I downloaded the Pro version to my phone and it looks the same as the website when viewing on a computer. Pretty neat.
Sometimes at work I'm surveying west of Des Moines where the aircraft are fairly low, and when I look up I wonder what type of aircraft and where they are headed. Now I can pull out my phone and find out
Thanks for the cheap entertainment

I live not to far from the Chino Airport. So in addition to the normal light aircraft and commercial stuff, I get to see a lot of vintage war-birds fly by. So I've seen formations of P-38's, Zeros, a lot of B-25's, Migs & Sabre jets, B-17's, C-47's, a gaggle of P-51's, well you get the idea. Chino has several air museums and private companies that restore the vintage airframes. In early May, they have their annual airshow, so the skies are full with of fighters, bombers and cargo haulers then. Look at the Chino Airport on Google Earth and you might be surprised what you see parked there. (Just had a fly-by from a P-51 as I am writing this, no mistaking that engine).
I also get to see an occasional C-17 or KC-135 from March ARB. And once in a while a V-22 from the USMC dropping off people in the nearby Cleveland National Forest.
And when fire season is in full force and something is burning nearby, then you can add converted P3's, P2's, Air Guard C-130's, a lot of rotary wing stuff and once in a great while that fire fighting DC-10.
And to the OP, sorry for the thread hijack!
The ap you directed us towards is uber-cool. I live about 20 miles due west of Sea-Tac, so what I see all the time is a bunch of folks headed towards Hawaii and the Far East...
I'm 25 miles east of the 3800 acre hardwood bombing range. F-16's from air national guards states surrounding Wisconsin practice bomb/strafing there. Every other year there was a open house where you could watch the jets come in tree top level firing their guns and dropping bombs ,with lots of demilitarized equipment to go thru and climb all over. Since 9/11/01 this has ended and razor wire has gone up. I used to go in to the flight tower on weekends and stand up top around the porch around the tower these guys are great but now this has all changed now you have to stand outside the fence a 1/4 mile away if you want to watch. Twin prop Helo's drop men from ropes and do fly byes firing their door guns. one year a group of civil war recreaters set up a cannon battery of 25 cannons firing them all at once, wow that was something to see/hear. there was a 30 cal set up you could stand in line to shoot 25 rounds of live ammo down range.to bad these day are gone now. The same thing goes at fort McCoy with the apache helo's doing maneuvers and live fire exercises'.
Yesterday I saw a Fleet Fort go directly over my house at low altitude, not enough time to get my camera.
I found a picture on-line, from the Welland ON Airport.
It was a WWII trainer made in Fort Erie ON in 1939.

We get a good laugh every summer when the "pot patrol", searching for marijuana plots hovers over us while we hoe our garden (no pot in it, just veggies!). Otherwise, it's a pretty peaceful,quiet & scenic spot for some hard work.
