A century of air travel and a gorgeous wind map

Here’s “In Flight,” a fabulous interactive website from The Guardian that documents a century of air travel.

Also worth a click is thisĀ Wind Map, a gorgeous, mesmerizing black and white graphic that documents current wind conditions in the United States. It’s a work of art.

(Thanks to Angela Donini for pointing me to these two sites.)

UPDATE: This global wind map is even more impressive. As David Schmidt said when he pointed it out to me just now, “Spin our pebble to the Southern Ocean and be amazed.”

I’m going to enjoy watching Patagonia get hammered.
