It’s completely understandable for people to have a fear of heights. Humans weren’t born with wings after all. Statistically speaking, flying is the safest form of travel. People get nervous because of the heights and the fact that in the incredibly rare situation where something does go wrong, there aren’t exactly a lot of options.

Having said that, there is a unique beauty and perspective offered by flight, which is something precious few humans have had the gift of. As a result, some pranksters have gotten up to some interesting antics. You can’t see their work at ground level. To fully appreciate these impressive — and sometimes funny — sights, you will need a pair of wings. Then you can see things like:
