Photography and film professor Cy Kuckenbaker has created a time-lapse video collage showing every plane landing at San Diego International Airport on the day after Thanksgiving from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

In an interview with PetaPixel, Kuckenbaker says he was inspired to create the video after seeing a montage by Ho-Yeol Ryu at Hannover Airport.

"I moved to a new neighborhood in San Diego a little over a year ago that put me close to the San Diego Int Airport," he said. "Since then I have become increasingly interested in the rhythms of the airport and the airplanes themselves."

Kuckenbaker used a combination of techniques to create the video, filming different backgrounds of the airport sky and then working in images of the planes themselves.
