Closest Flying Aircraft To You At This Moment: Flightradar24

Fri Jun 09, 2017 12:51 am

For those of you who have Flightradar24......a fun little quick game for you.

What is the closest flying aircraft to you at this very moment coming up on Flightradar24?

I have UPS Flight 1121, a 757-200 flying from ALB to BDL at this moment directly above.

LOT Flight 4, ORD-WAW, a 788 SP-LRB passed over a few minutes ago.

Right now, U22638, easyJet A319 from MXP to EDI.

However as I live between LTN and STN, it changes every 60 seconds or so. It's a fairly safe bet that it's some sort of Ryanair/Wizz/easyJet A319/A320 or B737 though!

Flying is tricky as my Uni is quite close to the southern end of the runway at HAM and whichever aircraft lines up for departure is closest, once they're airborne those on final approach are closer.

An unexpected result being about 8 miles east of LHR as the nearest is an Embraer Legacy 600 seemingly climbing out of LHR but no route shown. Also v close by is AZ 210 on its way into LhR from FCO operated by an Irish registered A320.

Looks like a close tie between FX982, a MD-10F on MEM-OAK and AA 547, an A321 on CLT-PHX. Located a few miles east of XNA.

I live near SYD, so there is always something in the air near me since I am on the 16L/34R path. But right now traffic is using 25 so it is pretty quiet. Right now Tiger 389 (VH-XUH) is about to land on 25 from Brisvegas.
