The video depicts an endless loop of a Boeing airplane cruising on the tarmac, taxing on the runway but never taking off. The camera is fixed from the side of the aircraft as the background scenery of trees passes rapidly, insinuating movement. The audio depicts the white noise of the aircraft mixed with relaxing music often played inside planes before take off.
