Mesmerizing Video Tracks Flights

There have been several attempts at depicting flight paths around busy airports and around the world, some more successful than others. One of the coolest visualizations has recently come out of Europe though a British company called NATS, which offers a variety of aviation-related solutions.

Titled Europe 24, NATS' video depicts actual flights arriving at and departing from the area around London, England.

The tracks amalgamate data during two 24-hour periods: one from U.K. radar sources on June 21, 2013, and the other from European flight plan information on July 28, 2013.
