No problem. Yesterday I saw the AA171 flying from EBBR to KJFK.

U don't even need to download the file! Just click on it and it opens google earth automatically! zoom in and u'll see purple lines representing planes flightpaths!

My question is: Is it actually real? I mean checked out JFK yesterday evening and I thought that there were strangely not that many aircrafts after all! It was at about 10PM Belgium time so would have assumed that there would be what about 20 to 30 planes around JFK!

Cool tool though thanks for sharing :)
