WHere have you been? I've been using this (even on this site) for years!  

BTW, just want to give a LOT of credit to Karl Schwarts who created those sites.

I have been fascinated (for the last few months) at the amount of high altitude flights that I have photographed (on airliners.net) over Boston. Now I can kind of guess where they departed in the USA. Thanks for posting these Great Circle web sites!!

Well DLX, Tappan didn't know about this site. How come you didn't tell him, if you've been using it for years? And based upon all the questions about ETOPS, I gather that many others don't know either. That's where I come in.
