Arriving at Helsinki-Vantaa airport - Cockpit view

This is the view that pilots and aircrews are able to see when they are approaching the Helsinki-Vantaa airport.

I have arrived many times to Helsinki by plane, but I have, naturally, never been able to see the landing from this point of view.

Actually this video is quite calming; the approach and landing in a good weather, like in this video, seems to be "easy". For me, it seems to be more nerve wrecking to sit in the back of the plane, just trusting the pilot to land the plane safely, than actually landing the plane.  (Of course I am not able to land a plane, and I know that pilots are trained professionals... :) )

This video shows that in a good weather, the landing process is almost soothing experience. I think I will be more relaxed next time when I am taking a trip by a plane.

Talented Finnish YouTube personality

Have you seen the video where a Finnish girl talks different languages, but the words are gibberish? Well I have embedded it here for your convenience.

The girl in the video is extremely talented (and pretty) Sara, who became an internet celebrity in only few days. Her video (embedded in this post) gathered 1 million views in one day only, and just after three days the video had over 3 million views. Currently the number of views is 8,803,519 and rising...

Sara works as a cashier in a small town supermarket and is totally overwhelmed from the sudden attention she has got. She has been contacted from all over the world and she has received job offers, interview requests (for example Ellen DeGeneres has been shown some interest) etc. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has posted about her video in his Facebook wall. She has also already appeared in Finnish TV, just 10 days after her video went viral.

Check out also her other videos!

Breathtaking time lapse video from northern Finland

Finnish photographer Henri Luoma has made a breathtaking time lapse video from the northern Finland. There is no other video that displays the cold full moon winter nights, starry sky and Northern Lights as beautifully as this video.

Congratulations to Henri for making such an amazing video! I am eager to see more of his time lapse videos in the future.

Note: The video is shot and uploaded to YouTube in 1080 HD, so you might want to select the best quality for this video masterpiece.
