    I just found this airline flight tracker web site and it's great. The more you play with it the more features you'll find. I downloaded the app (2.99) and it's great also. You can point your smart phone at a plane in the sky and it will tell you what airline, where it's from and where it's going to. I love it.

    Mike, I just went outside to check and there's a bunch of water droppers because of the fire we're having in the foothills and it just gives the planes statistics.

    Our house is located under the LAX inbound flight pattern and my neighbors must think I'm crazy with me running outside and pointing my phone to the sky.

    It's really early in the morning there right now. Wait till around 9AM when there are more flights going in/out of Addis Ababa (ADD). Plenty of flights considering Ethiopia has a national carrier, Ethiopian Air.
