Spying on the Spy Planes - Live

Last week Buzzfeed released an interactive map showing the flight-paths of FBI and Department of Homeland Security airplanes flying over the USA between mid-August to the end of December last year. Spies in the Skies is an animated interactive map which plots the flights of the FBI & DHS planes, showing where these planes were operating during those few months of last year.

If you want you can also spy on FBI planes in real-time. ADS-B Exchange's live real-time map of aircraft allows you to track FBI planes as they fly over U.S. cities in real-time. To view the planes go to ADS-B Exchange's Global Radar View and then follow these steps:
  • Select 'Menu
  • Select 'Options
  • Select the 'Filters' tab 
  • Click on the 'Interesting' check-button
When you select the 'interesting' filter the map only shows 'interesting' planes on the map. This includes FBI planes. For example, at the time of writing I can follow live an FBI Cessna flying all over north-east Baltimore.
