It’s no secret that pilots have the best views in the sky. They face forward, have a 180 degree view, and can darken the flight deck to take advantage of the illumination of the night sky. Swiss pilot Sales Wick took all that a step further with a mesmerizing time lapse video of his flight from Zurich to São Paulo.

Tracking LX92

While we know from the video that the flight was Swiss LX92, we don’t know the exact date of the flight. The flight track of LX92 for 29 March and 30 March both match the markers provided by Wick in the video. We’ve excerpted images from our playback to provide an approximation of the video’s flight path matched to the video time codes.
