Soaring across the beautiful city of Pittsburgh makes the aviation experience worth it.

Dustin McGrew took this stunning photo of Pittsburgh from a Southwest aircraft, showcasing the city’s beauty in one glance. Acrisure Stadium, where the Steelers play, is located next to the three bridges in the bottom-right of the photo. This stunning photo captures downtown Pittsburgh as well as the surrounding neighborhoods, with the landscape beyond partly shrouded by clouds.

Our second stunning photo this week was taken by Charlotte Siobhán. The aircraft silhouette beautifully complements a magnificent sunset. Regardless of the time of day, aviation presents spectacular views, especially during the golden hour.

This well-crafted photo encourages people to enjoy the beauty and thrill of flying from a unique perspective.

Thank you, Dustin and Charlotte, for capturing these beautiful photos!
