Here is a fun thing to try. Those on the iOS platform activate Siri (hold down the home button) and say, "What flights are overhead?"

Within a few seconds Siri will list the flights overhead based on your current geo location.

Aircraft type with flight number, altitude, and distance will be listed.

I heard this tip on the Ipad Today show and thanks to Rennan for this Siri tip.

I'm guessing this only works for aircraft equipped with ADS-B?
