I was on a commercial flight into the Austin airport last night, and the southbound approach provides a view of the Tesla factory.

This Bigfoot-quality photo shows the illuminated windows on the horizon, with their distinctive shapes clearly visible to the naked eye. This was from the left side of the aircraft, facing east. This was about 30 seconds before landing!

The view is of this side of the building, but from a little farther away lol.

So if you’re flying into AUS, grab a window seat on the left!

Plane full of CT reservists picking up their trucks on the same day. Coming in for a landing, all passengers shift from right to left tilting the plane.

Pilot: SHHhhhiii…. What just happened!

The pilot makes a correction, a few seconds later, everybody gets back in their seats, causing the aircraft to list the other way. Pilot: What the h3ck is going on now!?

This is what the seat-belt sign is for, people.

Also, you can't get your truck if you've been hauled off for a felony (which not following the stewards' orders is).

I know, I know, it was a joke. But still!

So I took another shot at getting video from the air, but in the daytime. The signature windows are clearly visible. To show just how close this is to the airport, you can see that the factory drops out of sight just before landing!
