US Air Traffic Flow - NASA Animation (video/quicktime Object)

NASA has put together a nice animation of air traffic flow over the US.

What I found interesting is the modification made to the geographic features of the US in order to better show the traffic patterns and reduce the overall clutter of the traffic west of the Mississippi. It almost looks like a cartogram of some form. But I would guess the distortion is more intentially done to adaquately portray specific regions and separate neighboring flight paths.
