Live Airplane Tracking

Fri Sep 14, 2001 9:57 am

On many US news TV channels they are showing a tracking program which shows the many airplanes in flight and where they are going in real time over US airspace. (They are trying to show the difference between a normal days operation of flights and today, Thurs.)

Is this available on the web? Can we view this program as well?
thanks,
Raven

There is also another website you can try, but the FAA has suspended live tracking until further notice,

I have a great program called Flyte Trax 2001. It does everything that the web ones do and more. It was down for tuesday and wednesday, but it's back up now and tracking 1658 flights as i am typing this. There's a 15 day trial for it right now...
http://www.flytecomm.com/index.html
from the same company which provides Webtrax

Oh yeah i don't know if anyone saw the segment on ABC i think it was, where they were tracking ANA001, and flights over NY, well i turned on FlyteTrax and did the same thing in real time.... it was pretty cool.
