Welcome back to our Stock Footage of the Week series, where we discuss trending content and the latest events.

We’ve all had that dream—we’re soaring through the air, gazing down over majestic oceans and snow-capped mountaintops. Or perhaps you’d prefer to glide through a maze of skyscrapers and perch atop the Empire State Building? Wherever your imagination takes you, the fact remains that we all dream of taking flight—so it’s really no wonder that aerial footage consistently ranks among of our top-trending royalty-free video clips.

While independent flight may evade those of us not blessed with Kryptonian superpowers or bit by a radioactive spider, there’s no reason to keep your imagination—or your next film project—grounded. Soar above the status quo with this week’s featured flying footage.
