I'm wondering what online/software type of flight trackers people use. Is there one that you can get that if an a/c is flying overhead, I could go to my flight tracker and it would show me what type, operator, etc? I'd like to get a good one, just don't know whats out there besides the free ones I've found on the net.

It says on your profile you live in Minnesota, so it doesn't look like it will help you much. Anyway, here's all the airports you can monitor for free on their site:
