Flying the friendly skies.

Via flightradar.com
I've discovered the latest website to simultaneously take my breath away and give me nightmares; flightradar24! The screengrab above is what the skies above the U.S. look like right now, and that's with most flight heading west actually being cancelled!

That's a lot of planes! So yeah, the visual freaks me out. But man is it also impressive when you consider the work and talents of everyone in the airline industry--from air traffic controller to pilots and everyone who supports them--that keeps that massive machine running. Pretty cool, huh?
