    This shot is taken seconds before landing. You can see the lights flashing by trough the windows. At this point the two pilots are working together like a well oiled machine. One flying the airplane and the other cross-checking all parameters.

    A front row seat to how air travel works. I love how the cockpit windows gives us a view of the lights from the runaway as the plane zooms overhead. The different panels and screens in front of the pilots add some nice details to this image and I found myself studying everything that was going on. Thanks for giving us this perspective, Martijn.
