Billings Montana is quit the city to fly into…your landing on a cliff with Billings city below. Very unique airport.

I've always enjoyed the landing here at MSP. Really gives you a sense of just how numerous the lakes are in the Twin Cities metro — along with the grand reveal of the Minneapolis skyline soaring just beyond Lake of the Isles and Lake Calhoun moments before landing.

At night, Phoenix is very impressive to fly into. During day, just slightly above average

Miami is my favorite in the U.S.

I like how you fly over the everglades and downtown and see the beaches/crystal blue water. Feels like you are flying onto an island almost IMO

Montreal, you see the crazy density and urban build of the city, the large downtown area, Mont Royal, the beautiful blue waters of the St.Lawrence river and a huge island (with multiple islands around).

You can occasionally get a glimpse of the Minneapolis or St. Paul skyline when flying into MSP depending on which approach they use.

The first picture is beyond surreal for a North American city that isn't New York and to a lesser extent Chicago and Toronto, that picture basically emphasizes the point I was making on this forum last week; that Montreal's urban fabric, high density, and most of all, cohesively dense high structural density is much more than Boston's and over a far greater expanse than teeny Boston.

If anyone has an aerial picture of core Boston that shows the same level (or higher) of structural density OVER the same amount of area as depicted in this picture for Montreal, then bring it forth now for all to view. If not, then point made, hahahaha.

It depends on your approach, but you can see philly pretty well on a clear day.

I like this angle because you can see how large Fairmount Park really is right in the middle of the city.
