Plane Finder provides near real time “virtual radar” air traffic radar maps. It’s easy to use and is an amazing app for anyone interested in aviation, planes, flights or air traffic control. It’s also great if you simply want to know what’s up there or want to see your friends and family in the air.
Live moving planes
Flight path contrails
Search by flight number
Beautifully detailed aircraft illustrations
Flight information such as - flight number, route, altitude, speed, plane type, airline, registration number
Technical information such as – squawk codes, ICAO/IATA codes, ADS Hexcode, heading
Plane Finder works by picking up ADS-B plane feeds used by all commercial planes to transmit their name, position, destination and lots more. This technology is actually faster than radar and is used in some places for air traffic control and navigation.

Amazing. Great app.
Icredible number of force closes. Almost unusable.
Buggy. Force closes a lot. Planes all disappear sometimes after viewing details. Needs quite a bit of polishing for 5 stars. Same as Ship Finder.
How cool is this!

I am just north of DFW with about a dozen planes overhead. On this app only two Continental ships show 40 miles south. Junk.
Works great on xperia x8. Fun little app to have.
Forcecloses alot, has the potential.to be a good app, just needs to fix the route data, alot of the flights have the incorrect data, fix route lines
