Hey there are so many flight tracking systems, so we can't help it...
And also,terrorists can just look at the timetables.

i dont think im going to try google earth again, because when i first tried it and installed it, i loved it, but when i uninstalled it, i realized that google earth stole and never gave back 3 GB of space. so, i dont want to try it again because i am afraid that it will use up some moe of my space and never give it back.

I d/l'd google earth. Wow, has it improved since the last version I tried.

Since the VA I'm with uses KLAX as a hub, this is very educational for me. Also, having the KLAX frequencies is hadny as I have a scanner. And, the availability of sectional charts all in the same place is fantastic.

Very good stuff

My patience has been rewarded...!!! Google Earth works great...!!! I was hoping that this would be added. I am going to download this tonight. As far as Google earth leaving a 3 GB hole in you hard drive...??? It depends on how you uninstalled it. If you go through the program its self it will take 99 % of it away. Make sure that you have admin reights and or go into Safe Mode. of course that depends on what O/S you have to.
