QUEENSTOWN: Breathtaking footage coming into Queenstown Airport.

Breathtaking footage of a pilot's eye view of the approach to Queenstown Airport has gone viral with 20,000 Facebook shares. 

Shot from the cockpit of a plane on the mountainous approach to Queenstown Airport by ''thewillyballs'' and set to Coldplay's Paradise, the four-minute 11-second clip was given a one-line description that says 'Sometimes what a pilot sees in a day, people won't see in their lifetimes. New Zealand has some truly amazing scenery'.

 
It is unknown if thewillyballs is a Queenstown-based pilot or a visitor to the area.
