Air Traffic Worldwide movie

Very similar to the Flight Patterns video I posted back in October 2007, this is a video showing all commercial flight in the world over a 24-hour period.  The previous video was only the U.S., but this one shows the entire world.  It also shows the day/night areas and you can see the increase in air traffic as dawn rises around the world.  Its from the Zhaw School of Engineering in Zurich.

Fly Through Airport Security




"How to...Fly Through Airport Security" illustration by Jason Lee from Wired Magazine, March 2008 (16.03).

You might as well check your dignity curbside. Soon you'll be shoeless and flustered, spilling comics across the floor as you dig your MacBook from the depths of your duffel. But take a deep breath, frequent fliers: It is possible to pass security with your ego intact. Here's how.

The Transatlantic Superhighway


I never really thought about it, but I'm sure the flight patterns over the Atlantic are actually this tightly controlled. Now the news that President Bush made some of the military flight paths available over the holidays makes more sense. The Transatlantic Superhighway is one of the diagrams on John Grimwade's Information Graphics site.

Infographic Airport Video

I came across this on Janine Swainston's blog:

The animated story of one man's epic journey, created entirely from public domain symbols. In other words, an airport story told in the language of airport infographics.

Flight Explorer Snapshot


Reader submission (thanks Karen).

On the NATCA (National Air Traffic Controllers Association) website is this U.S. map showing every airline flight currently in the air. The information is delayed by 5 minutes. Also, the graphic isn't interactive, so you can see any information about the dots (like which flight it is).


You can also zoom into nine select cities to see the flights in the air and the flight numbers. So the next time you're lying in the grass with your kids (in one of the major cities) looking up at the sky, you could (if you wanted to) figure out where that airplane is going.

Flight Patterns


The images at Flight Patterns are really cool, but the videos are awesome (I think my favorite is the color coded)! Created by Aaron Koblin at UCLA, he took the daily flight data from the FAA and plotted the flight paths over the U.S. over time.
