Vancouver International Airport’s aircraft diversity has increased dramatically over recent years, thanks to all new the airlines and routes the airport has seen.

And a new surreal photo posted on Reddit shows the wide spectrum in a new way.

Reddit user Kolnidur dedicated eight hours photographing every plane as it arrived at YVR, combining them all into a single composite image.

This was in late September of 2017. Post production was quite involved, as you can imagine, which is why I’m just getting around to sharing it now 🙂 Lots of photoshop pen tooling! I had a stationary camera mounted on a tripod on the top of a building near the approach path and photographed every plane that arrived. In post, I removed a few duplicates of plane type and livery (do I need to remind anyone of the misery that is flight on an a320? didn’t think so…) for clarity. I’ve been doing these all over the world for the past few years whenever I have a free week or so and figured it was time I set my sights on one of the prettiest airports in the world!

If you want to check out the rest of the collection, you can find the photos here.

Someone give the photographer some gold!
