    Has anyone tried www.flightradar24.com in Edge (or perhaps IE) with the Google Earth plugin to follow a flight in 3D / cockpit view?

    Here IE crashes, Edge does not see the plugin….

    Wow what a page! I've never seen this before and i can't believe the sheer volume of traffic...

    My god we are screwed..

    But to get back to the original question, I'll have to try the plug in at some point and see if I get the same result.

    See all the traffic over Europe! I live so 30 KM south of Schiphol/Amsterdam Airport. So I am interested.

    Anyway, it is not a big deal. Thanks for answering.

    Well, as many (readers?) know, I am a retired air Traffic Controller. 35 years. Believe it, all of those have no chance of colliding. It happens, various reasons but, I boast, rarely the fault of ATC.
    Anyway. cut to the chase. It is, naturally, in my blood. Whenever anyone of my acquaintance, or in my family.goes on holiday, I track the whole trip. None of that mysterious MH stuff for me.
    fwiw. There are many such programs now on the web. They don't, particularly, need Googlearth

    The link works, on Edge, IE and Chrome. It is the 3D tab, visible when you track a flight, which provides you with some kind of 'real-time' cockpit view or side - or back view from the plane. It uses the Google Earth plug-in. In previous versions it worked, not flawlessly, but in a way. Now in W10 it looks like that plug-in is useless. In my opinion is it on Google to repair it. So no big deal.
    And I love to hear a better site....

    Bye for now,
    Henk

    Added: I just remember that you need Java for that option.....

    Ahh....I see. I don't use Java, so I won't be able to help.

    And Edge is out!

    Added:
    Just found in the Store: "Your computer does not support the Google Earth plug-in"
    So this ends this discussion. (and I am going to clean-up my little Aspire One)

    Thanks for any reaction,
    Henk

    Well, I updated a laptop and tested this again.
    Interesting result:
    - Edge: flightradar ok, 3D/cockpit view not working
    - IE 11: flightradar ok, 3D/cockpi tview ok (GEplugin survived from upgrading W7)
    - Chrome: flightradar ok, 3D/cockpit view wants me to download Google Earth plugin, which is not supported by W10
