FlightAware: Flight Tracking

Category: LiveSearch, Showcase

FlightAware is a site that lets you track flights, and get analysis.

You can see live information about all flights that are going on, narrowing in on particular flights, or airports.

There are numerous ajax features, including a lot of live search features.

One interesting UI choice is telling the user “keep typing, I need more information” on the live search side. This is in comparison to doing a live search with one letter (too many results), and not showing anything until the magic number of letters is typed (e.g. three).

Oh, and it’s kinda fun to just click around and see what is going on up there :)
