Plane flight Paths in Real Time

This is neat. It shows you the planes around the airport closest to you.

Where they are coming from and where they are going.

An interesting program, click on the plane for more info.

That's pretty cool, especially if you pan out enough that you can see all of North America. It's kind of surprising how little air traffic there is in Mexico!

What's more interesting is how few planes are flying in hugely populated countries like China or India. India has less planes flying than Ontario - with god knows how much more population.

Boy, am I glad to be living in a such prosperous country like Canada.
