Tracking USA bound flights in real time on online maps was never this easy. Thanks to Google for adding a new layer to Google Earth that let us track all the flights flying high in the skies of USA, in the near real time.
To track flights, just download a KML file from and add it to Google Earth. You will be presented with awesome information of flights with their current location mapped in real time. By hovering on a flight icon, you can see flight number, airline, expected arrival time and up to the date path. That’s cool isn’t it?
The fun does not end with this. If you love to simulate the journey of a flight on Google Earth, you can download KML tour file of any time and replay it.
Google made this fun layer on Google Earth with the help of information provided by FlightWise.com.
