Here’s something a little different, and although not really weather related it’s interesting and good fun to see a selection of the current aircraft flights taking place across the UK and Europe. The functionality is really excellent. If you click on any of the planes then full details of the plane come up, and the trail of where the plane has come from is then highlighted on the map.

The screen will automatically update, and because the map is a Google overlay you can drag it about (simply hold the left button of your mouse down and drag) and zoom in and out. Try it!

We use a couple of data providers, so if for any reason the area below is blank of nor displaying correctly then please try this alternative
