Flying Bing Airlines
MondoWindow is a great Bing Maps based application which allows you to follow along with any flight. If you are on a Wi-Fi connected flight you can load MongoWindow and view your plane's position on a Bing map. Using the application you can find out where you are and what you are flying over.
The map shows your plane's position over an oblique view of the terrain which the plane is flying over. Map markers on the map reveal points of interest on your flight route with links to Wikipedia articles and photos from Flickr.
Of course you don't need to be actually on a flight yourself to use MondoWindow. Open up the application and you have the option to enter a flight number or follow along with a random flight.
