PetaPixel points us to a pretty cool timelapse created by photography and film professor Cy Kickenbaker. It shows every airplane that came in to San Diego International Airport between 10:30am and 3pm on November 23, 2012. It really shows you just how much air travel we do.

Kuckenbaker states, "With an even blue background it’s fairly easy to key out each airplane and put them together. The bridge in this shot is an added time lapse under the 1st Street bridge in San Diego. I was really surprised by two things: the number of planes that landed in 4 hours (close to 70) and the dominance of Southwest Air."
