Flight Radar Map now on the Maps site
« on: June 02, 2012, 14:20:51 pm »
http://www.fuerteventura-maps.com/flight-radar.asp :

[img=right]http://www.fuerteventura-maps.com/images/flightradar.png[/img=right]The Fuerteventura Flight Radar Map - courtesy of Flightradar24.com - is a useful tool for monitoring a flight's progress.

Clicking on a flight's wee symbol on the map will open a panel on the left.

The panel contains much useful information about the selected flight including the airline, source and destination, type of aircraft, registration, hex, altitude, speed, position and info for specialists such as the hex, squawk, and radar numbers.

The selected flight's route will also be shown on the map itself. Zoom out if necessary to trace the route.

Brilliant  piece of kit this you can track flights from take off to landing it saves you hours sitting at the airport ie i watch the flights go by chip monk mountain then take a steady ride to airport to pick up also a god sent when flights are late as you can see where the are. the flights use the same flight code every flight to fue for that day of week so if you meet family of the same day flight keep a note of the flight code ie Thomas cook has left East Mids for fue you can track its progress type in the search box TCX91DH

Much more reliable than the aena website for flight time arrivals, you can actually see the plane land and only a 10 minute spin to Fuerte airport from Caleta[:D]

Cancel that, it has either gone into stealth mode, or was mis reported.[:)]

Bloody typical!! We are flying to Fuerte today so I thought I would track the Rhodes flight, thats where the plane goes first, and it is not showing up.
Looks like a strongish headwind as well on the way down so it will probably be a 4h 15/20m flight. [:(]

I always use this one and think its very good.  You can change the view from Typical map to Satellite View and even see the plane landing on the runway.

Try it and see: http://planefinder.net/
