The Guardian has an interactive map and short photo documentary about the history of air travel. It’s brief, and quite interesting. You can, for instance, find out that in 1918, only about 5,000 people flew in one year. Can you guess the number in 2011? Watch the third part of the documentary (“A Century of Growth”) to find out.
