Did anyone else notice the star pattern that emerged? If I`m thinking correctly, the top was O`Hare in Chi-Town, the right top point NYC, the bottom right Florida, and the left two I`m not sure. I`d have to watch it again. Anyway, I thought it was rather interesting.

way cool!! Must`ve taken a while to get all the flight information then put it into aniations and stuff. Awesome vid though. Only left me wondering one thing..what were the patterns exactly? were they supposed to be anything or just designs...hmm...

That is really awsome. I`t would be cool to see it real time....just to see how many planes are in the air and where they`re at any particular moment. But then i thought about, who would want to watch that. it would take like three hours for one plane to take off and then land. But the whole thing was really awsome. and i`m with the guy who asked about the screen saver version that would be a really neat screen saver.

I don`t want to be a downer, but remember this the next time someone asks "why can`t we secure the skies, why can`t we track a single plane, why don`t they know what`s going on up there?" You try and track that!
Cool animation, tho. Good work!

So I guess this means that when Korea and Iran destroy the US, there could be as many as 8,000,000 people left flying above in the skies.

yea, if they had missiles that could reach us then maybe. Oh and even if they did what do they have like 10 of them? we have a few hundred that would be suicide. cool video though

Cool."

Wow, I can see you`re a decent human being. Too bad both NK and Iran will be parking lots before they can even get their missiles 2 feet in the air.

Anyway, that animation was insane. I wonder what software he used...

Interesting.

And I think people know what state the environment is in, they just don`t care. Like me.

Cool little colored dot animation. Animation gets convoluted and kind of meaningless toward the end of the video. I give it a three.

Yes, seeing the rest of the world woulda been cool, but I guess getting flight data from every country would`ve been too immense a task.

Just think that every plane journey (ave. 3 hrs) emits the same amount of carbon as one years electricity for a house of 4 people. I really think that we need to reconsider our use of planes. Back to Zepplins I reacon, BTW the third almbum was the best for me!!
