• Isle of Pines - part of a Hidden Journey

Are you a long-distance air traveller?  Ever wondered what lies down below as you cruise at some 13,000m altitude and watch the dots on an inflight screen tick over the distance covered between your departure and arrival?

The Royal Geographic Society, based in London, has come up with the idea of a 'Hidden Journeys' project, aimed at enlivening the flying experience by providing interactive guides to air travellers about the parts of the world they fly over.

Isle of Pines features in the Society's latest guide covering the flight path from Sydney to Hawaii. The island joins images and information of other remote  territories as the guide tracks over the Pacific and crosses the International Date Line.
The guide is presently available through However, the R.G.S. hopes the geo-entertainment will eventually be incorporated into in-flight entertainment systems, making the tracking lines on a screen more meaningful.
