Looking for a few suggestions for some above average aviation related websites from various people.

Things like live ATC, interesting homepages etc.

Please keep it clean and aviation related!

And to coach people in advance when you want to type in the address, click on the URL button below the message screen, type (or copy and paste its easier) the address, then type the decription you want to see on the screen with the underline. It aint that hard!!!!!!!!! :cool:

Are there other websites?
if so, why? :confused:

G'day Stallie!

One I really like is:-

www.airliners.net (http://www.airliners.net)

They have some great photographs which can be downloaded. (I have a photo of a Northwest DC-10-40 instrument panel at night as my wallpaper, straight from this site. Looks great.)

A great source of aviation-related images for all aircraft enthusiasts.

UK AAIB (http://www.aaib.detr.gov.uk/index/index.htm)

Australian ATSB (http://www.atsb.gov.au/aviation/)

and if I need some mental exercise or someone to rage at,

the JAA (http://www.jaa.nl/)

Thanks muchly for the JFK feed, just been monitoring and heard amongst other things an Air France Concorde arrival and a helo operating around "ground zero" which I assume is involved in the AA accident operation.

Good for keeping your RT and SA up to date with the Jepps for the NYK area open in front of you.

The ONLY good thing about airliners.net is the photo collections. Most of the topics are posted (and answered) by spotty teenagers whose opinions on aviation matters are about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike...sorry Guv, no offence meant to you.

If any of you want to find out what really happened to the AA A300 log on, it'll blow your mind!!

You could try this little monkey (http://www.pilotpointer.com/), there are one or two aviation links on it. For nervous flyers, this one will put your mind at ease. (http://www.airdisaster.com/)
