ZRH ATC Real-Time Live Radar Right Here!

Thu Nov 29, 2007 10:54 pm

Evening all

My mum just gave me a call and sent me the following link:

http://radar.zhaw.ch/radar.html

It's real-time live ATC radar from ZRH and its surroundings (must be ZRH area control), you can see ZRH in- and outbound traffic aswell as overflying traffic. Currently there's not a lot going on, as it's close to midnight here, but it'll get busier again tomorrow! If you click on one of the planes, you'll get some more information (airline, speed, altitude, and in some cases, aircraft type, reg# etc)

Hope you guys enjoy it, I think it's brilliant.

Cheers
Sandro

PS: yes, I know i have a cool mum

That is really cool! You can even scroll the map by holding the left mouse button down, not sure yet how far a radius it covers but following LH576 into Italian airspace at the moment. Some flights has details of aircraft type and registration.
Added to my favourites.


Edit:The flight above disappeared between Lugano & Milan. So I guess it covers Switzerland.

Yup it covers Switzerland, some parts of Western France and Southern Germany. Pretty much ZRH area control's assigned airspace.

Pitty theres no coverage for the UK. I could sit for days then tracking flights over my house and looking up the flight details.

But for now I will happily sit for days now tracking flights over Sandro's house! Good find Sandro!

earlier there were some AF longhaul flights (77W, A332) some LH 747s and LX A343s around, plus some shorthaul fligths and lots of Cargo flights (mainly DHL)

There's a couple of BCS flights on the map currently, am I right in thinking that they are European Air Transport? I tried Googling one of the flight numbers (BCS7271) but just got some removed timetables and a link to girls gothic costumes?  confused 

Thanks

On an aside, and slightly-related note, Delta now uses an updated flight tracking utility on Delta.com, overlaying ACARS data onto a Google map.

For example, DL 56 is in-flight right now (at the time of this posting).

You have one in the Netherlands at http://www.atcbox.com/ but this is not free.

I will nominate it "The most useful thread of the Year"!

Following the advice of BT001, I clicked on

Quoting BT001 (Reply 19):
http://www.flygradar.nu/stockholm.php

and switched the radar to Gothenburg around 1pm.(local) this afternoon, and sure enough -no traffic into OSL.
There were 2 flights holding in a racetrack-pattern west of ENTO, I hadn't heard any planes passing by on approach to OSL all day ( they usually pass over my house at 3000' to 6000' but looking out the kitchen window all I could see was grey scud and snow flying horizontally by. Usually one can hear and watch the Ambulance-helicopters flying by, sometimes below the level of my place, but today they were absent too....

Coincidentally the area where our old airport (ENFB) was, enjoyed a 600'+ ceiling at the same time, but that was another battle....

GREAT thanks to Sandro  thumbsup  for starting this thread!
