IT'S A WONDERFUL WORLD
The daily 10.00 am Cathay Pacific flight from New York to Hong Kong flies a great circle route in daylight . Up the east coast of the US and Canada over Greenland skirting the Arctic ice and then down over Russia , Mongolia and China and into Hong Kong . On the 1st October this year it was a cloudless day for the first 8 hours . The view from the window was extraordinary . This shot taken at 37000 ft shows the edge of Greenland . The aircraft flew for hours over total wilderness . Not a sign of human activity . It is indeed a wonderful world .And a big thank you Cathay Pacific for having such clean , scratch free windows .
