The Kid Should See This

What Happens to Your Checked Luggage at the Airport

Ride the luggage roller coaster at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in this behind-the-scenes glimpse at where your bag goes after you check it in at the counter. This POV video footage from a luggage-mounted camera illuminates all of the twists, turns, bumps, flips, lane changes, tunnels, elevators, sophisticated conveyor belts, and at least one robotic arm. Surprisingly, there doesn’t appear to be many people involved in this part of the process.

For the fully interactive and rather dizzying 360-degree version of the video — look up! glance back! spin! — visit Schiphol.nl.
