Veins & Capillaries

Imagine if more of these bursts were high speed rail and intercity rail instead of airplanes.

Then check out all these flights up the Northeast Corridor from Atlanta.

And that second video doesn't even cover the incredible amount of thru traffic in north Georgia skies. Up here in Chattanooga, this is the time of year (clear icy skies) where, between 9:30 and 11:30am, you can have a lot of fun laying on your back watching all the contrails go by.

There's a reason that Chattanooga and Atlanta were both big rail centers (and still are [especially Chattanooga], to a lesser extent, for modern freight rail). Perhaps they will be major passenger hubs again one day.
