The 'guest' wifi I've been using has allowed me to
Listen to live ATC while using flight radar to track aircraft...sounds boring,but it's rather interesting...

I tried looking up Heathrow, unfortunately it's illegal for private citizens of the UK to own scanners

Apparently this must be due to WW2

Maybe it's due to the risk of hackers getting into the system and telling pilots to land on Kensington High Street...

But wouldn't that be a sight? We land planes in the Hudson River over here on rare occasions. We tried that in the Potomac River with much less success.

Our local media was gaga over it ;D

Maybe it's due to the risk of hackers getting into the system and telling pilots to land on Kensington High Street...

Anyone with a police scanner can listen in... volunteers from around the world hook these scanners into Liveatc...

Obviously for reasons of security it's highly illegal for us citizens to talk on these frequencies
