Flightrader 24

Airplanes are really annoying when trying to record the sounds of nature. I remember tracking Lyre birds one morning at the Washpool National Park. I finally got with in 20ft from that had just started a to sing and dance. I hit record, feeling excited about how awesome this recording is going to be, only to hear the distant sound of a jet coming. By the time the jet had passed the Lyre bird had decided to continue on his way…. And I didn't get the recording...

Since then I have discovered an app for your phone called "Flightrader 24". This app shows all major airplanes in the air and in what direction they are travelling. This has been extremely handing in finding new places to record at where I’m not being intorupted every ten minutes by airplanes.
