Christiaan Van Heijst is a 747 pilot and one of the world's leading aviation photographers. Cargopilot is a heavyweight luxury coffee table volume bringing together over 200 of his photos from the cockpit and from the ramp on six continents, from technically fascinating views of the operation of the Boeing 747 to evocative earthscapes and the rare sight of other aircraft in flight. Christiaan was also witness to a unique phenomenon, which lit up the floor of the Pacific Ocean at night as his cargo jet flew overhead. Geologers, nautical authorities, the military (officially) and the airlines are at a loss to explain the sight, but Christiaan's photos of that night that were published around the world are reproduced in this book, along with Christiaan's detailed account of the flight.

Christiaan's flying and his camera take in everything from the global megahubs of Chicago, Beijing and Luxembourg to exotic ports such as Kinshasa, Kabul and Lagos. This book is a must-have for fans of aviation, geography, and photography.

About the author: Christiaan van Heijst was born in the Netherlands in 1983. Christiaan's flying career began on the Fokker 50 with Denimair in West Africa and Afghanistan, and progressed to Transavia on the Boeing 737. Today he is a senior first officer on the Boeing 747 at Cargolux, flying worldwide out of the airline's base at Luxembourg.In addition, Christiaan has become well-known for his aerial photography, which has been reproduced widely in print and online.
