Track a live flight on Google Maps this Sunday

Check this site on Sunday at 10 AM EDT to catch "Captain Dan" in his one hour flight to test his live, real-time Google Maps flight tracking system. Here is an excerpt from his blog:

"..I've rigged up a real-time flight tracking system using a GPS receiver, my PowerBook, Google Maps, and liberal quantities of tape and string."

Dan had originally hoped to fly from Indianapolis to Saginaw Michigan, but instead will take a short one hour flight within Indiana, due to some bad weather. It should be interesting to watch. His departure time will be 10AM - check here to reference the local time in Dan's location and here to track the live flight take off. Switch over to this page to watch his journey home. Good Luck Dan!
