Video: 24 hours in the North Atlantic skies

01:58, Jul 07 2014

This new, cool 3D visualisation shows all the passenger planes that go through the five major air spaces over the North Atlantic during a 24 hour period.

It's like watching a modern version of the thermonuclear war simulations in War Games - without all the final explosions.

The video was created by NATS - a big provider of air traffic control services in the UK and globally - using the most recent real time data gathered by their computer systems.
