"Fly the friendly crowded skies of......."

flight radar

This is for real, not to mention "scary"! At almost any given time through out the day there are thousands of aircraft flying above the United States and Canada. This screen print was taken on 1/29/14 at 10:45 CST. Count them if you must, but the data listed at the time of this screen print was 6,503 aircraft aloft.

Click the following link: www.flightradar24.com Place your mouse above any active aircraft. Click the aircraft icon for the complete inflight details.

I doubt if "Wilbur and Orville" every dreamed it would come to this.
