Real Time Brisbane Planes on Google Maps

The Brisbane Flight Tracker is a real-time Google Map showing the location of aircraft over Brisbane Australia.

The flight data for the map is captured by a private ADS-B receiver which picks up the location of flights landing and taking off at Brisbane Airport. The data is at most 20 seconds delayed and at best there is a delay of only a few seconds.

The markers for each plane display the aircraft's identification number, current altitude and an arrow showing if the aircraft is ascending or descending.
