Type “Flights Overhead” In The Wolfram Alpha Search Engine

Wolfram Alpha has launched a new feature that allows you to find out if there are any airplanes directly above you. To do this, Wolfram Alpha uses your IP address to detect your location. The information about the flights are given too.

When clicking on the flight titles, you will learn where the flight’s origin and destinations are. This feature also works when using Wolfram Alpha on mobile devices too.

In a blog post, Wolfram Alpha said that you can use this feature to find out what you were looking at when you took a photo from an airplane window mid-flight.
