Flights in the sky overhead

http://www.flightradar24.com/

It can zoom the map that is displayed and move by clicking on the arrows to bring up a region and a city. We then see all the planes passing overhead.
The map is updated automatically every 10 seconds.
If you click on a plane you see its way and on the left side of the screen, photograph, airports of departure and arrival, his company, speed, altitude, etc …
And if one looks up looking to the sky (if there are no clouds) we see that airplane go in reality!
