Buzzfeed created a heatmap with Flightradar24-data from the busiest day of 2016, the image shows a snapshot of the world at its most frenetic: a full day of flights, on the busiest day for aviation last year. A Strava heatmap, but for aircraft 😉
For a detailed explanation about the airways, busiest airports and no-fly zones, read the very interesting article: https://www.buzzfeed.com/peteraldhous/busiest-day-flights?utm_term=.cwoD7O0Mb#.fkxx8nREO
