ok, for the seriously hardcore geeks out there. Track my flight in Google Earth!
First, if you don’t have it installed, go to http://earth.google.com and install Google Earth.
Then, hit this link
you will see an live tracking of my flight when it takes off (around 4:10 PM CST)
It will update once a minute. Pretty dang cool if you ask me.
I love it on the site, it says “FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. NOT TO BE USED FOR IN-FLIGHT NAVIGATION.”
Yeah, I’m flying my plane, with a satellite Internet connection, with Google Earth, and using it to track where I am, man, I don’t need the gauges and what not, I have Google to tell me where to go!!……..crash 🙂
Pretty sweet thing, its crazy what you can do these days.

Yes, for the very serious geeks out there…indeed. Have a safe flight and a blast out there!
So I’m checking it now (2 days later) but all I see is the MSP pushpin. I’m guessing it doesn’t track your flight history?
no I dont think it does. I am guessing that if you did have it open while it was in flight, that you could then save it in google earth as a route and see the history.
[…] I am at the PDX airport right now waiting for my flight, NW 598 – if you are bored today, use Google Earth and track my flight! (I have blogged about this before) Heading back to MN for the week, 21st-29th. Should be a good time. Going to Nickelback on Monday, hanging with friends the rest of the week, heading up the Iron Range at the end of the week. My dad finally got high speed, wow, 2007… […]
