Default APRS on Steroids! Go Hawks!!

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

http://flightaware.com/live/flight/BOE12

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!

Well let me tell you....as the sole 12th man in my office building (upwards of 600 people), living and working in Denver, nothing would do my heart more good than to see that 747 fly over downtown Denver!

Go Hawks!!
