Where are you going?

Ever see a plane and wonder where it’s going or where it’s coming from? I do that all of the time, and guess what, there are app’s for that, and the one I use is called, Flightrader24. I don’t know anything more about the app or do I know its creator, but it’s really cool if you’re an aviation geek like myself or someone who just wants to know the who, what, and where, of an aircraft you see overhead.

You spot an aircraft in the sky, you can check the app and it will show you the city of origin, destination city, altitude, ground speed in knots, distance of the trip, when it left, it’s flight number, and type of aircraft.
