Woman Trips Out After Seeing Plane ‘Just Floating’ While On Flight

A motionless passenger jet appears to float above the city of Chicago in bizarre footage which has blown more than a few minds on TikTok. Watch below:

Amber Baker shot the video from the window of another plane as it passed by the strange scene.

Below the apparently unmoving plane, the skyscrapers of Chicago stand tall beneath a clouded sunset with the airliner sitting in the sky not so far above.

In the video, Baker says: "Ok guys, tell me I am not tripping right now.

"The plane is not moving.

"It's so crazy. It's so strange.

"What is happening?"

Baker explains that she was astonished because her friend had already sent her a video depicting the same phenomenon, and here she was seeing the same thing with her own eyes.

It's not the first time astounding footage of similar miracles has been captured.

Metro reported on another video shot from a car showing the exact same phenomenon last year.

The newspaper's science and technology editor Jeff Parsons wrote: "In all likelihood the motion of the car is counteracting the slowing down of the plane - possibly as it comes in to land.

"Add to that the shifting perspective of the camera and it could seem as if the plane was stationary in the air."

One user commenting on Baker's video has explained the phenomenon in similar terms.

He said: "You're tripping.

"The jetliner is simply moving at the same speed as your jetliner. Jetliner passenger vertigo."

As expected, the usual crowd of amateur rocket scientists piled in with comments explaining the scene in their own terms.

Some ridiculed Baker for being fooled, with one user commenting: "It's physics. It's just plain old physics."

Another wrote: "Did people just skip science class?"

Other users with more humour than the self-proclaimed scientists launched jests with references to famous sci-fi films.

One commented: "It's a glitch in the matrix or from a different reality crossing into ours."

Another commented: "I just talked to customer service, the matrix is getting a patched update. Don't worry about it."

Perhaps after a few in-flight G&Ts and a handful of chilli nuts, my eyes would be watering enough to believe some of those suggestions.

And what an experience that would be.
