Our daughter Carol-Ann had to fly up from Sydney to Brisbane for work for a couple of days. We picked her up on Friday night and she spent a night with us. Tonight we took her back to the airport for her flight back to Sydney. This gave me a chance to try out http://www.flightradar24.com/
It's a web site where you can view any airplane up there in the sky flying anywhere in the world.
Here's Carol's flight:

Flightradar 24 is a lot of fun chasing planes all around the globe. Check out the traffic over the USA:
At other times you can't see the map from all the planes in the air, especiall over London between 6 and 8am in the morning in the UK.
Try it, have fun...
