Aerial Photos From Around the World

Aerial photos offer a new perspective, another way to see the world around us. How about Niagara Falls from the air?  What does Venice or Bern look like to a pilot or a bird? Imagine the Tulip Fields of The Netherlands as if you are a sea gull, gliding in from the ocean waves 120 feet above the ground.

Your Pilot

Yes, This is your pilot.  You're sitting back in your seat, looking at all the awesome views out your window. After visiting Barcelona, Bern, and Dubrovnik, your head is filled with beautiful aerial photo views of the world.

But wait, this is more like that old episode of the Twilight Zone. Bob Wilson, paranoid, seeing a creature on the wing of his aircraft, taking the airplane apart. Are you now living your own "Nightmare at 20,000 feet"? No. No!
