Virtually all aircraft on major commercial routes will show on at least one ATC screen somewhere if only for safety reasons.

Without sounding paranoid, I hope that outside air traffic control, the fewer that have access to this data the better.

Much better if a list of those with a need to know, is short as possible and data simply not available elsewhere in real time.

chrisjohn you'll have to make do with the Arrivals boards

an airband radio with digital keys you can track it from take off to shannon atc then the signals get weak as it crosses the atlantic where i think it comes under gander atc.

a lot of flights fly across to canada then follow the east coast of usa down to florida instead of a direct line acoss the atlantic.

when i went to florida and saw newfoundland out the window i thought i was on the wrong flight and had to check with the stewardess.

The flight paths are based on the Great Circle route which is the shortest distance between two points on the earth. If you are flying to Florida then then you can indeed fly very close to the east coast US.

Try this site, enter LGW for Gatwick and MCO for Orlando International.

Don't get confused reading Mercator maps because they are not correct.
