Abu Dhabi to Fort Worth, Texas Flight Path

This graphic shows the path of a flight from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to Fort Worth, Texas, USA. The top graphic shows how the flight appears as it is tracked on a globe map. The bottom graphic shows how the flight path would look on a flat earth map. As you can see, the flight path on the ball earth map appears to take a strange northern loop and pass unnecessarily over land in the high northern latitudes. Why not just go in a straight line? On the flat earth map, however, the flight path going over land in the northern latitudes makes perfect sense, as it is a straight line from point A to point B.

  1. This can be easily explained, and I hope you realize the disservice you are doing to Flat Eartherism.

    You drew the flight paths on a FLAT MAP of the globe – he Mercator projection. If you take an ACTUAL GLOBE and trace the path on it, you’ll find it will be PERFECTLY STRAIGHT.
