Living in Docklands, I can lie in bed and watch planes going to/from City Airport, and if working in the living room watch planes heading towards Heathrow. So, I was quite interested to see that the chaps (and chapesses) over at Digital Urban have set up a time lapse camera to capture plane movements over London at night.
Comprised of 1700 photographs taken 10 seconds apart it is possible to identify City Airport (on the left) and the flightpath to Heathrow. Its not going to win any photography awards but by simply using a low cost webcam mounted inside a waterproof torch it is possible to get some interesting views of the city and the skyline.
