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…FlightViewContinental 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.
