Amidst the current controversy of disappearance of Malaysian Airline flight MH370 I was researching on how to track live stat for flights and I found two very useful resources. These websites are quite useful if you want to track the live position of someone’s flight you are waiting for. They also tell about some very useful and technical information about flight such as speed and altitude. Try these website yourself and be amazed.
Once you search for a flight with its Flight No. Planefinder tells you flight’s Registration no., Altitude, Speed, Route, Course, Squawk etc. It lays out the flights location on Google map and shows nearby flights as well.To search a plane on planefinder you need to know the flight no. Simply click on Map Option on top right of page and enter flight no.
Flightradar24. When you search Altitude, Vertical speed, Speed, Track, Latitude, Longitude, Radar, Squawk information is displayed along with flights’s real time map on Google map.
