Awesome Google Maps Flight Tracker

FlightRadar24.com

Flightradar24.com shows live aircraft traffic in the airspace above Europe in real-time on Google Maps. The map shows all aircraft equipped with an ADS-B transponder.

By clicking on a plane you can view detailed information about the plane, flight and current speed and position. A track of the flight path of the plane is also shown. The colour of the trail behind the plane differs depending on the altitude the aircraft had at that position.
