The Hidden Journeys website gives detailed information about popular flight paths for those who want to learn a bit more about the places and people that they are flying over.
While sometimes, one can be soaring so high that it is difficult to make out anything but clouds, there are times when an amazing landscape is visible thousands of feet below. The Royal Geographical Society and the Institute of British Geographers are the creators of the website, which allows travelers to gain valuable information about the locations that they cross over when flying from Point A to Point B.
The website offers detailed information about the history and physical makeup of several popular flight paths including a stint from London Heathrow to Johannesburg, South Africa, as well as a popular trip between New York City and Los Angeles in America.
They are also in the process of incorporating these interactive maps into planes to be viewed in real time.
