Cockpit view of night landing in Los Angeles

Landing in any major city at night can be a thrill. The lights down below are enticing and the energy of a city after dark gets your pulse racing. Or, you know, maybe you're just exhausted and ready to collapse. This video of a plane coming in for a landing at LAX offers amazing views of the many neighborhoods of Los Angeles and the surrounding area (all labeled for our benefit). It's a view we don't often get to see (directly from the cockpit of the plane) of a city that's incredibly spread out.
