When flying in to London City Airport (as one used to do pretty much every week for almost a year), I always got a thrill from flying so close over the landmarks. Scarily, I even manged to spot our house (well, the building anyway) from a flight we were on going to Heathrow.
Here’s a cute video made in just 12 hours showing London from above. Ain’t it pretty? (And is that guy picking his nose a bit at 0:43?)
