Air Traffic in US, Nice Animation

Watch Air traffic in US, nice animation!

FACET simulates all flights operating in US on a typical day. On the day shown below, the fewest flights in air were about 862 and the most were about 5,600. The animations were done with NASA’s FACET tool using real FAA flight data for August 24, 2005.

And, check Casper to see real-time air traffic in Europe. Casper is not an animation; it is real-time and has a better UI. But, Casper displays far fewer aircraft at a time.
