Found this site.. bascially you can track any flight via a clickable map. You can also search by Airline, Plane Type etc all in real time.

At the moment is only US flights, though you can see some QF flights as they pass over US soil.

Nice site bambbbam2.

With all those red dots over the US it's a wonder planes don't bump into each other a little more often!

I was on one of those dots flying into and out of Chicago last week. Imagine if they flew straight instead of all those circles they have to do!!!

Interesting looking at QF107.

At the time of posting, it is showing two tracks and it has arrived. :shock:

If you look closely you can see it is yesterday's.

Being 2 flights (one into LAX and other LAX-JFK) confuses the software I think - get similar odd results on NZ1/2 and other flights that stop en-route without change of flight number.

The second "track" is just a straight line from when it first entered US airspace to final destination at JFK.
