Tracking the Boeing Dreamliner in Google Earth

The 787 Dreamliner Flight Tracker is a simple yet robust site that shows the current location of every 787 Dreamliner around the world. Not only does it provide a real-time list of current flights, but you can click on their Google Earth view to see an impressive use of the Google Earth Plugin that shows off the flight paths and locations:

Once on the map of planes, you can select one of them to get a real-time view of that flight. You’ll see a 3D model of the plane (customized for each airline), with multiple views to select. It even provides sound to make the experience more realistic.

  1. Not “every” dreamliner, just a selective few.
