This is my first post as a FlightAware member. I stumbled across this site while trying to figure out where the air traffic over my house is going (and it’s been hours of fun so far).
In fact, I think I’ve figured out the route that I live under, but I’m not exactly sure and I was wondering if anyone here can help. I’m located in Northborough, MA – about 35 miles almost due west of Boston.
I’m pretty sure that UAL915 went right over my house earlier. On the “Route” line for that flight it says:
EVX UT300 SENLO UN502 JSY UN160 LIZAD
UL739 MABUG UL739 SOMAX NATG 5000N
02000W NATG CARAC N38E WHALE BOS J77 SAX
J6 LRP V143 MULRR AML
Now I’ve managed to figure out that WHALE is some kind of checkpoint between Cape Cod and Nova Scotia. BOS is obviously Logan Airport. SAX is a VOR station someplace in New Jersey. That leaves J77, which this thread has taught me is a high altitude route.
So here’s my question – is there anyplace online that I can find a map of route J77, or a description of it? I found a chart of the area on AeroPlanner, but it wanted me to buy a premium membership to view it. Is there any website where I can find this information for free?
My advance thanks for any help you might provide.
