The One-Minute Turn?

New Arrival

In a recent video blog, Christi Day told you the history of our 25-minute turns. But in this video, you'll see a 50-second turn (beginning at about 1:21 into the video).

This video uses a time-lapse technique that captures 1 frame per second, which makes the resulting video 30 times faster than "real time."

It was shot from the roof (deck) of Southwest Airlines Headquarters and begins with a segment at 6:00 a.m. as Dallas Love Field and our Headquarters are waking up. Then, it switches to mid afternoon.
