Oh the things you can see out of your window

People are suddenly getting very interested in the views outside of their aircraft window. (Personally, I blame Boeing for dropping eye-catching winglets for “blended” winglets.)

Buzz Feed has selected 100 incredible views from aircraft windows. A passenger on an Air France flight from San Fransisco to Paris snapped 2,459 photos during the flight and put them together in a two minute video, below.

The views from both are great, but have you ever found yourself on a flight wondering what’s below you? Well if you happen to be on a wifi-enabled flight, MondoWindow will tell you what you are overflying.

The system uses tracking information to calculate where you are and then display your aircraft on a Google map with pins indicating Wikipedia entries on nearby sights or geo-tagged Flickr photos. Try it out here on your next flight.
