Flight Radar?

Found a website which lets you see the paths of all flights over Europe live!

Longest taxi ride home...

British comedy legend John Cleese took a $5,400 taxi ride from Oslo to Brussels after becoming stranded in Europe's volcanic ash travel crisis.

"We checked every option, but there were no boats and no train tickets available," Cleese told Norwegian TV2 in a telephone interview posted on the network's website in Norwegian.

"That's when my fabulous assistant determined the easiest thing would be to take a taxi."

The bill? A whopping 30,000 kroner ($5,400), said Cleese, who was visiting the Norwegian capital to take part in the popular Scandinavian talk show Skavlan.

The taxi carried two extra drivers for the 1,500-kilometre drive, TV2 reported.

"It will be interesting. I'm not in a hurry," Cleese said, adding that from Brussels he planned to take the Eurostar train to London, where he hoped to arrive by 3:00pm (local time) Saturday.

"I will think about a joke you've probably already heard: How do you get God to laugh? Tell him your plans," Cleese said.

Heres his route on google maps...
