where you can see which flight is over your head and also its route.
This morning I had a flight from Moscow to Puna Cana (which I never heard about)
Ignorant about folowing expressions. Can anybody help me?
ETA - V/S- - Hex - Squawk
the UA900´s route from Los Angelses to Frankfurt this morning
Left Los Angeles flew to HudsonBay turned back to ND flew over to MT and back again to Hudson Bay. Why circle like that? And it landed only one minute late in Frankfurt.
ETA means estimated time of arrival. UA900 means United Airlines flight number 900. I am as clueless as you about the other abbreviations.
Left Los Angeles flew to HudsonBay turned back to ND flew over to MT and back again to Hudson Bay.
The abbreviations here mean North Dakota and Montana. I have no clue why they flew in that pattern, although i suspect it was on instruction from air traffic control. Those boys have an aversions to airplanes occupying the same space at the same time.
Thank you -
When I see all the airplanes in the air on the same time I am glad I am not an air traffic controller.
