Traffic line up


#1


Hello, Just about every evening about this time in Arizona I get this line up of aircraft. I am located @ 7200 ft. in the white mountains of N.E. Arizona about 190 miles N.E. of Phoenix. I am assuming this is just the normal flight pattern in my area of sky here ?

They get arranged like that by the air traffic controllers in Phoenix. If you click on the planes you will see that they are spaced on vertical.


#3

The line is even longer over the Atlantic, after the last contact with Gander ATC.
