How I work – 44 – www.flightradar24.com
This week we look at a website which is, in a word, “awesome” This site captures live air traffic from around the world. It shows in great detail, the actual position of each flight which is in the air at any point of time, visually.
Flightradar24 combines data from several data sources and aggregates it together with schedule and flight status data from airlines and airports to create a unique flight tracking experience.
When you visit the website, you will be presented with a map, on which you will see an array of aircraft with their current, live positions. If you click on any aircraft, on the left panel, you will be presented with the Flight No., Source and Destination, Current altitude and speed, cockpit view (in 3D Mode) etc. etc. WOW ! What more can you ask for ? !
So, if you are tracking a flight online, for someone you care for, this is a great tool – worth referring to !
