I actually found it earlier this week, and it is pretty cool. I work some hundred meters from the city's airport (not a very busy one though) and it's a bit fun to watch the planes on flightradar24 and then to hear them fly over me in their approach!
Some flappy mirrors and lots of glass

Are you calling me a nerd? :wink:

OK, I have to admit as soon as it loaded, there was liner just taken off from the local airport and I went outside to check and there it was..... :oops:

I'm going to be looking at this all the time now!

Thanks for the link.

I have used it for some time and the in app purchases if you are using on iphone or iPad can help when your waiting for the A380s and B747s and Dreamliners to make there final aproach to land or when taxiing to take off.
