    Skies above

    Have you ever wondered who or what is going over your head?
    well as I live on a flight path I often have a peep to see who is above me.

    Ian what a brilliant site and thank you, it will help me tracking planes we have arranged airport transfers for.

    Very interesting site!

    Is it only international flights or do I need to change a setting somewhere in order to see local flights?

    Think its local flights also cause when I saw the aeroflot going to HKT, there was a Thai Airways operated flight going from HKT to BKK.

    Talking bout planes...did any Brits watch Terror in the Skies on C4 last night. Fecking helll, the footage of some of the landings would make you think twice before boarding a plane. And these were no two-bob Phuket Air pilots, these were Lufthansa, KLM etc. Really interesting show.

    The landing of the Cebu pacific plane into Manila a couple of months ago was an absolute shocker.. Land HARD.. Bounce.. Had a 'left right' type wobble.. Land again.. and dump the front with a hell of a bang.. That or a ancient merpati air landing in Indo in the 90s probably my worst ever..

    I am not a nervous flyer but this made me think WTF..

    Blinking heck, don't go on this site today, there's planes all over the ferking place, flying above and below each other, heading straight at each other, not worried about bumpy landings, I am now worried about mid air collisions!!!

    Is there a Bermuda triangle style place off the coast of Samui?? I just went back on to this site, watched two planes coming towards Phuket close to Samui, hovered my little mouse jobby over the first one to get the flight number and when I did this to the second one it simply disappeared with no trace???? now if a plane is reported crashing into the sea off the coast of Samui at about 5.10pm this evening, hands up it was my fault!!!55555
