I’m not quite sure why I find this video so intriguing, but I do. It’s a really simple idea, you film the planes approaching London Heathrow Airport in time-lapse and they turn into flying toys:

As someone who’s dexterity stretches just about as far as being able to type with more than one finger I’m always amazed at other peoples ability and skills.

The video quality isn’t great but the spectacle is amazing:
