This video, made by some 'aspiring scientists' at the Zurich School of Applied Sciences uses data from FlightStats to show every commercial flight in the world.

The video shows planes swarming like bees in an amazing simulation of the world's aircraft movements. The traffic peaks, tapers and peaks again as day changes to night - you can even see flights racing to reach Australia and the US in the early morning... amazing.
