Airspace Video Shows Skies Teeming With Jets
Britain’s air traffic controller Nats has produced a video showing what plane-filled skies look like on a typical summer day.
The illustration combines UK radar data and European flight plan information from two days in June and July.
Nats says a few highlights include the North Atlantic tracks that connect Europe with North America, the airways that run up the spine of the UK, the holding stacks at London’s capacity-stretched airports and the military manoeuvres off Anglesey in Wales. Airspace is the ‘lifeblood’ of Britain’s economy, says Nats
“Airspace might be the invisible infrastructure,” Nats says.
“But it is every bit as important as the road, rail and utility networks we all rely on everyday. It is the lifeblood of our island economy, connecting the UK to the rest of the world.
“Getting it right matters and we all have a stake in it.
“We hope you enjoy it and that is acts as a small reminder of the incredible work air traffic controllers, working with pilots and ground crew, do every single day.”

Jerry Lewis’ Nazi clown movie: Footage surfaces from the infamous ‘Day the Clown Cried’

Since 1972, all footage from Jerry Lewis‘ “The Day the Clown Cried” has remained under lock and key — for good reason.
Lewis’ film, which he wrote, directed and starred in centered on a clown who led Jewish children to their deaths during the Holocaust. Since filming, the legendary comedian has sworn repeatedly that the movie would never see the light of day.
In the film, which has grown into something of a cult-obsession for film buffs over the years, Lewis plays a downtrodden German circus clown named Helmut Doork, who finds himself arrested after drunkenly mocking Adolf Hitler and placed in a concentration camp while awaiting trial. He then boards a train headed to Auschwitz full of Jewish children, and, once there, he’s forced to perform for them as they’re led to the gas chambers, eventually joining them in the chamber in the final scene. Grim stuff, huh?
On Monday (Aug. 12), unearthed footage from a Flemish news program reveals Lewis in full costume and makeup as the titular clown, making a paper airplane, giving the world its first look at the character Lewis has tried to hard to keep hidden.
