For anyone who has been on a South African Airways flight – sitting way back in economy like many of us maybe – here’s a glimpse of what it’s like to be in the cockpit during take-off. This flight was a recent one from Johannesburg to Perth, Australia, on the A340-300.

“Our long history of filming South African Airways started more than 15 years ago with the filming of the Airbus A300B4!” said the site Justplanes. “Now in 2016 we’re delighted to bring you our 5th SAA program covering the South Indian Ocean route from Africa to Australia for the 1st time into Perth on the A340-300!”

Watch the takeoff and great view of Joburg at night:
