Five Hours of Airplane Landings Captured in Thirty Seconds

Inspired by this composite photo created by Ho-Yeol Ryu, photography and film professor Cy Kuckenbaker created this remarkable time-lapse capturing every landing at San Diego International Airport over a five hour period from 10:30am through 3pm. Kuckenbaker explains how his project came about and how it was created: "I moved to a new neighborhood in San Diego a little over a year ago that put me close to the San Diego Int. Airport. Since then I have become increasingly interested in the rhythms of the airport and the airplanes themselves. San Diego has an unusual flight path that brings the planes in low right over the center of the city and they have to drop rapidly behind a hill to make the runway. When I saw a composite still image on PetaPixel of every airplane that took off in a day from a European airport I started to wonder if I could do something similar with video.
