This is just way too cool. If you have the Google Earth application installed on your PC, there are some interesting 'add-ons' you can use with it. Examples include US chart overlays, air traffic at some Class Bravo airports, and a 3D representation of the US airspace.  Below is what I am looking at right now, with the 3D blocks and Boston traffic enabled. Then I have the liveatc Boston Approach feed running in the background for the full picture.

Make sure to use the 'tilt' feature. Have fun!

That is incredible.  Thanks for the heads-up.

This is amazingly accurate. The hi-res photo used by Google actually has a plane short final for 33L, which lines up nicely with this FedEx flight.

Yeah this is awesome.

I wonder if there is something similar for Canadian Airspace?

Pretty cool ad-on for Google Earth! How did you get that dome thing to show up at Boston?

Is the traffic live or is there a delay?
