During some routine cleanup of my stuff today, I came across this old clip I received some time ago, showing the air traffic patterns around the world, over a 24-hour stretch. (I have, however, included a link to the YouTube version instead…)
It highlights all large aircraft (as yellow spots), and it is interesting to note the “swarms” and their relation to daylight times in the US and Europe, for example. This clip has been around for a while, but I’m not actually sure where it comes from, can anyone help out?

cool beans, thanks 🙂 The site I originally saw it on was actually an amateur radio ham site in the US (a site specifically keen on following air traffic controllers etc) – but that wasn’t the source obviously.
