Airplane radar

Have you ever wondered where that plane flying over head is going and what type of aircraft?

I just watched on my laptop the plane whose vapor trail I could see over head and was blown away by all the information and also the view.

This is definitely a keeper.

You are also going to be totally blown away when you see how many aircraft are flying in your area...

I can now see why an aircraft traffic controller is one very, very busy person.

Planes in Flight...

If you can get this working for you it will tell you who is flying and where they are going.

Here is a note to help you get more out of your visit to this site.
These are all the aircraft in the air right now.

In the left hand column, there is a box called "planes."

The number in the box is the number of aircraft airborne.

This view is what the traffic management people see for planning purposes at the various airports.

Every day you see planes in the sky, sometimes very high..with or without con-trails.

Some tricks; Drag the map to take you to the area you want to view To view your region or town, you can zoom in by tapping with your mouse.

On the map you will see all the planes in the air.  Click on a airplane, and on the left screen you will get all the info:  airline, type, speed, altitude in real time, re calculated every 10 seconds.
On some you can also click on a view from the cockpit.
