Air Traffic Flow Worldwide

A friend sent me this video and it's really cool. It shows the worldwide flow of airline flights over a 24 hour period. Note the big burst of overnight flights from North American to Europe, the blossoming of flights over North America that migrates west with the emerging daylight (westbound Europe flights too). This is a great example of a dynamic information graphic. Go to the YouTube page and click the "watch in high quality" button if you have the bandwidth.
