The aviation space around the world witnessed the highest number of flights on July 24 since 2006. More than 225,000 flights were recorded by Flightradar24, a real-time air-traffic-tracking service, stating that it was the highest since they began their operation 13 years back.
The Swedish internet-based service tweeted an image representing virtually every trackable aircraft in the world that flew on Wednesday between midnight 11:59 pm UTC. The list includes everything from cargo planes and commercial passenger flights to helicopters, private jets, glider, sight-seeing flights, personal aircraft and more.
The company tracks flights by receiving combining data from several publicly available sources such as ADS-B transponder signals from aircraft, MLAT transponder calculation and radar data. The tracking excludes certain sensitive air traffic including most military flights. The numbers are, however, possible to be attained before 2006 when Flightradar24 was established.
