Flight Patterns over New York


Cool article from Wired. It's about a mathematical model of the redesign of the departure paths, hopefully reducing delays and congestion.

Being a fan of the iPhone game Flight Control, I can appreciate the complexity of the system.  Um, not that it makes me an air traffic controller or anything.

  2. Looking at this you realize that the only thing that will reduce delays is more runways or airports. Next gen won't do a thing for arrival & departures
