v.f.r. on top

'v.f.r. on top' stands for 'visual flight rules' on top, which means that a pilot can see out the window (s/he's not in the clouds), but can't see the ground (due to a ceiling below the plane).

below: some pictures of this phenomenon, and (maybe) a few others from recent flights:



in the photo on the right, 
we are about to 'punch in' to a cloud.

(pretty cool)
it would have been incredible, from the cockpit.
