I was at the Millennium Dome in London a few nights ago (at night it's turned purple & looks amazing) and there were alot of a/c flying low to land a Heathrow. Anyway, I thought what a great veiw of London they must have.
So I want to know what the best sight/thing you've ever seen whilst flying is?

Mine's got to be the White Cliffs of Dover because (getting very sentimental here) as soon as I see them from the air I know I'm back home!

Cheers,
Jamie.

Mine would be a beautiful thunderstorm, at night, off in the distance. From my window, it looked like the airplane was completely surrounded by the storm, and I spent a long time just watching the lightning.

I agree, thunderstorms are cool especially at night. Although I do enjoy seeing sunsets and sunrises at 35,000 feet in the air. It is quite beautiful. It's is also neat to fly into MCO while it's dark, sometimes you can see all the disney stuff. ORD is also pretty cool at night.

My favorite is exactly the one you described about flying into LHR. I love flying over the themes (spelling?) inot LHR. You get great views of City airporrt, the dome, and all of the other sites of the city as you come in to land.
I was really glad when I flew to LHR for thanksgiving we flew in over the city. Every time I fly in like that it reminds me of when I was living in London.

Landing in any big city is always fun at night. I've seen Dallas and Chicago. I've also seen the white cliffs as mentioned above last May, which was cool because I'd never seen them before.

Flying into Sydney on a bright sunny day, with views of the city and the harbour.

Brings a tear to your eye.

My best?

Well landing at the Agatti airport (Laskshadweep Archipelago) in an Indian Airlines Dornier. We were barely a few hundred feet above the water, and the sea was like totally clear.

2nd place, landing at the local airport (PNQ) on Air Force day (we were on an A320). There were like a hundred fighters on the ground. Inclduing some weird looking beasts. Amazing!

The best thing I've seen in the air must have been on my last flight, when I saw them oxygen masks drop...and that wonderfull steep dive. Nice...

Definitely my best view from an a/c was aboard a BA 747-400 last July on my way to London from San Diego. We had just taken off from SAN, and it was dark out, but there was just enough twilight to see the outline of the landforms of the city. By then all of the streetlights had come on too, and it was a spectacular sight seeing the entire city lit up at dusk as we flew over downtown. I will remember that for a long time.

Mine would have to be a huge line of thunderstorm a few miles away from our plane over labrador at 38,000ft. So Beautiful!
