    Track Santa

    Hi Mike
    I am wondering if it would be possible to add a "Track Santa" to the map I am sure that there are lots of Grand parents like myself that would love to show the track in amongst the planes. I am aware of others like http://www.noradsanta.org/en/ but feel it would be a great addition to the site and may help to introduce kids to the site.

    Especially for this time of year

    Fun reading the 2011 thread about Santa.
    http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...ears-Santa-One

    2012 - Santa's new worldwide delivery system & video

    I believe the other tracking sites(PlaneFinder & Planeplotter) did it for "Santa" in 2011.

    found it...

    Yes,.. Please

    Nice,.
    For the last 2-3 years,. Ive been doing it on the English Chat room,
    with the link to Norad,. Which was fun, not only for me, but the younger
    members.

    Mike(Boss),..If it is all Possible,. It would be a Great idea if we could also
    get a SA-NTA 1,. flying with our normal traffic.

    It would also save me of giving continuely a link out to NORAD.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to All,. from the English chat room and Me.

    Have a good one David

    Update:

    Santa Airfreight announce that their flight number Xmas 001HOHO has been delayed.Number 2 reindeer suffered a mince pie strike on the runway prior to take-off and has returned to its stand to enable veterinary checks to to be carried out.It is anticipated that any delays will be minimal.

    Congratulations to the crew,. by so a quick responce.

    Please dont take it as a critic,. But ,. could you put him an FL600.
    And his clock is not to sure,. As he should be at Fiji for just after Midnight
    and then tie in to the datelines of the Countries.

    But sorry for me NORAD,. didnt comeup to the standard

    Big Thanks,. once again Guys.. Ho HO Ho

    Hear some of Santa's encrypted radio calls to Air traffic control.
    Reported that Santa departed Australian airspace - VIDEO/AUDIO
