Seeing the growing number of ways we can see our world unfold around us is great fun. Things like Google's Earth, Maps and Streetview show us our world in a very accessible way. Enter the Australian Air Services - they have created a site that tracks the flights around all the main airports in the country. The new WebTrack aircraft tracker allows us to see all manner of info (noise included) about flights as they arc their way around the airport.
