    Default Aircraft tracker

    Hi, Someone at work showed me this app on his flash phone.
    It is "radar tracker 24" I put it on my PC and was amazed by
    the detail. Just wondering who else has tried it.

    Good find. Just trying it now. I'm in a animated cockpit of a Virgin Australia Boeing 737 which is going to land at Wellinton in real time. It is just passing over Farewell Spit at 36,000 Ft.

    Here's the world's aircraft tracked over 24 hours.

    WORLD AIR TRAFFIC

    Interesting to watch the traffic patterns how they follow daylight and the flow of commerce.

    Here's a better one of the North Atlantic. You can see the aircraft converging on Europe for start of business, then leaving in the afternoon to get to the US in daylight.
