Aviation around the world – 24 hrs in 2 minutes

25May08

I stumbled across this video. It shows all the commercial airline flights across the world over a single 24 hour time period, condensed in to about 2 minutes. A graphical reminder of just how much aviation has developed and how much more it has to go.

Watch the shadow of the sun and see what happens as day comes first to Europe and then to North America. And look at the absence of flights in Africa and South America – that won’t last.

World Air Traffic over a 24-Hour Period

Makes you think.
