Keywords: large data ; data visualization ; JMP

Over two decades of airline flight data for the Raleigh-Durham International airport (RDU) are examined. Visualizing the data reveals that there are multiple phases of air traffic activity at RDU, corresponding to the transition from being an American Airlines hub airport to being a non-hub airport serving a greater variety of airlines. The changing patterns involve the daily number of flights as well as the locations of the reciprocal flights flying in and out of RDU. Analysis of arrival and departure delay data is also presented.
