NYC July 4th Fireworks, Viewed from a Plane

Posted by Paull Young | Posted in Life | Posted on 05-07-2011


Last night I flew in to Newark Airport from Texas and was lucky enough to view New York City’s 4th of July Fireworks out of the window of the plane on final descent.

Here’s a phone video that doesn’t quite do it justice:

Thank you to the state of New Jersey for providing an entertaining impromptu fireworks parade throughout our descent, and moreso to Manhattan for the big finale!

I’m just upset that the plane didn’t break into a big USA chant or rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.

i wondered what all the fireworks looked like from an airplane. how neat; thanks for posting!

This is pretty hilarious, Youngie – while watching the fireworks this year, I saw a couple planes and thought, “Wow, how cool would it be to be flying in right now with the fireworks below you?” Well, little did I know that I would find out, pretty awesome.

Very cool. How was Texas?
