A LIVE radar screen - for flights landing at London Heathrow Airport.
Touch the screen to find out about each flight:
- Airport info and flight numbers
- Time of arrival
- World route map and compass bearing
- What's the weather there right now?
To make it more fun:
- Live compass on the radar display
- Control tower radio talk sound effects (not real time)
- Airplane landing sound effects
The app uses LIVE data that is updated constantly by the airlines - very occasionally including slight anomalies. So don't bet the farm (or your car park time limit) on the accuracy please!
Sep 2012: Corrected a minor bug that affected only countries that use a comma in decimal numbers.
Nov 2012: [Ben, Mark] - the bug you found is now fixed. It was concerned with a new airport route on the Heathrow Arrivals Website, that had the word 'via' not only in the middle like CASABLANCA VIA TANGIER, but ALSO as part of one of the words: MONROVIA VIA FREETOWN. This confused the server software.
