    That is pretty awesome. Did you take the picture from the plane yourself?

    As expected

    Las Vegas is much better in IOS6 than in reality :)

    Now for the question..

    Can anyone tell which runway his flight took off from at LAS?

    Winner gets a pat on their virtual back and a free download of IOS6. :D

    EDIT: Let's make it more fun.

    Can anyone name the airline, flight number, destination, and runway?

    (not to sound stalking, but I already know all of them; I planespot and listen to ATC)

    BL.

    If only Apple managed to do such a thing for the entire world, it would be a very good Maps application.

    Probably have to wait until 2020....

    Don't you know anything about smog and the glare from shooting pics from inside of an airplane and through the thick glass? The image from IOS 6 can be doctored and/or cleaned up to look clearer and cleaner.

    Reality has no place in Las Vegas; Vegas is a place of fantasy where multiple clones of Elvis walk the streets, hookers outnumber tourists, etc.
