Mashup: Google Earth + Flightradar = Cockpit view

Flightradar24 has a lovely new mashup rolling out on their service.

By feeding the heading, speed and altitude of a plane which you are tracking into an emulator flying through Google Earth, you can get a pilot’s-eye view of the flight in realtime.

Lovely mashup of existing technologies to give you a brand new experience.

That is the power of ingenuity.
