Watch Europe air travel from above (video)

We posted a beautiful image of Spain from space earlier this evening.  Well, how about seeing virtually ALL the air travel going on in Europe, as seen from above?  Not just Spain this time, but a lot of those planes are heading there...

"This data visualization 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."

Enjoy this beautiful video!
