In Flight by Kiln

"In flight" is a live data-driven interactive documentary created by Kiln for the Guardian to mark the centenary of commercial aviation. It combines a cutting-edge real-time interactive map of global air traffic over the past 24 hours (the first created with truly global live schedule information) with an exploration of passenger aviation's origins and its potential future in the context of growing concern about oil use and climate change.

The project is in four chapters, each of which can be "watched" like a video or explored interactively – an approach made possible by Talkie, Kiln's own open-source JavaScript library. It is fully responsive and works on all modern devices.
