Wolfram Alpha can now tell you what planes are flying above you right now

There are plenty of apps that tell you when commercial flights arrive and take off from airports, but now Wolfram Alpha is the only one that can tell you what planes are high above your head at any given moment.

All you have to do is type “planes overhead” into the search box and Wolfram will give you a list of all commercial planes that are right above you, based on your current location.

And then by clicking on any of the planes, you can see where they’re coming from and where they’re going. Pretty neat. However, since this data comes from the FAA, only flights with at least one endpoint in the US will show up. Sorry Europe. Again.
