I don't know the answer either, but I will also ask how many of those planes could be flying at the same time ? I imagine that it can vary a lot, deppending on the date, hour, etc, but just to know an average number.

Then there is the issue of planes cycling registration for all kinds of, usually illegal, purposes.
I had a screen saver which I downloaded from staralliance.com which simulated real-time aircraft movements across the star network. That alone looked like a xmas tree, I can't even begin to imagine what a mess the app would have been if it included all known flights.

I'd be interested in seeing a total commercial jet fleet broken down by country if anyone has those figures - I know the US has the biggest fleet (something like 1/4 of the total), but I wonder which countries follow.
