Thursday Afternoon Diversion: The Busiest Airport In The World

By Kevin Robinson in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 13, 2014 9:00PM

Here's a wonderful time-lapse video of flights coming into O'Hare Airport in the evening. You can get a scale both of the amazing feat of traffic management that goes into directing so many planes into O'Hare, and just how busy the airport really is.

(Note: Although this video features the logo of the Hyatt Regency, it's not from the hotel, or from Hyatt. The filmmaker, Max Wilson, placed the logo in his film in gratitude to the property for allowing him rooftop access.)
