FlightRadar24 – Realtime flight path tracking

Ever wondered where is that plane flying up in the sky above your head? Ever seen how any planes are there in the sky? Interested to find out where they are all flying, at what height and speed? Flightradar24 is your answer.

There is a very interesting web site – www.flightradar24.com  – that lets people of all ages hooked for hours and makes them coming back for more and more. The website shows flight information in real time, including the flight path, speed, type of the aircraft and some other information related to the flight.

Are your loved ones flying overseas? Now you can look them up by the flight number and see where they are in the sky in real time.

One thing to be mindful of, however. This website relies of a large army of about 1000 volunteers around the world with “ADS-B” radars connected to the internet and feeding the data to the website. These radar-receivers catch the flight data from the airplanes up in the sky and then transmit it to the web site over the Internet. Each radar covers only a certain area, so, if the power goes off at home for one of those volunteers, the coverage for that area will stop and the plane will disappear from the map until the power is restored.

There are some areas in the world that are still not covered – see this page for more information:  http://www.flightradar24.com/increase-coverage So, if you live in one of those areas, have a stable internet connection and wish to contribute to the project, a large army of website users will be forever grateful.
