Have you ever found yourself on an airplane gazing out of the cabin window in wonder at the world thousands of feet below?
Hidden Journeys, one of the Society's public engagement projects, will enable you to explore the incredible places you can see from the air as you fly over them.
The Hidden Journeys website has a unique set of functions enabling the user to explore the people and places below several flight-paths at various altitudes.
The flight paths explore the amazing landscapes on routes from Bangkok to Sydney, Vancouver to Los Angeles, Madrid to Rio de Janeiro, and more.
Explore these flight paths with Hidden Journeys.
