The big mechanical bees of the flying human race

Europe 24 from NATS on Vimeo.

Airplanes. Those big, nice, air-ships that lead us to the clouds and above. The video from above shows a visualization of the flights throughout Europe in any given day. Impressing.

From the video drescription:

This data visualization of Air Traffic in Europe was created from real flight data. It shows the air traffic which flies on a typical summer day and highlights the intensity of the operation in Europe – an operation which runs 24x7x365.
NATS and the UK are at the heart of the operation. With Heathrow as the busiest international airport in Europe, and Gatwick as the busiest single runway airport in the world, we play a key role in ensuring air traffic under our control in European airspace is as safe and efficient as it can be.
