Love the tedium of an hours-long international flight but don’t have the impetus to leave your comfy computer chair? Then the 787 Dreamliner Flight Tracker is for you.
The desktop app allows you to select any traveling 787 from any airline around the world. It then displays the aircraft’s progress in real-time using a 3D model over the Google Earth browser plug-in.
The user has the option of a ‘360 view’ which shows the plane from any desired angle or the ‘passenger view’ which is just like flying, minus the turbulence and overpriced sandwich wraps.
It’s a great tool for people who don’t trust airlines to tell them whether or not a flight has been delayed. Give it a try here.
