Google Does What?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Fairstone Properties
How many times have you had to check your flight or someone's flight as you head out the door. Usually this means you have to goto the airports website or to the carriers website and find the link to flight status and enter in the flight number and see where if it is on time.

Now you have some more options via Google. On google's home page or in your google toolbar, enter the flight description (ex United 367). This will lead you to a results page and provide a link to get the information you are looking for.

It also has a link for FBOWeb, which you may not have seen before. Click this link and it will take you to some great tracking information AND a link for GOOGLE EARTH. THis is a kml file you can download and have realtime tracking in 3D via google Earth. AWESOME!!! Have fun.

Hmmm...maybe we can use this new Google service to keep track of the private plane owned by Google's founders that they are extremely private about.  NY Times has the story today. 

I'm just teasing the Google boys....I love the Goog
