14 захватывающих дух фотографий из кабины пилота Боинга 747

Голландец Кристиан ван Хейст — пилот грузового самолета Боинг 747-8. Ему 34 года и за время работы он провел в воздухе больше 8000 часов.

Кристиан путешествует по всему миру, отлично управляется с самолетом, а еще ведет блог и совершенно фантастический инстаграм. Туда он выкладывает фотографии, сделанные на высоте 11 000 метров из кабины своего самолета. В его камеру попадают ослепительные восходы, северные сияния, молнии и пейзажи удивительной красоты. Likeyou выбрал самые захватывающие снимки.

 

Night flight over a cloud-covered Great Britain last week. The bright light bulb ahead is the city of London, with the cites of Oxford and Aylesbury passing underneath, while Cambridge is in the far left corner. Although the light pollution from the cities below blinds out our view of the skies above slightly, we are still lucky to see 3 satellites passing overhead, and even a pair that seems to be flying in formation. Its the first time I ever see this and a little investigation showed me that there are a couple of ‘binary’ satellite couples flying in relatively close formation of each other. I could not find any information in the regular apps or websites that allow tracking of those objects, but my guess is that this is the double NOSS (Naval Ocean Surveillance System) satellites that happened to cross overhead in their 90-minute trip around the world. This twin set of satellites is being tracked often by amateurs and enthousiasts world wide. For those that are interested or can provide more information; shot was taken December 25th at 0410UTC. 14mm, f/2.8, 10 sec, ISO5000 #london #night #nightshot #nightsky #sky #satellite #space #flight #flying #avgeek #aviation #aviationlovers #instaaviation #instagramaviation #longexposure #nikon #d850

The Aral Sea, or what is left of it, as seen from above. Once, the Aral Sea was once one of the largest lakes in the world with an area of roughly 70.000 km2 and was home to a large population that was depending on its fish and freshwater. Located in Central Asia, on the border with Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, the lake was fed by rivers coming from the high mountains from the Himalaya mountains. Since the 1960’s, the Soviet government diverted the rivers that were feeding the lake, causing it to shrink at an alarming rate ever since. The disappearance of the lake did not only affect the local economy that was largely depending on the wildlife in and around the lake, but also the health of all of those that were living there because of an acute shortage of fresh water and heavily polluted remnants of what used to be a huge lake. Here and there in the dry desert, ships and abandoned villages and harbors can be found that serve no purpose anymore. The exposed dry lakebed is causing frequent dust storms, influencing the entire climate in the region. Fortunately, attempts are being made to restore large parts of the Aral Sea, but with no certain outcome. Nonetheless, its unique blue colours are beautifully contrasting with the salt plains and are a delight to see from high above. #aralsea #aral #kazakhstan #landscape #world #worldfromabove #aerial #lake #water #sky #environment #landscapephotography #instagood #instadaily #photodaily #photoaday #photography #photo #photoart #jpcvanheijst #nikon #d800

Прекрасный закат над Гренландией. Ван Хейст пишет, что восходы и закаты на большой высоте могут ослеплять до боли в глазах, бывают очень яркими и интенсивными. Таких закатов не увидеть на земле

Однажды где-то между Южной Америкой и Африкой Кристиан пролетел сквозь «огромный грозовой фронт»

 

St Elmo’s fire. Somewhere over the Atlantic between South-America and Africa we encountered a huge front of active thunderstorms. Flying in thick clouds with zero visibility, we had to rely on our weather-radar to get a clear image of the weather ahead. It was obvious that there was no way to fly all around this squall line of entangled thunderstorms that stretched across our route for hundreds of miles to either side. Coming closer, the radar provided us with a more detailed image of the interior of the clouds ahead, enabling us to plan a route through this maze of violent weather. This time though, we immediately understood that we won’t get away with a smooth passage. The storms had almost grown together into one, forcing us to find the ‘least’ violent spot to fly through. Our long range HF-radio was already rendered completely useless with the nearby storms that charge the atmosphere and our airplane, thereby blocking all signals to and from the outside….

В инстаграме пилота еще много красивых снимков со всего мира — Монголии, Канады, Пакистана. Вот несколько из них:

 

Its not often that the so called Zodiacal light is that clearly visible! Zodiacal light is a faint glow that is sometimes seen at twilight when the sunlight is scattered in the interplanetary dust between the sun and the earth. On top of that, the International Space Station (ISS) made her third visible pass during our night flight, seen here as a bright trail of light as it reflects the sunlight from over the horizon. The green glow on the right is known as earth glow, not to be confused with aurora (or Northern Lights). Its actually a faint glow that is being produced by the oxygen in our own atmosphere and not a side effect of the sunlight or radiation. Sometimes visible with the naked eye, but you’ll to find a place with a little light pollution as possible. The joys of night flights. #zodiacal #night #nightflight #sunrise #space #iss #internationalspacestation #stars #earth #nature #earthglow #avgeek #aviation #pilotview #pilotlife #longexposure #photo #photography #instagood #instaphoto #instaspace #phootaday #photodaily #dailypic #nikon #longexposure_shots

Full moon over the Pacific Ocean. A constantly changing landscape of clouds and shadows complement the reliable and familiar stars above. When we dim the lights in the cockpit during such flights, I often move my seat forward and lean over the glareshield to enjoy those views from behind that curved cockpit window. With the nearest diversion airport at least a thousand km/miles away and far away from routes where passenger airliners would fly, its definitely a view that is reserved for just us. #moon #moonlight #pacificocean #ocean #view #landscape #night #nightflight #star #stars #clouds #cloud #cloudporn #weather #weatherphoto #pilotlife #aerial #aerialphotography #instaweather #avgeek #earth #nature #aviation #instagood #instadaily #dailypic

Man-made rainbows. Every now and then all the conditions are just right for the most amazing shots from the cockpit. This time, the sun was straight ahead in the right angle, another Airbus A340 passed straight over us and all the specific conditions in the atmosphere were just right for a thick contrail. All those things combined resulted in a contrail that showed all the colours of the rainbow for a few seconds. By now I can already predict what kind of personal messages I’m receiving after posting certain photos so to prevent a lot of angry messages; this photo is not ‘photoshopped’ or fake, its merely (severely) under exposed and cropped out. On top of that, I had to remove some very annoying sun glare from the thick windows. And yes, the colours were definitely visible with the naked eye. #boeing #340 #a340 #airbus #contrail #sky #flying #flight #aviation #avgeek #aviationgeek #instagramaviation #instaaviation #contrail #rainbow #instagood #instadaily #instapic #photography #photoaday #photoart #piloteye #pilotlife #colors #colours #jpcvanheijst #nikon #d800

While most people close their cabin windows while flying, they miss out on all the beauty that unfolds outside while there is so much to see if you have an eye for it. A nearly full moon illuminates the clouds below, a long band of northern lights glow in the distance and the Big Dipper (Ursa Major) is showing herself among the countless of stars that twinkle above. Made me think of the song ‘The Passenger’ from Iggy Pop. I am the passenger and I ride and I ride I ride through the city’s backsides I see the stars come out of the sky Yeah, the bright and hollow sky You know it looks so good tonight I am the passenger I stay under glass I look through my window so bright I see the stars come out tonight I see the bright and hollow sky Over the city’s ripped backsides And everything looks good tonight #aurora #northernlights #auroraborealis #auroras #flight #flying #window #view #sky #night #nights #skyporn #flyinghigh #aviation #aviationgeek #avgeek #aviation4u #aviationdaily #aviationlovers #stars #starrynight #starrynights #instagood #instaart #instanight #jpcvanheijst #longexposure #ursamajor #nikon @aviationdaily @instagramaviation @aviation.daily @aviation4u
