Commercial pilot Jakub Vlk stashed a camera in the cockpit of his plane and captured each stage of takeoff, flight, and landing in lovely HD video. On Vimeo, he notes that the video covers the "past seven days of work 8x faster." Watching liftoff from runways in Prague, Nantes, and elsewhere is an absolutely thrilling sensation. Vlk posted the video to Reddit yesterday and it's quickly going viral.
