The Plane Highway in The Sky 



Thanks to air currents, heavy traffic and no radar, the aviation industry developed a highway in the sky. Though not much different from your typical interstate or turnpike, the sky highway is a dead zone where planes act a little differently. They say goodbye to the flight controllers and flight dispatchers, and cruise one after the other, in line, across the Atlantic. This is a fantastically well done and entertaining aviation video essay that explains a little known part of aviation jobs and air travel.
