Real-Time Flight Simulation


Real-time flight tracking website FlightRadar24 has added an awesome new Google Earth browser view that lets you view air-plane flights around the world in Google Earth.

Watching flights being tracked in real-time around the world on FlightRadar24's Google Map has always been a pretty amazing experience. The new Google Earth view now makes that experience supersonic.

To view a 3d model of a plane's flight in real-time just select one of the many plane markers on the live map. When the selected flight's details appear in the left hand side-bar click on the blue 'Aircraft view (BETA)' button at the bottom of the column. This opens a Google Earth window showing the plane in 3d and in real-time.

Awesome!

This has never been available on Planefinder.

Flightradar24 is the first and original tracking site since 2006.

Flightradar24 is awesome. Have tried Planefinder but it isn't half as good.

I don't get why Flight Radar is better? This is on planefinder which has better coverage?

Where does Planefinder have better coverage? All they have is fake coverage, aircraft moving in 30 minutes after lost coverage. FAKE!
