Few breakthroughs have had as much of an impact on human civilization as air travel. Agriculture, modern medicine, and the Internet are just a few others that can match its scope. Because they are so small when viewed from 30,000 feet, it’s easy to forget just how many planes are in the sky at any given moment — let alone in a 24-hour period. One of the busiest corridors for air travel is the Atlantic Ocean, and as you will see in the video above from Flight Radar 24, we can get a sense of the sheer number of these flights in this area in a 24-hour period. To get your mind blown even more, be sure to visit to see a live radar tracker of every plane in the world. And in case you haven’t seen it, I’ve also included a video (at very bottom of this post) from March 2016 which shows the huge amount of shipping traffic that spans the world’s oceans across a one-week period.
