When I mouse over an aircraft in the graphical flight tracker it displays 3 lines of data. The middle line contains a sequence of numbers. What is the significance of those numbers?
Altitude in thousands of feet (so to speak). Example 360 = 36000’ (FL360) then speed in knots.
The first number is altitude in hundreds of feet followed by a ^ or v if it’s climbing or descending; the second number is the groundspeed in knots.
Quoted for eternal shame.
What? That airplane could be at 360,000 feet!

No more drinking at lunch for me! (That’s my story and I am sticking to it)
