On the Web: Boeing Flight Tracker

** The Boeing Flight Tracker shows airplane
activity around the world.**

If you're fascinated by anthills,** Boeing's new flight tracking system** is definitely for you. The Boeing Flight Tracker shows Boeing airplane activity around the world during a 24-hour period based on data provided by OAG (Official Airline Guide). The displayed flights are not in real time. The current data is based on information collected in February. But it's interesting to watch as the concentration of flight activity moves from the Asian region to Europe and eventually to the United States. And it's mind blowing to consider that all the tiny yellow dots are all heavy airliners, each carrying large amounts of people.

The flight tracker shows Boeing airplanes that are currently in production, 737s, 747s, 767s and 777s, with the exception of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which will be added at a later date. You can choose to see all Boeing airplanes simultaneously or each model separately. It's as mesmerizing as watching the flames of a fire.
