European Air Traffic

The Telegraph this morning uses a graphic from the brilliant site which gives a real time view of all aircraft movements in Europe - and shows the complete lack of them across most of it at the moment. Clicking on an aircraft gives all the information air traffic control have - model, destination, origin, height, speed etc. Filters add airspeed, airports or altitude to the map itself beside each teeny plane icon.

Fantastic example of instant access thanks to the good old Internet. It's just like the services we've all been looking at to track then non-existent Euroferries fleet, but airborne. 159 aircraft airborne at the moment. Fabulous. Enjoy.
