Google Earth, Track My Flight!

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

http://www.fboweb.com/antest/ge/geOFNF.aspx?pp=51902740

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.
