My dad is coming to visit for Thanksgiving…as a matter of fact, his plane lands in about 25 minutes. I just now discovered a really cool web application…FlightView. Continental Airlines uses it. Basically, it will show you the location of the plane in pretty much real-time. Continental’s site even shows the estimated arrival time, etc…all updated to the minute: Check Flight Status and Gate Information. FlightView’s website shows everything from current elevation to ground speed to estimated time to arrival. Check it out at flightview.com.
