These are some interesting sites I came across.
The first site is a live radar site of all the aircraft currently in the air around the world.
It allows you to isolate any of the aircraft and gives you its identification, destination, airspeed and point of origin.
I've used this in the past to see a plane approaching my home overhead and was able to go outside and be in position to observe it before it was
visible or heard.
The exception to all this is military craft.
They will sometimes give some info about the aircraft but often just an icon on the map is all you get.
Check it out sometime.
The next two sites are for ships at sea.
I won't go into detail for these.
It is basically similar to the aircraft sites in regard to functionality.
Here are the marine sites:
Marine Traffic Global
Ship Location map
I guess these are useful in tracking how far from port your mother-in-laws cruise ship may be.
They are interesting sites.
