Aircraft maker Boeing has launched an online 787 Flight Tracker depicting all in-progress 787 flights around the world.
The tracker is updated every 30 minutes and is based on data from Flight Aware. Users can also view the position of planes overlaid on a map on Google Earth as well.
The 787 tracker, with its long list of airlines and flights, is an interesting idea by Boeing to boost passenger confidence in the Dreamliner, perhaps its most ambitious project since the 747.
The aircraft has experienced new technical issues since it resumed flying after being grounded for nearly five months over battery problems in January. This includes a recent fire in an Ethiopian 787 parked at Heathrow and multiple problems with Japanese airline ANA’s 787s.
