Seeing the World Through an Airplane Window

Whenever I fly I always ask for a window seat. Seeing the world from above gives you a different perspective on the world. Patterns emerge, nature shines and cities feel colossal. On Flickr there are many groups dedicated to photography from an airplane window. From the Airplane Window has a collection of over 15,000 images while Window Seat Please has amassed over 88,000 photos. Even a simple search for ‘airplane window’ nets about 60,000 results.

Below you can tour the world through 50 beautiful pictures shot through an airplane window. I opted for shots that included some part of the plane such as the wing for consistency. All credit to the amazing photographers for capturing the world and sharing it with others to enjoy!
