As EAA’s B-17 and Ford Tri-Motor continue to tour the country, you can now track their movements online and in real time! The hand-held SPOT Satellite Messenger device is now aboard both airplanes, allowing those with an Internet connection to track the GPS location of the plane via Google Maps when flying missions during the tour.

SPOT is the world's first satellite messenger that uses the GPS network to pinpoint a user's location and transmit that information and selected messages to friends, family or an emergency response center over a separate satellite network.

Follow the B-17 and Ford Tri-Motor in flight at www.findmespot.com/eaa. Scroll down on the page for the link. In future weeks, we’ll be announcing other aircraft that will be using the SPOT on their journeys to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2008 so you can follow along from your home computer.
