    This is a graphic of all of the 737s in the air over America at 9:30 am Sunday morning. It will look like this most of the day. Makes you wonder how the authorities can

    1. Keep track of them all
    2. Screen each passenger
    3. Provide enough fuel(the 737 burns 1,000 gallons an hour)
    4. keep them from running into each other

    There are about 550,000 on the "no-fly list". All one needs to do is confirm someone's identity before boarding. If you can't be identified, you don't fly.

    Umm if those 737 icons were a matching scale with the map they would not be visible.
    And if they are on a matching scale with them map then 737's are larger than the city of houston.
