The view from the window seat of an Airbus A300 above the South China Sea, somewhere between the Philippines and Taiwan. Lucky to snag it. I haven’t got the chance to sit next to the window of a plane for a pretty long while…
It was the strangest flight (heck everything on this airline is bizarre), as the crew kept reiterating how all electronic devices should be shut throughout the flight, citing this as FAA regulation. Really… They’re clearly either out of loops with the latest developments with FAA or trying to go all archaic. It’s been more than 6 months since FAA gave the OK to use personal electronic devices throughout all phases of flight. I simply can’t believe this airline still thinks turning on your iPod (for example) is going to bring down the plane.
I whipped out my X-Pro1 and snapped for the last quarter of the flight as the light outside the window mellowed till the plane touched down. Loved every bit of the experience.
P.S.: I got the lovely blue hue with a bit of extra help from my circular polarizer. But of course the weather was perfect too that day.
