Video of the Day January 29, 2013
Five Hours Of Planes Taking Off In 32 Seconds

The above video was done by a photography and film professor named Cy Kuckenbaker from San Diego, California.

To make it, he went to San Diego International Airport one day last December and captured five hours of takeoffs.

He then put all the planes into one 32-second timelapse. The result is pretty mesmerizing and gives you a sense of just how busy the airport is.

He calls it 'Departures From San Diego'.

In November of last year, Kuckenbaker created '5 Hours Of Airplane Landings In 32 Seconds'. It has been viewed more than 2.6 million times.

Check it out below.

He also makes documentaries and short films, and has a photography portfolio. You can check out his website at
