Amazing time-lapse video shows 'flock of aeroplanes' landing

If you think Britain's skies has a lot of air traffic you ain't seen nothing yet.

This video appears to show dozens of commercial aeroplanes landing in the space of 25 seconds at San Diego International Airport.

The video is in fact the work of photography and film professor Cy Kuckenbaker and uses clever time-lapse techniques to edit down five hours of footage - making the planes look more like a flock of birds descending.

In an interview with PetaPixel, Kuckenbaker said: "I moved to a new neighborhood in San Diego a little over a year ago that put me close to the San Diego International Airport.

"Since then I have become increasingly interested in the rhythms of the airport and the airplanes themselves."
