We’ve seen a number of incredible videos of planes taking off over the past few months, from this Russian fighter jet taking off vertically to this incredible cockpit footage of an F-16 ascending 15,000 feet in just 20 seconds. But this video here is just a little bit different.
Leveraging YouTube’s support for 360-degree interactive videos, Swiss Airlines recently posted some an incredible interactive video which provides users with a cockpit view of what it’s like to takeoff, fly, and land an Airbus A320. The video embedded below is from a flight that took off in Zurich and landed in Geneva.
“Flight commander Luc Wolfensberger and First Officer Martin Radinger take you to a flight over Switzerland from Zurich to Geneva, the YouTube description reads. “Watch the line up, takeoff, approach and landing from inside the cockpit with 360° of freedom.”
Using the interactive controls on the video is extremely intuitive and provides a really cool way to see what it’s like to fly a commercial airliner from the perspective of a pilot.
