    Thought this was pretty interesting. I didn't know civilians could track aircraft like this.

    Aye, it's good indeed. I think someone posted about it when the storms were
    pretty bad, a while back.

    Just saw this and when I went on there was a ryanair flight about to pass over my house roughly. Went outside when I saw on the map it was directly overhead and I could hear it :) Pretty accurate :)

    Strange that the Malaysian plane can't be found with this info available.

    The map might look small on your desktop but the reality is this aircraft was lost over the ocean.

    It's last known position is all that we know.

    been using their iPhone App for ages now. Cool little thing and handy for tracking people coming home that you are picking up, or for just trying to figure out where that plane going over your house is going to :)
