Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

These days, your first glimpse of a new destination would probably be out of the airplane window—on Flickr, photographers have started communities that celebrate this special perspective of a place from up above.

Thousands of pictures taken from airplane windows are gathered on groups like From The Airplane Window and Window Seat Please.

Often catching the airplane’s wing within their frames, these aerial shots allow viewers to look upon even familiar places through new eyes—whether it is the peaks of city skyscrapers or mountain ranges, such images generates a sense of spectacular grandeur.

Perhaps, you should a window seat the next time you travel by air?
