Help Needed With Flight Tracking

Sat Nov 01, 2003 12:07 pm

My mom is flying tonight from SCL to MEx and then on to MTY on AM. Anybody can link me to a flight tracking (free) software I could use to track her progress thorugh the night?

I'd appreciate your help

Thanks OPNLguy, but it only deals with flights from the USA and CAnada.

Try a google.com search for "flight tracking" and maybe one of the others will do it...

Try this one...... I looked up your Mom's flight and it had it listed. I've used another one that had almost every airline in the world...but I don't recall it now.

Indeed, using the Random Flight actually brings up some oddballs - right now I'm looking at Azurra Air 8658 from Belfast to Milan, and it has 33 minutes to go! Not exactly US or Canada, is it? Big grin

That's soooo cool!
I clicked on "Random Flight", and they gave me LH8188 FRA-ORD, which is CARGO! It's in mid atlantic right now.
Strange, though: It's cruising at 554 mph, but at 0 feet altitude! Well, I guess, if you only have LD3 pallets and no passengers, nobody will notice.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
