You can see what's happening at 37 major airports in the US right here.

That is one amazing website! Going to Favorites.
I just watched about five minutes of real time SFO. Wow.
Shows how outrageously stupid, even in simpler days, Reagan was to fire striking air traffic controllers.

That is super cool.

We dropped my daughter off at DCA for her trip over to Australia, and since it was international, she wanted to be there 2.5 hours early.

So we went to our home, 5 miles away, and an hour or two later, I was watching the status of her flight on my phone and was able to see her plane taking off over the Arlington sky. I could only pick hers out because with my binoculars I could see the airline logo on the tail of her plane, and her flight was listed as left the gate, but there were 4 flights in a row from another airline, and then finally one from her airline. So it had the be hers. And then afterwards, it was listed as on route.

This website would have made things a lot easier.

You might like to have a look at FR24

I tried to post a screenshot of the app from my iPad but the file was too large.

If you click on the aircraft icon, information about the flight will appear on the left of your PC screen.

As an alternative Planefinder is also pretty useful.

I wish I could say I noticed, but in my three visits to the SFO page yesterday I did not see that one of the four main runways (28L) was inactive.
I heard this morning that it is closed for repaving and caused significant delays starting yesterday and will continue for a few weeks.
And I Was There!

British Bomber, also a US Korean War fighter from a page with tons of pictures of that era including carriers.

Looks like the inlets were reworked on the Victor.

Imagine trying to set this Lockheed XFV-1-7 down on a carrier deck...

My befuddled early morning brain couldn't remember which engines were installed in the Victor.

Both the Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire and the Rolls-Royce Conway rang a bell. The answer is both!

Wiki says the B.1 version had the Sapphire and the B.2 had the Conway which probably explains the difference in the intakes. Not sure which is which though.

Link

The Victor also made an appearance earlier in the thread.

Prompted by Gravdigr's post:

ETA Looks like the B.2 (Conway) in the camouflage colour scheme and the B.1 (Sapphire) in the all white paint job.

I don't know nuttin about this plane, but Wikipedia has this:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_XFV

It talks about a different engine and says it never landed that way.

I say they gave up when they discovered that short of ejecting the pilot would be stuck there once he was down.
