Photo of the day: Everything looks better from the top

2014-04-17 14:32
Cape Town - Have you ever noticed how neat and tidy everything looks from above, when you're sitting peering out of a plane's window seat?

It's almost as though, all the chaos of the world melts away as soon as you leave the tarmac. 

Last year we asked our readers to send us their favourite pics snapped from the window seat, and earlier this week we featured some photos taken by pilots from out of the cockpit.

Inspired by these, reader Erik Schaum, sent us a selection of his own cockpit pics taken while stationed in Senegal for a South African company called CemAir (Pty) Ltd. 

We really liked this one of Dakar, Senegal.
