Many of us view today as the vernal equinox, the start of spring in the northern hemisphere, but for people in the southern hemisphere today is the autumnal equinox, the beginning of autumn except in countries including Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand which align their seasons with the Gregorian calendar and thus started autumn at the beginning of March.
Today's Featured Map, contributed by a user of the Great Circle Mapper, shows regularly scheduled long-distance southern oceanic flights over about six hours in duration, which translates to a minimum of about 5,000 km or 2,700 nm. To compile the data, he used FlightAware with likely pairs of airports. Many of these flights are ones where you are more likely to see an iceberg than another aircraft!
