Over the past years I have been 'collecting' a whole bunch of nice aviation tools on the internet, mostly to look up data on flights I have taken in the past for my logbook. There is a bunch of goodies out there, and unfortunately many of them are unknown to many people.
Let us all share our favourite most-useful aviation sites!
PLEASE: Only browser-based applications/sites, no programs.
Also PLEASE: only free of charge, no services that you have to pay for.
Also PLEASE: give a direct link to the part of the site where the tool is, not just the main page!
Also PLEASE: add a little description!
Here are mine:
1) Great Circle Mapper
Graphically displays routes between any two or more airports, along with distance, etops and several other useful information. http://gc.kls2.com/
7) Live and Past Traffic on select USA airports
Very neat tool, you can research back to 2004 and see exact movements at any hour/minute. Must be a huge data inventory... http://www.passur.com/sites.htm
There is a site somewhere which lists all the movements of BA and some other airlines at Heathrow. Useful for finding the tail reg of a specfic flight on a specific date. Can I find it? No! If somebody can point me to it I would be grateful...
