I wanted to shoot out the window on a recent flight and all I had available was my iPhone 3GS. The scanning order of the sensor combined with the refraction from the window caused this pretty cool phenomenon. I then discovered that rotating the camera would warp the blades in different directions.

The footage was brought into After Effects and rotated to match the physical rotation of the iPhone.
