Last week I flew Delta from Charlotte to Detroit. Delta also offered free 
in-flight WiFi (Sponsored by...).

I started PocketAPRS on my iPad and was curious which position it would 
report.  It placed me right smack in the middle of Minneapolis/St.Paul 
Airport. Appearently that's were the gw IP-address was registered.
