Two flying videos

Two flying video - one while going to Hong Kong and other one is while taking off from Hong Kong.

In the first video I am flying over Fuji on day before Christmas. It was clear weather day and Fuji was without cloud cover. Since airplane was about 9 km high there is about 6 kmm distance between Fuji top and airplane.

Second video is while taking off from Hong Kong airport. There was thick fog in the morning and I thought that all flights will be canceled. To my surprise our flight was in time.

How pilot can take off because fog was so thick that at times it was impossible to see even wing tips. Not a time for even driving car on the road. I don't think pilot can see that center line on the runway to steer airplane. Luckily flight was eventful.

I mean I am not in that much hurry. I would have prefered for fog to clear before traveling further.
