Yea, and when something goes wrong they usually gets the blame. I can't believe people wants a job like that, but admire that someone actually does it.

my friend now studying for this job in canada, only one year to learn english (he's saudi) and another year for the job course, not that many years of study and his first salary will be around 3500$ a month, imagine you work there for three or four years it'll be at least the double, so that's why people go for jobs like that.

But is it worth it?
A danish air trafic controller became a hunted man, because 2 planes didnt follow his instructions, one plane had like 200 kids on it or something, they crashed and everyone blamed the trafic controller. People wanted him dead.

One of my cousins used to work in the control tower, he told me it is probably the most stressful job to have from the start to the end of the shift. I feel bad if its that bad for them

The precision with which those airplanes fly around those thunder clouds is astounding.

With those lines trailing behind them it's like a highly complex game of snake

you know that that is sped up and depending on how fast the airplane can get it's butt off the runway another plane can land within a minut if i'm not mistaken...

they are perhaps spaces adequately? or the map is just not properly to scale and/or the tracking not accurate

when the thunderstorm was over the airport, there was a spot with 8 airplanes going in the same ******* circle 3 times. If someone was beside the airport and looked up he/she would see 20 ******* planes just swirling around.

If you look at the gif, there are multiple times when the green dots are almost merging into one big blob and continue to follow the same path. That would mean that those green dots were planes following each other at the same time. Like commercial airliners tailgating each other.

around airports (especially larger ones) there are pockets of airspace that planes are sent to where they are in a holding patern while waiting for permission to land

also where they nearly merge is probably just innacurate tracking but in the bigger airports planes will land around 10-20 seconds of another plane landing depending entirely on the size of the plane

I commented on this, sort of. I live in Georgia and this airport is the most busy airport in the entire world. I haven't been there for a while, but I do remember there being many runways.

It's sped up a to sow several hours within a few seconds, and, as you can see, it's most of Missouri so the planes are farther apart than they look.

An airport is a lot bigger than one runway. And they will be cramming the planes in as fast as possible because, you know, storm.

Also this .gif is probably over the span of 3-4 hours

All planes are going in different altitudes and planes usually land on the same strip with a timespace of 5-10 minutes
ive even heard of as little as 2 minutes

Eh, our government isn't too terrible. We're ranked top ten on almost every list (from forbes to alec.org) for economic power and growth. Not to mention Atlanta is apparently the best location in the states for technology jobs. Also, let's not forget that Georgia is shaping up to be Hollywood 2.0 as many studios are planning to move into the State in the coming years.

Atlanta is a big hub, however it's like the only hub besides ****** Savannah. Tech jobs could dominate here. I mean Austin, Texas is blooming; Atlanta could become the same. Georgia could become an economic paradise. However the issue that remains is taxes. Our rate is a little high compared to Florida and Texas. We could fix that.

Should have said this earlier, but it's too late now for too many to see it. This is the busiest airport in the world (It's in Atlanta, GA). Keep that in mind when watching this and you will see how truly intricate this is considering no other airport in the ENTIRE world has this much air traffic.
