Six Hours of Airplane Departures Condensed Into 32 Seconds

San Diego photographer and filmmaker Cy Kuckenbaker condensed six hours of San Diego International Airport air traffic departures into a short composite timelapse film that runs 32 seconds long. This was made as a follow-up to his previous short film, where he displays five hours of air traffic “landings” in under 30 Seconds. PetaPixel shares additional information from Cy on how he set up this time-lapse film.

In doing these two videos I’ve learned that our airport sees around 300 arrivals/departures per day, which amazes me since we only have a single runway airport in a city that’s not really a big hub.
