This is something that you need to be careful with-some airlines don`t mind people taking photos on board,but some are very strict about not allowing it.
 
Take off and landing shots seem to be the main bone of contention,as they sometimes consider a camera an electronic device,and therefore don`t allow their use during these phases.
Certainly I could understand if it was a cameraphone being used.
 
I took some video on a flight 5/2/2011 coming back from Rome to BFS over the Alps with Aer Lingus,but I asked first and was told it was OK.
 
Might upload it here if I can figure out how do it and if it`s any good  :-\

Thought I would add a few of my favourite shots.  :)

1) Heathrow 
2) Delta 767 taken over the English Channel
3) Crossing 22R at JFK as Cargolux 747 lines up
4) Lower Manhattan as the sun sets, taken en route IAD - LHR

When was the Sea World one taken? I was there many years ago (1993) and it certainly didn't look like that, from what I can remember - alot of new additions by the look of it :)

Taken within the last couple of years from a (Robinson?) helicopter. They have added coasters etc, in recent years.

Cheers Stevie.

A few from our trip to Rome in Feb-returning over the French Alps,and what I think is Chambery Airport.
Taken with a small compact digital so not best quality.

Also a pic of a weird cloud we saw in Rome.

Now Steve, that's just showing off!  ;D
 
I've been trying some long exposure shots during flights at night, I have thought up of a little plan to get such shots in the future, but it involves buying several lens hoods and cutting them up  ;D
