Top website to track a flight
Created for aviation buffs, flightaware.com is also remarkably consumer-friendly: Just plug in an airline and flight number, and it’ll show you on a live, animated map exactly where the plane is. It also has great weather updates and a function that allows you to type in an airport code and see all the flights that are coming and going. Just for fun: Want to see every Boeing 737 in the air over the United States? Look it up here. The service area is limited to the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and the United Kingdom. If you’re tracking a flight originating from outside those places, Flightaware will pick it up only when it enters the area.
