Flying across the Atlantic

As I flew recently from New York to Toulouse (France) aboard an Airbus 380, I was surprised to discover that in front of your seat there is a screen showing the position of the plane on the runway.  We were number 15  for take off.  It is a cool feature.

You can also see on the screen the plane taking off and the surrounding landscape, although as you can tell from the picture it is difficult to take a photograph when the cabin light is turned off and the plane is shaking a bit.  By the time we left it was already night time.

The next morning my connecting flight was in Paris.¬† As the plane was flying to Toulouse I looked out of the window and I knew I was not¬† above the Midwest!¬† Look at the size of the fields!¬† It is more “patchworky”.

Stay tuned for more adventures…!
