When I first started flying I always wanted a window seat. Not because it is more comforatable, but because I wanted to look out of the window the entire flight. It just amazed me that I was thousands of feet above ground getting a view of the earth that no human had laid eyes on for 99% of mankind’s history. In reality what I am witnessing is a unique opportunity for all mankind. Now we just take it for granted, really. In the spirit of realizing the greatness of the views from a plane I figured I would post a few of the photos I managed to steal from above 10,000 feet.
