High Altitude Plane Spotting. It’s a Fun and Free Activity.
Klamath Falls has some rather busy airways over us! I’m sure you’ve seen those high altitude jet liners cruising over head in our clear blue skies.
Plane Finder is one of many airplane tracking apps you can use to see in real time what is passing overhead. At a glance you can see airspeed, altitude, aircraft type, and even the flight origination and destination.
There is a moving map display within the app that shows all commercial aircraft in our area. Just click one of the airplanes for in depth information.
You will be surprised at the number of aircraft moving over Klamath Falls at any given time. Our airport also makes a nice emergency landing spot for those planes passing over and has been used in the past by Allegiant and Alaska Airlines more than once.
Plane Finder is my personal favorite and it’s Free!
