    It'll wear off believe me!

    Lot of wrong info there as the pilot has to manually input the details of the flight and a lot don't.

    Also a lot of holes due no radar.

    Interesting though and is scary to see how many flights at one time over south east England.

    That's a fraction of the aircraft in the air!

    In Europe it's only showing aircraft equipped with ADS-B transponders.

    I believe that flights under 3000ft do not require that a flight plan be lodged and unless you enter specific areas, there is no requirement to contact ATC.

    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    I often fly above this but as its non-commercial I dont need to log as such and am not allowed near controlled airspace for obvious reasons (PA32) I didnt even know this site existed, the kids are mesmerised :)

    Some glitches in it though. Saw a 777 'crash' over the pacific the other week. Altitude went from 40,000ft to 0 in around 5 minutes then it disappeared from the screen!

    I have no idea what's going on here.
  • You like aircraft? You might also like ships, shows the traffic lanes off the south coast well. :D

    They've finished! :cry:

    I'm having to watch grass grow instead. It's pretty good, but nothing like paint drying :(
