Something Totally Cool

On my Air France flight to Paris, each coach seat had a small screen in the back of the headrest for movies, games, etc. As we were approaching Charles De Gaulle airport (or Roissy, as the locals call it), the video presentation was switched to the plane flying over the map showing where we were as we approached. Then came the most amazing bit. The screen switched from the map to a live shot of the ground below us. As we flew toward the airport, the farmland and villages were seen on camera. I could look out the window and see the scenery that was displayed on the screen. As we got closer, the camera angle shifter to be looking straight out rather than down, but we were able to see the entire approach, right up to the gate. That was quite a trip.
