World-wide, the skies had a lot of airplanes in them before COVID-19. Not so much up there now.

So how big of a difference is it?

To be fair, the maps you are about to see do not show the actual size of the airplanes that fill our skies, obviously. So the images make it appear to be a real traffic jam up there, when in reality there have always been massive distances between each airplane.

Use this link to have a look at what the skies were like before, and during this pandemic. Each map has a sliding bar in the middle that you can move back and forth to see the before and after images.

So if all of those planes you see in the before picture are not there anymore, where are they parked? See those haunting videos here.
