This awesome 24-second time-lapse video, created by photographer and film professor  , captures every single airplane landing at San Diego International Airport on Black Friday, November 23,2012. The video was shot over a five hour period, from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm, but plays out in under half a minute, as though the planes arrived all at once like a noisy flock of big metal birds. It’s an amazing sight to behold.
