Quite nice indeed. The pleasure of 1000 feet vertical separation

Could never get that too.
But it's a great video. Lots of power in there.

Wow, fantastic footage! Thanks for sharing.
Must have been quite the view for both crews. Too bad there's not a video from the MD-11's point of view too...

Not to be a party pooper but should pilots be making videos when they are at the controls? Isn't this the same thing as working on unrelated things on a laptop?

Years ago I was riding the jump seat in the cockpit of a 767 from ZRH to JFK. A LH 747 passed underneath us and as he did the Ground Proximity Altimeter jumped for a few seconds. I always thought that was pretty cool...

Nice video...thanks.

One of my favorite books written by a pilot talks about how boring his flight from LA to Hawaii was and how much he couldn't wait to make is position report over the radio, so I see no problem with them taking a video. Pretty sure the pilots in both planes were letting the computers fly at that point. It was only a few minute video as well.

You must've been flying close to stall speed to get un unblurry picture of a cruising A340

1,000 feet of separation can be pretty unnerving (as a passenger) when the path of your plane actually intersects another...

On my last trip to Japan, out in the middle of nowhere over northern Canada, my JAL flight had another 777 pass directly above us at about a 75 degree angle of track. I was watching him come towards us with some concern. He flew directly overhead and it looked from my vantage point like he was almost close enough to clip our tail. Obviously must have been 1,000 feet above, but it can seem really close when another plane's coming fast like that.

The pilots aren't at the controls. Oh, yes, they are sitting in front of the controls, but I'd guess during this filming, they hadn't touched the controls since about 5,000 to 9,000 feet. Well, unless you consider entering a level change in the MCD.

It would appear to me that the operator of the video camera is sitting in a jumpseat aft of the flying pilots' seats.

They'll just say it's "proof of chemicals." They're all trolls. Technically they are "chemicals" (?) because the trails are artificial clouds, and the definition of a chemical is something "artificially prepared." Don't tell the its that though.

Just one question: Wake turbulence?

IIRC, wake turbulence is dangerous if you're directly behind another aircraft's flight path. The 748 is well below the MD-11, so I doubt the vertical span of the wake turbulence would reach them..

Scary as f*ck! I was on a transcon DL flight. Casually looked out the window to see a jet spewing contrails out... headed directly towards us. Passed below. The scariest part of it all was how fast it happened. From sighting to passing it was no more than 5 seconds.. and the other jet was *WAY* far out. By the time I told my seatmate we'd already passed the contrails. Initially frightening, but a very strange and surreal beauty.
