Plane Finder AR (augmented reality) iPhone and Android apps from UK-based Pinkfroot display aircraft transmitting ADS-B Out signals. Touching the aircraft image brings up its ID, type, operator’s name, altitude, groundspeed, heading and more. When the device’s camera is pointed at a visible overflying aircraft, the AR integrates the smartphone’s GPS position with the aircraft’s altitude and its ADS-B’s GPS position to display bearing, distance and the same full data block.
