Intermission: Why You Should Fly Into LAX at Night

It's hard not to fall in love with L.A. after watching this gorgeous video shot from the cockpit of a plane landing in the city at night.


Good evening, passengers, we are now making our final descent into a dizzyingly-clear Los Angeles at twilight. You're watching a video of the SADDE Six Arrival, one of the arrival patterns for LAX that swings down from the north. If you'd prefer a more authentic cockpit experience, try watching the 14-minute real-time version and listening to an air traffic control channel like this. If this is what pilots get to see at the end of every workday, they must be the happiest people in the world. Good night, and thanks for flying.
