I have just been amusing myself tracking United Airlines Flight UAL922 from Washington (Dulles) to London (Heathrow). The plane was the Boeing 767-322. I picked up the flight as it passed over us here in Wexford at 37,000 ft and at 550 mph. Over Llanelli (Wales) it dropped to 32,000 at the same speed and 22,000 ft over Bristol (450 mph). It dropped to 9,000 ft (300 mph) over Woking, circled over Epsom, returned to Woking and began to queue over Reading at 4,000 ft (200mph) to land safely at Heathrow.
