Real-time 3D flight display

The Leftover

Recommended Posts

Last week, I discovered that real-time aircraft flight data is available through an open API.  Two, in fact.  Already having a city, I decided show overflights.  I put in a five-minute delay to permit me to smooth the data but this is almost real-time.

Video shows FedeX coming into SFO over San Francisco.  This is not very zoomy but it feels signficant.  I am not entirely sure what to do with it.

Airplane model was built out of cardboard, dowels, plywood and rubber bands.  https://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#H3Z6J1#7

Parametric jet model!  Cooooool.  The whole project is interesting and creative, TL!  Nice work!    Can we add 'tracking' and 'gps' to the tags, if apropos?  Heck, add airplane, aircraft and jet, too, if you like.

This post needs to be found by many, imho.  Valuable!  Nice BJS trailblazing, for sure.
