SFO Spotters/Members, Live Radar Tracker Aviable

Sun Mar 19, 2006 4:47 pm

Hello all,

Was surfing through the San Francisco International Airport Webpage and found a really cool flight tracker for aircraft in the SFO area. Shows speed and alt. along with live time updates as the aircraft moves along. Much faster than but only for the SFO area. Few screen shots for those who want to see before clicking. Warning, it does freeze up if you are not patent with it.

Thanks again!

This has been around for a while already. When I mean a while, it means at least 2 years. Enjoy!

By the way, I don't know if anyone has noticed, but if you walk towards Terminal 1 at Terminal 2. Near the "tunnel" to terminal 1, on the left, there is an office with windows which you can see inside. Inside it, there are a big computer screen with a 3-D flight tracker. Has anyone seen it? Do you know how I can get it?

None of these 'live' trackers are actually real-time.

This one is delayed by at least 10 minutes, as noted on the webpages.

Now...for real, live, real-time radar, checkout

It picks up transponder signals. show live tracks for all ADS_B equipped aircraft.

I'd rather be on the ground wishing I was in the air, than in the air wishing I was on the ground!
