Google Earth Flight Path Animations II
Continuing the idea of time animated flight paths in Google Earth, this KML file includes 300+ non-stop international routes from the four busiest international airports in the USA: New York Kennedy, Chicago O’Hare, Miami International and Los Angeles (LAX).
I’ve put together a video which shows the individual animations for each hub, then all combined.

I’ve made a few subtle KML ‘style’ changes from the Chicago version – thinner lines, different colours etc – but it’s pretty much the same thing multiplied by 6.
Routes are based on the destinations listed under individual airports in Wikipedia. Flight times are indicative not accurate. The KML is compiled by a script I’ve created to generate trajectories along ‘great circles’.
Anyone else think there’s a resemblance between this and the computer simulated nuclear war in the movie ‘WarGames‘ ? 😉
