What you say about looking down on airplanes in flight reminded me of a flight I took a few years ago to Las Vegas...

...the only flight that my ears havnt popped on was the leg from Dulles to Denver.

We didnt get a chance to explore Denver airport as we had to run to our next flight.

I will have to make sure I take a vacation there eventually
