Video: Every single airplane crossing the North Atlantic in a 24-hour period

Submitted
This new cool 3D visualization shows all the airplanes that go through the five major air spaces over the North Atlantic during a 24 hour period. It's like watching a modern version of the thermonuclear war simulations in War Games—without all the final explosions. (vimeo.com) More...

Excellent clip and makes you appreciate air traffic controllers

Makes you appreciate computers and the technicians that maintain the equipment controllers are becoming more irrelevant and the automation and the technicians are becoming more important

For all that traffic....it's amazing how alone you feel out there when you are flying the tracks. You may see one or two ahead of you, certainly here one another on 123.45 but certainly don't think there are hundreds out there. Cool video

Thanks for sharing, that is cool. Here is a video of air traffic over Europe, crazy to see how busy the airspace gets. Enjoy! http://digg.com/video/watch-all-the-air-travel-in-europe-with-this-beautiful-video

Can't find a clip of air traffic over the US. DAG, during the daytime I would think it would be a ball of light.

That was far more informative than a constantly revolving/moving display. Thanks for the link.

Nice clip. Not only do you feel like the only crew out there but you hear every little sound the aircraft makes.

Very interesting. At around 1:30 you can see the Newark-bound flights making the right turn over HANAA to go direct ALB, which is in the airspace I watch via virtual radar.

Oops. That's a LEFT turn.

What an impressive video! It surely gives a greater appreciation for air traffic control, and for all the planning and coordination that is done to keep all that air traffic moving with so few problems.

Hi everyone. And as each of you write in English, i'll do it in French. C'est une suprbe video qui montre a quel point nous devons notre sécurité aux contrôleurs. Bravo messieurs.
Now, the game. Try to translate that perfectly and y'll get my congratulations.
Have a nice Sunday flying up to the Europe.

Rough Translation: It is a superb video which shows the point we owe our security to controllers. Bravo Gentlemen. Instead of the congratulation.....how about x 6 pack?

I mixed up the verbs devoir and avoid, yours was better.

It is a super video that shows at what point we have our security as controllers. Good job gentlemen.

I tried. Cheers

Lonely? I wonder why there's not more sightings when I/you fly say CVG-LAX, PHX, MIA, or where ever.

Every Single Airplane Crossing the North Atlantic in a 24-Hour Period

Great video showing a 3D image of NAT Tracks. Amazing how may aircraft fly those routes everyday.
