That is not 'sky-writing'.

That is RADAR tracking of the flight..........

Flight tracking but not radar, it is ADS-B. Nextgen air traffic control will use ADS-B

 

Automatic dependent surveillance—broadcast (ADS–B) is a surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling it to be tracked.

“NSFW”? Not safe for work?

 

Yes. Also posting it would violate wire guidelines.

You are correct and I know well of ADS. I used RADAR as slang.........

Same type of tracking used for commercial ships and railroads.

Most folks when they see the term 'sky-writing', think of smoke trails from the aircraft.

Ain't like the good ol' days when you could track a plane by the trail of parts they left down on the ground. :blink:
