    This is the sort of video that LouB747 sometimes provides: airliners in flight photographed from other airliners. Perhaps the most dramatic starts at 1:12 where three airliners are stacked vertically! The names that appear on the screen are those of the aircraft the videos are being shot from, not those of the aircraft visible.

    Does this count? Shot at 18,000' MSL over the Swiss Alps.

    I once had a mid-air collision at 3,500 AGL. I and another balloon took off simultaneously. He had planned to go two miles high, I told him I'd go a mile high and then descend. We were within talking distance all the way up to 3,500' when suddenly we started moving toward each other. We kissed momentarily; I remember looking up into the balloon and seeing the shadow of his envelope against mine. As we seperated, I descended and he continued his climb to 10,560'. I landed about two miles from the launch site; he, about twenty miles. Afterwards we both commented that that was the weirdest thing that we had ever encounter while flying. I noted it in my log book that day. Great memory!

    My friend and neighbor is a 777 Captain with AA and posted this yesterday of his plane overflying Greenland at FL 360, Mach .83 headed to MIA, taken by a United crew.
