A month ago we found an awesome video compiled from several Avianca Brazil Airbus A320 flights.

Today we came across a similar clip, shot from the cockpit of what appears to be a Ryanair Boeing 737. (The producer of the video hid the plane’s identity carefully, but there is a brief glimpse of a blue “R” on the lower, inner portion of a winglet.)

This one offers a better look at what the guys behind the wheel are doing and what their glass cockpit is telling them. The Airbus vid was had wider angles and more outside views.

And no, this will not resolve the unending debate between Airbus and Boeing fans over whose planes are better. Just enjoy the plane porn.
