F 18

Interesting F-18 activity out of Key West - KNQX


#2

Interesting. Usually, military aircraft are not shown.

FYI: It makes it easier for others reading your post ifyou make a link out of the page you are talking about. It opens up in new window. To do this, enter followed by the link (http://flightaware.com/live/airport/KNQX in this case) followed by ] and the name of the page (e.g. KNQX) followed by: Key West NAS (NQX)

Actually, just being lazy, Pike. I like to keep the forum open in its own tab. If there’s a link I can click, then I don’t have to open a new tab to go to the link because clicking on the link opens a new tab for me. Know what I mean, Vern?

(Tabs, for those of you out there with the inferior browser called Internet Explorer 6, are a built-in feature of Firefox.)

Now provided in the IE7 Beta.

Leave it to Bill Gates to steal what he can’t develop on his own.

I tried the IE7 Beta. It really screwed up my machine. Luckily I have the restore feature turned on in Windows XP.


#7

I’ve got it running on one of my machines in order to provide support for clients. But my primary laptop (T41p) is IE free, I’ll stick with Firefox for now.

Fwiw, KNQX is a very interesting map to expand to full screen. Why? Because you’ll see a lot of flights with ID blocks but no aircraft type indicated. Those are flights not actually tracked by FA. They have left from non-U.S. airports and no departure message has been generated. Typically, those flights will not show up on FA until after they have landed and an arrival message is created. Still, you can look at flight histories and see, for instance, that CUB718 is ‘scheduled’ and ought to be en-route Havana/Montreal. USA718 is ‘scheduled’ and ought to be en route Cancun/Philadelphia.

The only place you can really follow flights like these is on the expanded ‘airport activity’ map. KNQX is a good place to start!

Firefox is a fine one indeed. They can also be enjoyed in Apple’s Safari. Thanks, God bless.

Tabs in Avant also.

Ah, yes…Macs…

We are going to act like we are superior to all others…uh oh, you mean our G5 processor isn’t catching on??? Crap…Macs…we run on the same processors (kinda) as other Intel comps, but we still think we are superior…

Opera also has tabs. In version 9, when you close a tab, it goes to the trash so you can retrieve it later. Still playing around with it so I can’t tell yet if it’s just as good as Firefox.
