Watch: A Trans-Pacific Flight From Tokyo to San Francisco in 84 Seconds

Here's the view most passengers don't get to see

A flight from Tokyo to San Francisco usually takes about 9 hours and 35 minutes, but the video above compiles over 3,400 images to create an 84-second timelapse of the trans-Pacific journey.

The video, captured from inside a Boeing 747, shows a stunning dashboard view of the ocean behind layers of clouds.

Our favorite part? Seeing the plane speed into the sunrise starting at around 0:43.
