Whenever I fly back home to San Francisco, I crane my head from the plane to catch of glimpse of our gorgeous city from the skies. This video from Teton Gravity Research does one better with the above clip that captures parts of the coast and skyline from above. I especially love the second half of this cinematic montage, which offers scenes of San Francisco at night, making it seem like you're watching the opening of a blockbuster movie set in the city, like if Batman suddenly offered dramatic views of the The Bay Lights.
