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.
