Animation Shows Busy Skies Over London

https://vimeo.com/132804154

This mesmerising animation shows just how many planes go to and from London's five major airports over a 24 hour period. In all there are 3000 flights represented here, demonstrating exactly why the city is struggling to cope with demand and why a new runway at Heathrow is on the cards (which will bring the total number of runways in London to seven).

The animation has been made by Britain's National Air Traffic Services, who has the unenviable job of coordinating all that overhead traffic.
