Both teams facing off this weekend in Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII are lodging less than one mile from each other. The San Francisco 49ers are staying at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort. The Kansas City Chiefs are staying at the Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort. Both teams
Apologies for the late-night musings, but my inability to sleep has led me to write this post. I've been monitoring aircraft linked to the PGA Tour, LIV, PIF, and various athletes and golfers for a while. Regularly tracked planes include the PGA Tour's N795HG and Saudi

Just five years ago on April 1, 2019, Amazon put out a video of a blimp releasing a bunch of drones, some of which were carrying packages. It was clear at the time that this was an April Fools Day joke. Now it appears that joke is a reality. Amazon.
Little bit of speculation below, but what else is new...? There's many rumors flying around today about Jon Rahm joining the LIV Golf Tour. This coming (via WSJ) just weeks after much heavier speculation from Xitter accounts all over. If you read my post earlier in the year
As promised in yesterday's post, I'm here again to give a link to track Biden and Harris as they fly to Atlanta for Rosalynn Carter's memorial service near Emory University. AF1 (possibly the decoy) took off before AF2, just before 10:00am Eastern. Track
My first post in a while, so I'll keep this short. Rosalynn Carter died last week at 96 years old in her lifelong town of Plains, GA. There's currently a motorcade bringing her body to the Carter Center where she will lay in repose. A tribute
Quick and to the point here. I made a major update last night to the RadarAtlas Chrome Extension. In the latest version (v8.6.2), each time you click on an aircraft on the map, it will automatically display the ownership details in the top left of the screen. You
Ahh Naarmo. A day doesn't go by where I don't learn something new thanks to the Naarmo FAA file. Today's finding is a 2008 Gulfstream 5 that's flying southeast from Bozeman, MT and is currently over Tennessee at the time of writing.
If you're reading this, you're either a follower of this blog or a fan of the RadarAtlas Chrome Extension. Possibly both. I'm writing this post to shed light on the most recent update of the RadarAtlas Extension. In v8.6.0 which was released
This post is a duplicate from Threads. Follow me here: https://www.threads.net/@radaratlas If you saw my blogpost from September, you'd know I found that Mark Zuckerberg got himself a shiny new helicopter - N14RP. I was checking the other day to see if he had
As a reminder, these posts are often speculative. We can know where an aircraft flew to and when it flew there, but we don't know who is on board. Today, June 6, 2023, there was a major announcement of a merger between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf.
Earlier today (6/4/23) there was a plane crash about 130 miles southwest of Washington, D.C. The aircraft was a small private jet - a Cessna 560 carrying registration number N611VG, manufactured in 1990. If you spent the day Googling that NNumber, you probably didn't find
I intend to use this post to track big names in and out of Augusta, GA for the 2023 Masters Tournament. Always an exciting time of year for me as a golf fan and an aviation fan/tracker. As a reminder, you can install the RadarAtlas Chrome Extension from the

I just read an article about Zelensky's upcoming US visit which is to take place tomorrow, December 21st, 2022 in Washington DC. As always, when there is a big news story that involves flights, I immediately take to ADSBExchange's replay function to try to spot the

Yesterday, my fellow aircraft tracking pal, Jack Sweeney, was banned from Twitter. Along with the ban on his personal account came bans on all of his separate jet-tracking accounts including @elonjet. I knew at that point that my fate on Twitter was grim. I hadn't tweeted about much

Before you say it, I know. I know this is typically an aviation blog. However, I love researching people especially if they're in the headlines. I scour online sources to try to find their airplanes. In this case, I've been researching Kanye West to see if
Top Aces is the only commercial F16 operator in the world. They have a large fleet of aircraft and have received huge military contracts for training pilots in their planes.
UPDATE: As of 9/13/23, there's been some discovery that N14RP, the helicopter listed below as belonging to Zuckerberg is no longer in his fleet. It does appear that N14RU is his new means of transport between the Bay and Tahoe. Earlier in the year my internet
Today, July 5th, 2022 began the Sun Valley Conference in southern Idaho. This is a yearly summit attended by the world's wealthiest and most influential people. Among the invitees for the 2022 session include Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, and countless others. The airport used by these
This post will be short as there isn't much supporting info out there. My database is from the openskynetwork [https://opensky-network.org/aircraft-database]. It is updated monthly. The database only has 4 planes that are associated with Ukraine. After some research on my end (start here [https://en.
It's been several weeks since I initially tracked a decent sized list of oligarchs fleeing Russia. Putin's invasion of Ukraine caused eventual sanctions [https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2022/03/24/fact-sheet-united-states-and-allies-and-partners-impose-additional-costs-on-russia/] on a sweeping list of people strangling assets all over the world.

There is slight speculation here, but I suppose that's not unique to this post. I'm a big fan of aviation. I'm a big fan of looking at the globe.adsbexchange map and seeing what's there. I'm a huge fan of
Hi. Today is 4/5/22. In the past 2 years, my Google Chrome extension has rebranded a couple of times. This blog is only 2 months old and has already changed names twice as well. The purpose of this post is to provide a little clarity on today'
Is this really happening? Is The Goat playing in this year's Masters Tournament after all? There was tons of speculation last week and this week about maybe Tiger playing in the Wednesday Par 3, or perhaps the whole week. There were Tiger sightings at his home club, Medalist,
It is 9:34am EDT time for me. It is 2:34pm in Poland, where US President Joe Biden is today. Biden was in Brussels yesterday for an emergency NATO meeting where he met with other world leaders in the midst of the Russia/Ukraine war. The trip to Poland
AF1 just took off. Before it was an E4B (doomsday plane) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_E-4]. There's also action from two C-32's, a C-40C, and a US Army C-37B that all appear to be headed in the same direction on the same route. Biden
Was revoking the airworthiness of Russian jets "enough"? Are Russian jets still flying around the world?
I read in an interesting article [https://www.flyingmag.com/u-s-warns-against-helping-russian-aircraft-fly-home/] today on FlyingMag.com. The article suggests that AirBridgeCargo, a subsidiary of Volga-Dnepr Group violated US sanctions by relocating their 747 fleet [https://www.planespotters.net/airline/AirBridgeCargo] back to Russia. I did some digging to figure out where
Here's an image of the China Eastern Airlines 737 family of their fleet. Scroll down to see links to track these. UPDATE: As of 3/22/22, they're all grounded. I learned this morning that China Eastern Airlines was grounding all of their Boeing 737-800/NG
It has come to my attention that Russian airline Volga-Dnepr has asked flight mapping platforms to cease the display of their fleet until further notice. When these planes are expected to vanish from FlightRadar24, FlightAware, etc, is unknown to me. ADSBexchange.com will continue showing these planes (and all planes)
Disclaimer: I'm not posting this to follow Bill Gates' every move or track his aircraft to an exact position. I am a hobbyist aircraft tracker. I made the RadarSpots Chrome Extension [https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/radarspots/kgionpkdifedafldjflcbeojkencnaja] to make aircraft spotting and tracking more fun.
Tonight, while researching aircraft registrations in Oklahoma City, OK, I stumbled upon a familiar name that I didn't expect to see. Dippin' Dots. That's right, the ice cream of the future. The FAA says N590MC is registered to Dippin' Dots LLC All those times
I'll always be a heavy user of ADSBexchange.com. I'll also always be a heavy user of my own RadarSpots chrome extension that pairs so well (I know, I'm biased) with the ADSBexchange map. Today I was looking at the Presidents & Prime Ministers
So you're curious about tracking airplanes or maybe you're just curious who that jet that's flying overhead belongs to. Usually if you live in a big city the airplanes overhead are commercial airliners. If you live in a popular destination, sometimes those planes could
Today I spotted on the map an odd sight: a non-military 1961 KC-135R. Weird. The plane is registered via a trust, but it is owned and operated by Meta Strategic Mobility [https://meta.aero/] and it appears they have a fleet size of 4. Further research shows that their planes
This morning I saw a post about a Russian VIP transport plane inbound IAD/Washington DC. I didn't believe it at first. I started doing some research into it and, sure enough, there it was on multiple map/radar sites.As of 6:45am EST on 3/5/
