West flowing traffic

At this time looks like a lot more Europe to US traffic than the other way around

Follow the money?
It's a constant trend; I see them every day flying over my house in Gloucester - that's in Gawcestershire, Englandshire. :lol: :lol:
I shudder to think what all those planes are doing to our atmosphere!

Fascinating graphic, isn't it. You can almost draw the lines of each of the Westbound "NAT Tracks" by the flow of traffic. I suppose on this side of the pond we tend not to be looking at FR24 etc when they are generally flowing the other way in the middle of our night.

Quite impressive indeed.
Note that I checked again a few seconds ago, and now all planes are going the opposite direction :D

Well as Daube says, they all have to come back. It can't be one way all the time :lol: :lol: :lol:
