There are about 61,000 people in planes over the U.S. at any given time on any given day

Thats the equivalent of having a sold out Chicago Bears game at Soldier field in the air above the United States at any given time. Duncan Aviation, an aircraft acquisition company, reports that there are about 61,000 people (Soldier Field has a capacity of 61,500) in planes above the U.S. at any given moment. That is a lot of people flying through the air!
