Not if it means my daughter dies on her own drug-induced vomit while sleeping, and then while mourning I inadvertently cause two airliners to collide mid-air, no. I don't.

And that, children, is how an egg is fertilized.

If only we had a train system as efficient as the Japanese system

What's going on between England and Ireland at 1:14?

Why so much air traffic between Dublin and Belfast? It's like a 2 1/2 hour drive

I was dissipointed to see a lack of USAF flights out of RAF Lakenheath. Must have been on a weekend or something.

Do they have one of those for malaysia/china? I think we may need to study it i bit more closely.

Crewmannumber6: Why so much air traffic between Dublin and Belfast? It's like a 2 1/2 hour drive


Cactus runs flights between PHX and TUS. 118 mi (190 km), 1:45 by car. Unless you live at one airport or the other, it's quicker to drive P2P.

Google says airtraffic controllers make ~122k/yr. Thanks but no thanks, i make more than that sitting at home writing mobile apps and websites with zero lives at risk.

They missed one.

Not very impressive, all things considered. It's not nearly as much traffic as they've slyly made it appear.

I always thought it was intentional.

I imagine that's what the view from ISS will look like exactly 14 minutes after North Korea manages to get a nuke airborne...

Extra scary: I am on a flight from Atlanta to Seattle right now.... Thank farking god they have WiFi on the plane...  I wish the hippo in the seat next to me was gone, I'd rather have a screaming baby for the 5½ flight.  I would love to see the same visualization of several North American airspace areas.

If you look carefully you can see a LOT of manual vectoring.

One of the constants I've experienced flying into the UK is that the controllers don't rely on published approaches/departures it's manual vectoring again, and again, and again instead of just letting the dictates of the procedure align traffic. Methinks it's a make-work program for Eurocontrol.

US controllers seem to be handle more traffic, more efficiently, by letting the procedure do all the hard work.

Even ICBMs don't move that fast.
