This web site blows my mind every time I use it.
Flightradar24 is a global flight tracking service that provides you with real-time information about thousands of aircraft around the world. The service is available online (from the link below) or from an app for your iOS or Android device.
I recently tracked a relative as they made a complicated journey home from Australia that involved a combination of flights – great fun and great geography!
