FlightAware – Know the exact location of a plane

FlightAware AnimationOne of the most best time killers on a flight is the little display that shows you exactly where in the world your flight is.  FlightAware provides this same information but puts it on the web for anyone who might need to track a flight.  Want to know where your loved ones are as they fly to and from home?  It’s really simple, you just put in the flight number and it takes you to a nifty little map that includes a time remaining counter.  Stuck in the airport and the desk tells you your plane is delayed?  Pull up the flight information and find out how close the plane is!  The picture above is another feature, you can track the flights around an airport.  I was bored so I threw together an animation of about 10 minutes that you can see if you click the above thumbnail.  As you can see…

A plane approaches and lands at GSP (I’m about 5 minutes away from there).  All flights inbound and outbound are blue, the green ones are for other airports.  Registering for the site will allow you to get electronic updates on your flights by several different methods and allows a few other nifty features.  FlightAware has done some really interesting things with the data they have available I really love sites like this.
