Neat site for aviation buffs.

I find it curious that they don't show military aircraft, or General Aviation airfields... For some reason, Boeing Field is in but Renton Municipal (where the 737s are built) isn't.
Walt, there's a thing called BARR: "Block Aircraft Registration Request". It basically puts a three-day hold on that flight's data being public record--you can see it moving, but you can't get the numbers or who's on it until three days after landing.

It's a privacy measure as corporate counterintelligence for sensitive situations like dispatching executives to another firm's HQ for negotiations, but it's also used by celebrities and others with stalker problems.

And if I ever get my certs and start flying, I intend to use it to the fullest at every opportunity. :)
