This has just been released:


Taken from radar data from over 6000 flights. Is it any wonder why we see so many aircraft exhaust trails?

The airports labelled are only the five in SE England. Those of Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Norwich, Edinburgh, Glasgow, etc. etc. are not indicated, but their traffic is clearly visible.

Some of the peculiar movements are military training, particularly over Wales.

You can go to the flightradar website or download the app for your mobile phone for free and watch it all happening in real time... the graphics are not as good as the animation but are more than enough to see what is going on in the sky above us.
