Air Tahiti Nui, the carrier of French Polynesia, released a behind-the-scenes time-lapse video of flight operations from baggage loading to landing. The carrier has been flying from the U.S and Europe to Tahiti for 15 years.
The video, according to News Australia, was created by Matthieu Courtois, a 32-year-old technical engineer from Tahiti who has been working for the airline since 2007, with the help of pilot Ludovic Allain.
Using a go-pro, Courtois spent a month filming and editing the video, which follows the airline's A340 planes as they fly from Auckland to Paris via Papeete (French Polynesia) and Los Angeles, the site said.
The result is a rare look at what goes on behind the scenes, in the cockpit and in the air. And of course, the gorgeous views of Tahiti from the air.
