New shiny approaches

Hmm, it seems to be here.

Package Progress

I'm quite amused by the latest two times. 10:09 local time Philadelphia is 15:09 local time East Midlands. So the apparent time taken to cross the Atlantic is 1 minute.

Either that, or the actual time is between 01:36 and 10:09 Philadelphia time, which is much more plausible. 8.5 hours from being scanned aboard an aircraft to being scanned out of it at the far end is very plausible indeed.
