Unbelievable Photos Of Air Traffic Around The World


The sight of a plane taking off from the airport is pretty impressive, but it’s not exactly new. The sight of hundreds of planes leaving the runway at the same time however is definitely something we’ve never experienced before, until now that is!
Take a look at this stunning series of “Airportraits” to see what we mean. They were taken by Mike Kelley, an LA-based architectural photographer who spent the last two years taking pictures of planes departing the tarmac at eighteen different airports around the world. Afterwards he compiled the images to create these stunning compositions that serve to remind us just how busy our skies are.
