Travel Website of the Week: PlaneFinder

Plane Finder
This will be an aviation lover’s new favorite bookmark. This website/app is mindboggling as it displays almost every commercial scheduled flight in near real time. Zoom in or out of the Google map and click on any of the thousands of airborne planes from around the world to see its flight stats, arrival and destination locations. The coolest part is that users can filter by altitude, speed or airline. You can even search by location, flight number, call sign or aircraft registration. Plane Finder tracks all this information by picking up the ADS-B data transmitted by aircraft and received by ground base stations. Not all aircrafts are equipped with them yet and according to their website, Europe is currently well ahead of the U.S. in this field.
