well, plane.
Santiago Borja Lopez, a pilot from a South American airline, decided to share the experience of being in the cockpit and being able to look at some incredible sights with others. The pilot began sharing pictures taken from inside the cockpit while up in the sky, and they will definitely take your breath away.
From incredible natural phenomenon like heavy rain or lighting strikes to beautiful clouds and cities that were all lighten up during the night, Lopez’s outstanding photos do an awesome job showing the world from a different perspective.
The photos he captures are truly magnificent. Here is a compilation of some of the best ones:
