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.
