Re: A milestone, surely

The last I read somewhere was, there are, at any given point in the day, about 43,000 planes in the air !

I recall someone saying that during the week when everything was grounded after 9/11, the number of planes on the ground in airports was about three times what it normally is, and that finding somewhere to park them all was problematic.
