Tracking Flight real-time with Apple Maps on a Boeing 737 [Video]

Saw this post on Reddit and decided tom post it here. Uploaded by YouTube user jzzsxm - the video was taken on-board a 737 flying across the US. On screen you can see the progress of the flight flying at about 500 miles/hour. You get a sense on fast these airplanes actually cover distances. It must be simply amazing to do this and stare at your screen using Google Maps and checking your progress in real-time. The videos was first posted to Reddit and the discussion rages on as to whether GPS or Wi-Fi was being used. No matter how this gets done, it's a fascinating video to watch. Please leave a comment below with what you think.
