  • Airplanes! View them worldwide...

    I came across this a couple of days ago and found it fascinating. I put it on another forum but thought I'd share it here also.


    This is absolutely real time.

    Have you ever wondered where that plane flying over head is going and What type of aircraft? Every day you see planes in the sky, sometimes very high, with or without con-trails. We often ask ourselves these Questions: What type of plane, Airbus A320,330, Boeing 727, 747 or Some other manufacturer.

    Where did it come from, where is it going, what altitude, what speed, What airline, etc.. Well, now you can see all this information Instantly on your laptop screen. I just watched the plane whose vapor Trail I could see over head, on my laptop, and was blown away by all The information and also the view. 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 air traffic
    Controller is one very, very busy person.

    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 various airport air Traffic management people see for planning purposes. Some additional 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. When you Click on a airplane, on the left screen you will get all the Information related to; airline, plane type, air speed, altitude in Real time that is re-calculated every 10 seconds. On some you can also Click on view from the cockpit.

                That's cool... I live close to the airport and can track the planes flying in and out... if only I were on one headed out.

                  Another option

                  Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

                    Good find. I tried one of the other ones a couple months ago to take some pics of the plane a friend was coming in on (I live under a bridge near the airport), and found it had a significant delay, causing me to miss the pic. This one says 'live' vs. delayed FAA data... and it seems true. I can hear an airplane when there's one on the map near me . Gotta check it a bit better during the day sometime. Thanks for the link!

                        To make it even better, after you pick a region on flightradar, pull open another tab and go to You can then listen air traffic control (ATC) talk to them while watching on the flightradar tab! The brighter yellow planes on flightradar are realtime, so when you hear ATC talk, they will respond and then you'll see the airplane turn

                        If you go to the new york area, pull open JFK (KJFK) airport or La Guardia (KLGA) airport and listen to the links titled tower or final to hear the planes being brought into the airport.
