I loved that! I liked how purposeful some patterns were, compared with the randomness of others.

Busy, isn't it.

The big circles are AWACS flights.
GA aircraft wandering as they following visual markers...
All sorts going on.

Like a load of fireflys.

I like the beginning with the invading hoard from the USA.

Most flights I've taken into the UK / Europe leave in the evening and arrive early in the morning local time, which is like 2am for my body, and as a result I stumble through tug customs procedures like a lumbering zombie.

Petroffsky beamed. 'Now you may be certain of seeing me soon,' he declared. 'Au revoir. Remember, my rifle is at your command.'
'And my chocolate is at yours,' returned Biggles, smiling. 'Goodbye for now.'

They've been working together for so long that each seems to know by a sort of telepathy when another is in trouble. One never seems to get them together. Get one & the others come after him. To give the devil his due they make a formidable team.
