The Las Vegas Strip at Sunset from McCarran Field (Harry Reid International)

Vimeo file:


This video is from my latest trip. I put it in the public domain and uploaded the file to Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons. I had to format it in .webm which I don’t like. Hence, the video you see above is hosted at Vimeo in conventional Mp4.

This video was taken from the window of a commercial jet taking off from Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Prominent are the major casinos of the Las Vegas Strip. Among them are, moving from left to right as the plane moves: Mandalay Bay/The Delano; the Excalibur; New York New York; the MGM Grand (in green); the Waldorf Astoria, Aria; the Bellagio (curved facade); the Linq’s High Roller Ferris wheel; the Mirage (with the word LOVE at the top of the building).

Notable toward the end of the video at the middle left is a view of the new Las Vegas Raiders’ stadium which uses dark glass.
