Default APRS on Steroids! Go Hawks!!

Check out the flight track from Boeing Flight 12 today. Awesome!

Let's see, you have a 747 and want to go out for a spin in honor of your local football team. This is what you call hometown spirit. I wonder how much fuel it took to fly it for 5-1/2 hours to create this. And you'd have to be a real pro to copy back that clearance. It's interesting how they slowed it down on the corners if you look at the track log.

Complete with paint job!
