Flight tracking

My Mum and Dad are currently en route to Cape Town, via Amsterdam. I thought I’d use FlightRadar24 to follow their flight from Manchester to Schiphol. Here’s the situation over Europe right now. And yes, each of those yellow plan icons represents… er… a plane:

Hmm. They’re in there somewhere.

In other news, I’ve rediscovered my complete respect for Air Traffic Controllers and their systems. Wow.
