These incredible images were taken by commercial airline pilots and they show some of the most spectacular views these flyers get to enjoy on a daily basis.
While passengers only get a small window to peer through during their flight what the commercial airline pilots see up front is so much more spectacular. From sunrises to sunsets, thunderstorms to dust storms most pilots have seen it all and we are lucky enough for a few have shared their incredible views with us online.
Commercial planes are able to fly on autopilot so long haul flights can leave many pilots with nothing to do for hours at a time. A select few like to take out their camera and show off to the world the amazing views that they get to see while flying above the world.
The following photos were taken by Ecuador airline pilot Santiago Borja Lopez who loves taking snap shots of storms from the cockpit. Take a look and see which one is your favorite.

Commercial airline food might not be as bad as you think. The inside of a commercial aircraft is insanely dry and on top of that, the cabin is highly pressurized which tends to mess with our perception of taste. In fact the food flyers consume actually have extra salt so you can taste it.
Despite flying being one of the safest modes of transport around 80% of the worlds population are afraid of flying.
Even though there are hundreds of planes in the air at any given time only 5% of the world`s population has actually been on a plane.
Commercial planes rarely fly with a full tank of fuel. The planes are filled with enough fuel needed to reach its main destination plus its nearest alternate, and then another 45 minutes worth of reserve fuel on top of that. The heavy the plane the more fuel it uses so companies put the minimum in to save money.

The lifespan of a commercial airliner is measured by pressurization cycles it has undergone. Each time an aircraft is pressurized during a flight its fuselage is subjected to stress and so when there are certain metal fatigues and cracks starting to appear the airliner is taken out of service. Aircraft that are used on long haul flights experience fewer pressurization cycles and so can remain airworthy for over 20 years.
The emergency airmasks on a commercial plane are only designed to supply 12 minutes of continuous airflow which is just the amount of time needed for your commercial airline pilots to find a safe place to land.
