Flight tracking data company FlightAware put together what it’s calling a “data visualization” of aircraft flights in the path of totality during Monday’s solar eclipse.
The company said in an e-mail to The Eagle that it tracked more than 2,700 flights traveling through the path at the time of the eclipse.
FlightAware also said regional airports near the path of totality saw a 60 percent increase in traffic compared with the week before.
