    Back when I preordered the 5th gen iPods, I remember alot of people using some site to watch realtime progress of the Fedex flights- I can find the site via Google, but can't seem to find any flight numbers from Shanghai to Anchorage (that's what I remember the flights being last time). Does anyone know the fedex flight numbers? I'd really love to watch the planes again.

    People really obsess that much over tracking their products?

    Yes, in fact.. people do; it's part of the fun of it all ..on top of being an Apple fan, I'm also somewhat of an aviation nerd..

    By the way, I found out that FX 48 and FX 94 are the flight numbers; they depart PVG and land in ANC . Does anyone know a site that shows international flights on a map? Most of them only have information once it's in US airspace.

    Try flightaware. I've used it to track a bunch of Lufthansa flights crossing the pond, so it should work for the pacific. I'm not certain that it tracks flights for cargo carriers, but I would assume that it does.

    here we go:

    Excuse my ignorance...

    but how do you obtain the flight number of the flight your iPod Touch is on?
