Tracking Santa’s Flight Plan

Santa flying over night sky
Happy holidays!

You probably all know of my love for Live Flight tracking using a Raspberry Pi (or more precisely a plethora of them) and Vertica.

Although I started flight tracking around 2012, my interest grew when I saw this from NATS (National Air Traffic Services) https://vimeo.com/110348926 – a series of great video clips from UK, Middle East, Europe and North Atlantic

Though at this time of year, I always check out their preparation for Santa!

Have a great holiday! Looking forward to 2020!
