From the Wright Brothers first flight in 1903, to the everyday jumbo jets that transport people all over the world, flying is pretty flipping cool. Once a thing only pterodactyls and birds could experience, now it’s a rare occasion to meet an American who has never been on an airplane, and those of us who are more adventurous even jump out of them! Whenever I’m flying from coast to coast I always think about how crazy it is that some people actually made that same trip by horse and buggy, like in Oregon Trail, then I start reminiscing about the wonderful pixelated computer games of my childhood, and next thing I know we’re preparing for landing.
To celebrate the miracle of aviation we searched Instagram for a collection of photos that will make you want to book your next flight. A very special thank you to all of our featured Instagrammers this week. Our theme for next week will be blown glass. If you’d like to see your photo featured on our site, capture your favorite blown glass art, upload it to Instagram, and tag it #blownglass @visualnews. Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for reading!
