Is There A Worldwide 'FlightAware?'

Many of us use and love FlightAware for the information it provides. But once an airliner leaves our airspace (going to Europe, for example) we lose track of it on FlightAware.

Are there any other worldwide 'FlightAware'-like web sites that pick up where our own FlightAware leaves off?

Some (many?) other countries don't allow retransmission of data that give aircraft positions. Others don't have the tracking infrastructure, or people with the equipment.

There are sites that rely on volunteers streaming their SBS or ACARS data to servers, or there are individuals with their own sites.

www.openatc.com is one that tends to show aircraft over the UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland and shows the tracks on google earth.

It's illegal in the UK to retransmit the data though personal use of the SBS receivers seems to be tolerated.
